From the heart of the Liverpool scene comes a troubadour with the soulfulness of a true musician. Meet Tony Steele of Tony Steele and the Massacre. We featured him in a First Listen feature a few weeks back and our interest has grown as much as yours surely will In this interview we talk about his music and his future plans and what it takes to make it in what many call the music capital of the world.
About Tony Steele:
Liverpool singer/songwriter Tony Steele has returned to music with a new single ‘Starting From Scratch’, released on September 25th and showcasing a stripped down folk/rock sound.
Session musicians Charlie Landsborough Jnr, Laura Mackinlay, Peter Macparland and Grant Walker complete the line up of his band, The Massacre.
Tony’s first band Monkey Steps, a psychedelic Scouse skiffle group, supported Alabama 3 and Pete Doherty. They also gave Catfish and the Bottlemen their first Liverpool gig when the young Welsh band opened for Monkey Steps at Liverpool’s legendary Cavern Club.
Tony’s lyrics are based on the three years he spent away from music drawing inspiration from the ups and downs that life has thrown at him. His new music was premiered at two gigs in London supporting Zak Starkey’s band Penguins Rising and Inder Goldfinger’s The Winachi Tribe, and was so well received that he has announced a UK tour, starting with a gig supporting John Power at Liverpool’s Kazimier. Tony Steele and The Massacre will also be supporting Cast in Kendal, Alloa, and Paisley as well as headlining gigs in Birmingham, London, and Glasgow. The band will also be supporting John McCullough and the Escorts in Liverpool.
