ROCKWiRED RADiO PROFiLES PRESENTS:
THE EARNEST SOUND OF TONY DESiMONE
AND HiS BRAND NEW E.P. 'AS WE GO 'ROUND THE SUN'
JUNE 11, 2012 - Traveling often to Hawaii to do testing for his day job as a rocket scientist, singer/songwriter TONY DESIMONE finds himself breezing through a lot of airports holding the ukulele, which has become one of his favorite instruments. Recently, a fellow passenger saw the uke, came up to him and asked, “Are you any good?” DESIMONE, who also plays percussion and guitar on his uplifting new five track EP AS WE GO 'ROUND THE SUN, replied “I play.” The guy said, “Well, if they pay you to play, you must be good.” That’s quite an understatement considering the success DeSimone has had since the release last year of his full length debut The Second Time Around, which received stellar reviews and has earned him a slew of exciting new performing opportunities. The momentum continues as the title track song from the new EP has already been licensed by TinderBox music to be included on the cue sheet for the DISCOVERY CHANNEL. Over the past year, the multi-talented performer brought his unique mix of Americana rock and lilting and cool, beach-styled acoustic and electric tunes to numerous festivals and conferences—including the Seaside Heights Music Festival, the Singer Songwriter of Cape May Conference and the Millennium Music Conference in Harrisburg. “THE LINE ON MY HORIZON,” a romantic harmonic rocker with a revival spirit from the new EP, was included on the official compilation of these latter two events. His calendar for Spring/Summer 2012 filled quickly, with weekend gigs at the Sharrott Winery in Southern New Jersey, shows at The Alchemist and the Barrister in Princeton (one of his regular haunts) and a monthly show at the Oyster Creek Bar on the Southern Jersey Shore.
