Based in Ontario, Canada, Anthony Tullo is a country-rock singer-songwriter who is looking to take on the UK music industry with new single ‘Borderline’. It’s a very promising year for an artist whose old school style has been compared to the classic likes of Bruce Springsteen, John Melencamp, Bob Segar, Bryan Adams and others, but with an decidedly contemporary edge. Riding the current worldwide wave of roots, country and folk music, Anthony Tullo is an artist who is here to stay.
Revered by critics, radio and writers in his native Canada, and also invited to play some of the country’s most prestigious venues, Anthony Tullo’s reputation is already cemented and still growing on the other side of the Atlantic.
His first chance to break into the industry saw Anthony catch the eye of a notoriously difficult to please A&R at Warners over a decade ago, but his progress was halted by the tragic events of Sepember 11th, 2001 in New York. Following that day, the promising start to his career was halted by a label who (understandably) had other priorities, leading to Anthony Tullo leaving the industry for a time.
But now he’s back, a self-made musician with a point to prove. And if anyone disagrees with him, they should probably know one more thing – he funds his music career by competing and training others in the arts of Brazilian Ju-Jitsu and Mixed Martial Arts.
