In the music industry, having a famous father can present many unique challenges for an up-and-coming artist. Living up to the reputation of a famous father and following in his footsteps can be quite demanding and difficult to achieve; unless of course you’re TONY VALOR. Tony is a Billboard charting artist with his hit singles, “To the Top”, “Your My Fantasy”, and “Up & Away.” Tony burst onto the music scene with all the energy of his youth. His love for singing began at the age of 3, and his interest in music grew while sitting under the console in his father’s music production studio. Armed with his rich family history in the music industry, Tony has made a name for himself on TVI Records. Of today’s artists, Tony listens the most to Usher and, like Usher, he desires to forge a career that straddles Dance, R&B, and Pop. Tony is a native New Yorker now living in Palm Beach, Florida. Being of Sicilian, Chinese and Hispanic descent, he has a unique multicultural background. Tony will be featured on That Summer, Volume 2 , a sizzling summer compilation album hosting the best independent artists, from around the world, in multiple genres.
What is the name of the song you have featured on ‘That Summer, Volume 2’ - How does your song remind you of summer or how does it fit into a summer album?
The name of the song is "Unexplainable". It's a ballad type song that has versatility and can fit in any season. I suppose anyone who has had a Summer Love can feel it.
What is the inspiration behind your song? Or what is your song about?
The song is about a feeling that can't be explained. It comes from many deep emotions whether it's love, happiness, sadness etc. It's quite hard to explain since of the song is called 'unexplainable'. But when you hear it, you'll know!
How did you write your featured song? Or can you describe your songwriting process?
It's a feeling that comes from within. It's really no 'how to manual' when it comes to the creative process. I just go by what I feel.
Of every song you have ever written, what is your favorite and why?
Can't pick a favorite to be quite honest. Every song has a different dimension and vibe in its own way.
Who or what has inspired you most in your music career?
My father introduced me to the industry and ever since then I've been making music non-stop for the last 10 Years.
Tell us where you live and what the music scene is like there?
I live in Fort Lauderdale Florida and it's quite a catch out here, especially since the summer is coming up! For the summer time south Florida is where it's at! From parties to events, carnivals, festivals and beyond. It's flooded out here in the music scene.
Do you have any advice for new independent artists who are just starting out?
Hard work beats talent!
What are your plans for the summer? Doing anything fun and exciting?
Gonna be putting out an album and a new music video!!
