“Whether funk, soul, groove, gospel, jazz or ballads, O’Malley has it all”
Blues & Soul Magazine
Tony O’Malley is unquestionably one of the most charismatic vocalists working in the UK. A featured performer since the late 60s, his CV is vast and includes stints with the iconic band 10CC and his own seminal Jazz/Funk band Kokomo. His brand of jazz-tinged contemporary soul and blues is really stunning, with his fabulous, smoky, velvety growl of a voice delivering original material and some covers in his inimitable style. With 11 CDs to his name, including his latest “Meteorite” released this summer, Tony has established himself as one of the most original and powerful performers on the scene today, with a fan base that reaches around the world. Not surprisingly his regular band features some of the finest groove musicians around including Tony’s latest recruits, the up-and-coming guitarist Richie Aikman, bass player Sonny Winslow and young drum talent Ally McDougal. If you like contemporary R&B vocals with a touch of Jazz in the Blues Brothers style, then this is definitely for you.
“...the velvet gravel throated O’Malley is one of the UK’s most undersung vocal performers...the songs drenched in the deep soulful spirit that characterises everything he touches…one of the UK’s hottest properties” Jazzwise; "O’Malley is all about pure groove, funky keyboard, growling vocals and soul to spare. Whether funk, soul, groove, gospel, jazz or ballads, O’Malley has it all" Blues & Soul Magazine
