The first track ‘STS’ is gritty and dark rock song, with stunning and emotional strings, a great start to an eclectic and daring album. The seventh track ‘Romance’ couldn’t be more different, it is a delicate and deeply emotional solo piano song, that wordlessly tells tales of broken hearts and tear stained regret. The last track on this emotional album is ‘Free Hands’, which takes a desolate and resonant bass guitar soundscape, creating images of the dusty desert with obvious tributes to Hendrix.

GOLD THUNDER – THE BOOK

This story is about my personal quest for Gold as a musician to the stars. My journey led me to many well-springs of shinyGold by performing on many Gold and Platinum recordings and performing live concert tours for many years with Gold and Platinum recording artists. The ride has not been an easy one, it has been filled with plenty of heartache, financial un-compensation, disrespect, mental and emotional anxiety, depression for some and other negative energies that make the path quiet challenging if you want to still live a reasonable fulfilling life. On the other hand, there is no greater joy than doing what you most love, and were put here on Earth to do! The amount of profound and infinite joy and pure creative energy rush which you receive from performing music is pureheaven.The quest for Gold, a Gold Record that is which represents 1 million record sales. This is the upper most, and important goal in a music artist or musicians mind. The Gold Record represents a literal lifetime of secure work as long as you are healthy and of sound mind. To play-perform on a Gold Record as a musician and is also a big boon for both the bank and the ego. For a musician playing with Gold Record Artists is also much desired! This is because of the higher pay scale and work stability. To play on a Gold Record is a lifetime dream for many musicians throughout the world 24/7. It means Fame and fortune literally.

 

It really is your 15 minutes of glory. Some even are lucky enough to perform on more than one or several Gold Recordings.When I started playing professionally at age 14, I listened to a lot of music on the radio and recordings, and wanted in on that American Dream. I didn’t realize what a Gold Record was until later when I learned about the top 10 or forty million sellers. I dabbled in sports speed-skating in a few local races with moderate success, and really liked it, but I decided music was my ticket to ride. I knew what a Gold Ribbon award was and it usually meant fame and fortune on some level, so this was my early experience with winning Gold. But I knew inside that “Music” was my golden opportunity!Detroit in the 60’s was a dynamic, creative and economical urban city. Bustling with Plenty of jobs from automobile manufacturers Ford, GM, Chrysler etc, the Vietnam War, the Hippy movement, social and racial change were also happening in a big way. It was a time of great change. Music of all types was coming on the scene and having a huge impact on society. Detroit was also a town of intense danger and the criminal element. Detroit actually was called “murder capital” in those times. With all this going on, Detroit was still one of the most exciting places to live for a musician. *** Click on image to book excerpts!

Good luck Tony, we love you, Mike, Marcia, and Dalton. – MMM Music

* Tony Newton, one of the most talented entities I have ever had the pleasure to hear and get to know, Truly a diamond that will not be hidden. – Jauqo III-X, Bassist/Producer

* I met Tony at a Motown session, I had heard through the vine as well as hearing his playing how great he was, he was Smokey Robinsons musical director and played with Tony Williams whom I admired what a great musician talent as well as a great person. James Gadson – World Renowned Drummer/Producer

* Mean Streets Rock Magazine of Los Angeles states, “Tony Newton is a monumental master and true music visionary!”

* Tony Newton, is one of the best creative minds I come across in my lifetime and he is also a real musical genius dating back to Motown as a musician known as the baby funk brother – Lou Nathan, CEO Nexxus Ent.

* Tony Newton is one of the most innovative and creative musicians and bassists of our time. He has been rocking everyone’s world from the bottom up for years. I first met and began recording with Tony at Holland-Dozier-Holland’s Invictus and Hotwax labels. As I played the piano, in the headphones, I was immediately impressed with the strength, precision and creativity of Tony Newton’s bass lines. Take a listen now and you too will be equally amazed. Tony is also a great friend with a warm and caring spirit and, if you listen carefully, you’ll hear that spirit reflected in his music. – Sylvester Rivers IMC Entertainment Group

* Once in a while, not very often, a songwriter will come up with what we call a “classic” that’s what Tony Newton has managed to do on Tony Williams album “Believe it” Newton’s songs “Snake Oil ” and “Red Alert” are both classics. Too bad they were on the same album; I think they would have been better off on different albums. Who ever heard of having two classic songs on one album? I just played a week’s gig at the Iridium club in New York. Guess what the only song we played that wasn’t my own? Snake Oil of course! – Robby Krieger, The Doors

* When I arrived at Motown in 1963, Tony Newton was already there as the bass player for the Miracles. He was even there before Earl Van Dyke or Uriel Jones. Tony and I were two of the first musicians (now still living) to tour Europe with Motown acts. He was and still is one of the best bass players that ever did it. Later, when I became a touring artist, Tony joined me as the bass player. I was very familiar with his skills, but during a sound check, Tony sat at the piano and performed a sensational Beethoven Symphony. I didn’t know the range of his ability and was totally surprised at his versatility. When I questioned him about his piano “training”, he casually smiled and said “Oh, I taught myself to play the piano”. When I recall the production of the documentary “Standing in the Shadows of Motown”, it’s difficult to believe Tony was not considered as the bass player. In my opinion, he would have added more credibility and history of the involved musicians. I say here and now, in my estimation, based on the facts, Tony Newton is a Funk Brother – Jack Ashford Legendary Motown Funk Brother and Grammy Winner.
