In his own words
From a very young age I was intrigued by Elvis Presley – I really liked his voice and sound. Later on I moved on to musicians and bands like Bob Dylan, The Band, Neil Young, Kris Kristofferson, Luke Kelly – I really liked that folk music. Then I discovered the beautiful sounds of Bob Marley, Jimmy Buffett, The Eagles, Eric Clapton, Stevie Ray Vaughan, The Scorpions, AC/DC, Thin Lizzy, Van Morrison, BB King, Vince Gill, Matalica, Chuck Berry – anything that moves you or goes boogie and has strings or brass attached, I like it. The list goes on and on. www.tonykirwanmusic.com
