Tony True is a singer, songwriter and producer from Ottawa, Ontario Canada. He is able to perform just about any style of music; however traditional country music is where his heart lies. Tony has been a highly respected artist in the Ottawa Valley music scene since the early 1980’s. He has performed in many popular local establishments and continues to perform today, most notably with his band Tony True & the Truetones, which he created over 20 years ago. The members have changed, but Tony has stayed true.
Here are a few comments that people have to say about Tony True and his music:
“What strikes me about Tony is that he’s not only a very talented songwriter and musician, but he’s also a great person. We play a lot of his music at our station, and every time we’ve asked him to perform live at one of our events in the Ottawa Valley, Tony has not only agreed to play, but he did so the very way he carries himself every day: with class, professionalism, a sense of humor, and great respect for his audience. Working with Tony is a pleasure, and if you have a chance to watch him perform live, don’t miss it. His music will have you singing along and tapping your toes, and his original songs will have you doing the same, but you’ll also be blown away by his lyrics. Tony True is the real deal.”
