TONY MOMRELLE is one of the most exciting and significant Soul musicians on the modern British stage.
Tony started studying music when he was just eight years old and was lucky to grow up in the church learning to sing gospel. Tony started rapping at the age of thirteen and got into a hip-hop band. By the age of eighteen he started getting into professional singing and song writing, which also meant doing backing vocals for various artists and vocal producing.
All of these led Tony to tour with some of the greatest artists in the world such as Elton John, Gloria Estefan, Celine Dion, Janet Jackson, Sade, Gary Barlow, Andrea Bocelli, Gwen Stefani, Gabrielle, Robert Palmer, Beautiful South and, Gospel music group Seven….and on and on, with way too many to mention!
His success in the touring event seriously impressed Incognito’s frontman, Bluey Maunick, and he offered him the job as the lead male vocalist of the famous British Acid-jazz band with whom he has travelled the world gracing various stages for more than ten years!.
Before his stint in Incognito, Tony was already an accomplished solo recording artist who had released two studio albums under his own name. Music critics such as John Rockwell and Paul Morley consider Tony the new Stevie Wonder of the 21st century because of his similarity to the music legend’s vocal vibe.
Whilst on tour with Incognito in Japan, Tony got a surprise phone call from Stevie Wonder, who said he loved his voice and was a fan of the band.
Throughout the years Tony has contributed to many albums including, Sade’s Lovers Live and Soldier of Love; Incognito’s Life Stranger Than Fiction, Eleven, Who Needs Love, Bees+Things+Flowers, Adventures in Black Sunshine, Tales From The Beach and Transatlantic RPM; Terry Calliers Speak Your Peace and Total Recall; Aaron Carters Most Requested Hits and Another Earthquake; Ski Okenfalls Rising Sun and many more!
Momrelle has been busy over the past two years touring the world for Sade, supporting Incognito and driving momentum with Reel People, fronting the band everywhere from Europe to Japan.
