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 contend with; unless of course you’re TONY VALOR.
Tony has burst onto the music scene with all the energy of his youth; and armed with his rich family history in the music industry, is making a “name” for himself as a singer, songwriter, and producer. 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.
He is bilingual and has spent much of his life in his hometown of Guangzhou, China, which he visits on a regular basis..
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 studio, as he worked on his music productions. Tony has taken his exposure to music, and love for singing, and developed it into a serious desire to pursue a career in music with the release of his first single “Can’t Be Without You”. His second single “You’re My Fantasy” premiered on Vevo and has over 3,000,000 views between TVI Youtube Channel and Vevo.
Tony Valor’s third single “Up & Away” is currently #25 on Billboard’s Dance Chart.. His previous single “To The Top” was the first in his career to chart on Billboard’s Dance Chart at #21, and his sophomore release “You’re my Fantasy” got the attention of Billboard Reporters and resulted in Tony charting once again on Billboard’s Dance Chart at #24. With three consecutive releases charting on the Billboard Dance Charts, Tony is carving out a successful career, and is looking forward to producing and performing many more hits.
He grew up listening to a cornucopia of music styles and was particularly into Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, The Ink Spots, Benny Goodman, and, of course, Disco and R&B. Of today’s artists, Tony listens the most to Usher, and like Usher, desires to forge a career that straddles the border between Dance, R&B and Pop.
