North East-based Americana/Folk artist Tony Bengtsson’s hook-laden songs are "remarkable to say the least" (Maverick Magazine) and his voice has been described as "the best for country outside of America" (Dan Walsh - premier UK banjo player).

Tony started writing in 2004 after swapping his drumsticks for a guitar. His writing takes you on a journey through his diary, drawing on relationship experiences, the death of his father, and more recently his political activism in songs like ‘This Little Country’ and ‘Count Me In’. His debut solo album Snake in the Woodpile received 4-star reviews in Maverick and Rock and Reel magazines.

Whatever the theme, the ethos of authenticity remains. The honest heartfelt message can be heard in all of his songs.

‘This record should act as a benchmark for what this incredibly talented artist has to offer’ - Maverick

‘With the quality of stuff on [Snake in the Woodpile] it shouldn’t be long before he’s making a name for himself on the international stage’ - Rock ‘n’ Reel
