Tony's new album, Siren Songs, will be available October 23, 2012


"siren song


n.
An enticing plea or appeal, especially one that is deceptively alluring and potentially dangerous."

"Siren, in Greek mythology
Siren (sī`rən), in Greek mythology, one of three sea nymphs, usually represented with the head of a woman and the body of a bird. The Sirens inhabited an island surrounded by dangerous rocks. They sang so enchantingly that all who heard were drawn near and shipwrecked. Jason and the Argonauts were saved from them by the music of Orpheus, whose songs were lovelier. Odysseus escaped them by having himself tied securely to a mast and by stopping the ears of his men."

Press release:
Key West Songwriter, Tony Roberts, answers the Siren's call on new album

Key West singer/songwriter, Tony Roberts, announces the release of his latest album, Siren Songs, on October 23. The collection of 14 songs were written in Key West, Barbados and Costa Rica and come from a two year span of loving, living, wandering, surfing, heartbreak and healing. Tapping into his passion for surfing and the ocean, Roberts' acoustic guitar driven beach songs and yearning lyrical love songs have found a world wide audience over the past few years, especially in the surf culture and lifestyle, through commercials and movies using his songs in Europe, Brazil and Japan. Rip Curl used Roberts' "Let's get a wave" (from his Long Lost Ocean Blues cd) in a recent promo vid for their bikinis and Tribu flip flops has also used the song in an ad campaign. Meanwile, Meyerhoffer Surfboards just recently used the lone instrumental track on the Siren Songs album, Pura Vida, in it's latest commercial for their "Tippin Point" design surfboard.

The album features vocals from Samantha Waite (one of which she cowrote and sings lead vocal on) and keyboards from Michael Jude Ward-Bergeman and Steve Panariello (Digital Island Media) on percussion on one track as well.

The graphics for the album feature photographs from Italian surf photographer, Davide Terrusi and sketches drawn by Tony.

Recorded in Roberts apartment in Key West, FL. the songs are simple, melodic and lyrical... following the journey of a relationship from beginning to end and whatever happens after...

The album will be available on iTunes world wide on October 23, 2012 and available for sale in Key West at Roberts shows starting in November with performances scheduled at The Sunset Tiki Bar at the Galleon, Island Dogs Bar and The Rum Barrel.

Welcome to Today Press Release:

In 2010, Key West, FL based singer-songwriter, Tony Roberts, set sail on a soul-searching journey to Barbados, West Indies, and out of this voyage, "Welcome to Today" was born. This collection of original songs intrinsically represents the love and chaos that exist within the beauty of the islands and how surfing, friendship and music can clear a path to hope.

Upon his return home, while recording the full-length album in his Key West studio, Roberts discovered that the film footage he recorded in Barbados was the perfect backdrop to illustrate the soulful soundtrack that is "Welcome to Today." Weaving together the music and film created a complex emotional tapestry that could not have been achieved separately.

The premiere of the hour-long film is set for July 29 and 30 at the Florida Keys Eco-Discovery Center at 8pm both nights. Tickets are $22.50 and include a copy of the "Welcome to Today" DVD/CD. An after-party will be held on July 30 at 10pm at Island Dogs at 505 Front Street with a live performance by Roberts and his longtime collaborator, Samantha Waite.

Forty percent of all profits from sales of "Welcome to Today" will go to The American Cancer Society, The Lupus Foundation of America, The Bahama Village Music Program and The Welcome to Today Fund (a fund set up by Roberts to support various charities and surf organizations in Barbados). The DVD/CD combo will be available for purchase at Roberts' live shows, online at www.welcometotodayfilm.org or www.tonyrobertsmusic.com and at retail stores throughout the Florida Keys and at surf shops in the United States and Barbados. Ultimately, with distribution in the US and hopefully worldwide, Roberts hopes to keep this as a continued source of funding for these charities and similar artistic projects in the future.

This video was shot and edited by Nick Welch in November of 2010. The song is called "I'll sleep when I'm dead" from Tony's "The Long Lost Ocean Blues" album and features the amazing slide guitar work of Martin Harley...

Tony and Martin Harley (from the UK) both played the Surfer's Bay Music Festival in Barbados in Nov 2011 and met while surfing at Surfer's Point. The two ended up putting on an impromptu concert for everyone staying at there.

Nick Welch (a producer for the BBC in the UK) and Tony are both currently working on videos inspired by their time in Barbados and at Surfer's Point... this is part of Nick's footage.

In 2009 the New York Yankees used Tony's song Rise as a theme for their Hope Week initiative. It was truly an honor to have Rise associated with the people in these videos and their inspiration! These segments I'm posting up were run on the Yankees on demand channel.
Recently the folks from Yankees sent me a dvd with all the segments and were nice enough to let me post them up... I wanted to share these stories with my friends and fans... please take some time and check them out when you have a chance:)
