Tony Grey Tony Grey

Tony Grey was born in Newcastle, England in 1975 where music was just another family member.

At the age of 18 Tony broke his back in a horrific car accident. It was during his recovery he started playing the bass and whilst under the watchful eye of legendary guitarist John McLaughlin, Tony successfully auditioned for a scholarship to the world-renowned Berklee College Of Music in Boston

Whilst at Berklee, Tony took time out to join the newly formed pop band Bliss. The group had signed a major record deal with the legendary record producer Terry Ellis who in the past discovered Billy Idol, Jethro Tull, Blondie, Huey Lewis & The News, Pat Benitar to name a few. Tony spent the next 18 months touring with the group throughout Asia. After appearing on several TV shows in Asia, recording three hit singles, filming music video's which were featured on MTV, and achieving a top ten CD, Tony left the group in order to return to the USA to complete his studies at Berklee. During his time at Berklee, Tony studied with some of the greatest teachers--Kenwood Dennard, Larry Watson, Bruce Gertz and Rich Appleman. During his remaining four semesters Tony won the prestigious Outstanding Performer Award.

Since graduating, Tony has led many clinics and master classes at Berklee and has appeared in many of the college's showcase events, including a tribute concert to U.S. Pop Legends Steely Dan, hosted by the president of Berklee and attended by Donald Fagen and Walter Becker of Steely Dan

All About Jazz needs your support

Donate
All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
