Tony Malone

Active: 1966-


From the liner notes of his 1975 debut LP: "Tony Malone's career since 1977 in the music world has been a star studded one but not without its disappointments. Tony's first break came when Mick Treacy, an artist he was backing was unable to appear due to uillness and Tony stepped in and amazed all present with his excellent singing. At around this time, Tony was asked to join the immensely popular group known as The Weavers. The Weavers consisted of Kevin Geraghty, Don Knox (later in Spud, Brendan Lesson and Stan McCarthy. During his time with them Tony sang lead vocals on two of their hits namely "Henry My Son" and "The Fiddler". In 1971 following to a family bereavement Tony left the business but returned in 1973 as a solo artist mainly due to the insistance of his close friends. He has had phenomenal success as a cabaret artist playing to packed houses wherever he goes. Now following two single releases you his fans have the opportunity of listening to this Tony's first album which includes many of his popular cabaret numbers and self-penned songs."
