Tony the Bookie Orchestra

Raw and revelatory country rock in the vein of Hank Sr., George Jones and Steppenwolf, the Tony the Bookie Orchestra mines the same territory of traditional American music forged with Rock and Roll as The Band, Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, and Fleetwood Mac. The music is dark, authentic and modern, often as loud and fast as a steam train, yet usually plaintive and lonesome—and always tied deeply to the traditions of American songwriting.
