Many on the South Coast know of Tony King, author of Fishing for Music as the fellow band member of Beautifully Mad with Nina Vox who are without doubt two of Australia’s finest Singer/songwriters. ARIA Award winning Tony King was named Australian Songwriter of the Year 2009 and Best Lyrics at the International Songwriting Awards 2014 judged by Tom Waits & Bernie Taupin. Nina Vox is an award winning songwriter and ex-actor, who performed with Russell Crowe and trained with Jazz legend Kerrie Biddell.
Tony has put aside songwriting to bring to the world “fishing for Music” which will be launched at Well Thumbed in Cobargo at 10:30am on Saturday 15th Sept. As you will discover in the book Tony has a lateral and feverishly enquiring mind. Jonathan Biggins writes of the book “Organically creative, the guitar grows out of his hands and the notes are harvested like so much sweet fruit - who better to write a book of delightfully quirky short stories about the weird and wonderful world of music than the quintessential muso’s musician?" Adding to that is - Paul Livingstone (AKA Flacco) who writes "Tony King employs words as one would musical notes in these finely honed mini-sagas. His modifiers don’t dangle, they jangle as his pen dances between descants of Keith Jarrett humming free jazz to aliens, to ageing retired rap artists complaining of“hip-hoperations”. A delightful collections of humoresque symphunnies from Mr King. These earworms for the eyes will stay with you long after the non-gender specific large-boned human sings. A major work in a minor font." For more information on to obtaining a copy visit https://www.beautifullymad.com/books
