MUSIC

I am a songwriter. My songs have been recorded by too many to mention here. Many of the stars of South African music, many of our budding stars, and many by independent artists who enlist my help.

I have been singing with ROCKING HORSE for 30 years now. We like to call ourselves a ‘league of extraordinary gentlemen.’ We breathe our music.

As a solo artist, my recordings are few, rare almost. I have, for the most part, preferred singing in the band to the pursuit of a solo singing career.

In 2015 I released an experimental album, a mix of poetry and song, called HEART TATTOO on i-tunes, cd baby & spotify. Links to listen to and download/purchase this album are in SHOP, on this site.

I will be releasing a Country solo album in 2016 and the 30th Anniversary ROCKING HORSE album is also due out in 2016.

 


BOOKS

My first poetry collection was published as long ago as 1986 (UpStream Publishers).

In 2008 my book of short stories and short prose, “The Disenfranchised Goldfish” was published (Griffel Publishers). Shortly to print will be my new poetry collection, “My Write Hand” (T.B.A.) – pre-orders for this book can be made at: info@tonyr.co.za

I am currently working on a novel which I hope to complete and have published by the 2nd half of 2016.
I freelance as a music and lit journalist and critic occasionally – contact me via this site if you’d like me to write something for you…
