Members: Tony Kellogg (guitar)
Origin: January 2009
A child of the 80′s, Tony Kellogg grew up listening to his parents music such as The Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, John Mellencamp, Neil Young, and The Beatles. Tony showed a talent for singing at a young age, and then hearing Stevie Ray Vaughan made him want to pick up a guitar. Tom Petty’s “Wildflowers” and Eric Clapton’s “Unplugged” albums pushed him to want an acoustic guitar, and by 1996 he was playing songs for friends at campfires. He started writing his own songs in 1999, developing through heavy influence from Oasis, Clapton and Robert Johnson; later, Dashboard Confessional and John Mayer.
In the 2000′s, Tony recorded four independent CD’s: “Coming Home”, “Kelso Drive”, “I’m Nobody Without Myself”, and “The Kitchen Sessions”, all to lots of high acclaim from friends and peers.
In January of 2009, he played his first gig at Clancy’s Pub. He became a regular at Docksider’s Wednesday Open Mic with Doug Phillips, and also played in Waterford at Creekside Tavern on Sunday Open Mics. A reputation for being a solid acoustic singer/songwriter followed, with showcase spots in the Pink Floyd tribute “Darkslider Of The Moon” on Halloween and Christmas. Occasionally he would play electric blues guitar with Rodger Montgomery Blues Band at their Open Jam on Thursday nights, but most folks now know Tony as an acoustic player.
in 2010, “Put Your Hands On Me”, an original, was featured on WXCS 92.9 FM’s 2010 Compilation CD and recieved heavy airplay on the Cambridge Springs/Edinboro area radio station. After taking the summer off from performing, he released a career retrospective of songs called “The Backward Mirror” in October.
Currently, Tony is playing throughout Erie and Crawford counties in support of his CD release.
