Hamilton-born, London, ON-based university student TonyTone is out with his newest single, “Fade Away”.
The latest from 21-year old Hamilton-area hip hop / pop artist Anthony Marzanek follows suit for TonyTone’s vibe, delivering upbeat lounge beats and an ambient mood that nods to both hip hop and indie influences, while staying pop-centric at its core.
“‘Fade Away’ is a track I wrote, recorded, mixed and mastered myself,” he says. “It was not meant to fall into any sort of genre… I just play around with sounds and write until I come up with something I like.”
TonyTone’s knack for the craft is easily apparent in breakout singles “Shaded” (2018), “Losing Control” (2019) and “Two Roses” (2019). “I taught myself how to use recording software,” he recalls of his sleeves-rolled-up start. “Doing the production and mixing process makes me feel like I’m really in control during the creative process and final sound.”
