ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Power pop fans rejoice... Tony Cox is back with a new collection of perfect formed pop songs that could have been written by Lennon & McCartney, Brian Wilson or Neil Finn.

Tony records his songs at the famous Hijack Studios in England and he plays guitars and keyboards. He is joined on the recordings by his friends Nigel Clark (himself the lead singer with classic Brit-pop band Dodgy) on vocals, keyboards & bass and Darren Finlan on drums & percussion. Nigel’s pitch-perfect lead vocals and gorgeous harmonies will send a shiver down your spine.

With 'On The Way' Tony has managed to improve on his own brand of pop perfection that was showcased on 'Unpublished' with a sensational collection of new tunes including 'Hold Me Angeline', 'No More Lies' and 'Alicia'.

Selected praise for Tony's debut album 'Unpublished':

"From the start songwriter Tony Cox has given us one of the most consistent and listenable pop records of the last ten years, maybe one of the top ten albums of this decade.

With the help of Nigel Clark and Darren Finlan, Tony has presented us with some of the most perfect pop songs I have heard in a long time. Intense layers of guitar tracks provided by Tony and brilliant vocals of Nigel Clark provide a Sunshine Pop meets modern inspiration sound that will not be disappoint."

- PowerPop Overdose

These eleven songs represent some of the best British pop songwriting I’ve had the pleasure to listen to. It’s almost as if you’ve stumbled on a classic pop-rock jukebox in some alternative reality where hit songs like 'Sweet Elaine', 'Jamelia', 'Welcome To My World' and 'Show Me Your Love' rule the world. Step aside, Noel Gallagher, the jig is up. Let Tony Cox show you what quality songwriting is all about.

- Powerofpop.com

Cox has managed to find himself some amazing partners to showcase his flawless tunes and entrust them with delivering his amazing music. Tony Cox’s fluid sound almost makes you wonder why someone with this much talent has managed to stay under the radar.

- Earvolution

Tony Cox has put together an 11 track debut full of sweet surprises. Fans of classical power pop influences (Beatles, Beach Boys, Byrds) will find a goldmine of melodic pop here. Tony is not signed to any label, but shows you the wealth of riches some record companies need to pay attention to.

- Powerpopaholic

Unpublished is his debut album, and thankfully for us he actually did publish it. Tony Cox has the Carnaby Street Album of 2009 on his hands. He may be retro, but he has the tunes.

- Absolute Power Pop

Tony Cox is like a musical Dr. Frankenstein. He got his masters degree in 60's Sunshine Pop, with a minor in modern stylings. On his debut album "Unpublished", the harmonies are vintage, the hooks are aplenty, and the performances are spot on.

Hailing from the UK, the sound represented here is inspired by both sides of the pond. You would almost swear this were a collaboration between Brian Wilson and John Lennon. But where others have failed in recreating that glorious sound, Tony Cox succeeds in updating it for the kids of today. I'm certain that "Fallen" is a lost Beatles recording. Tony has raided the Lennon family vaults and stolen an undiscovered demo. Although the previous statement in completely false, it's hard to imagine another explanation. It's soaring melody and jangly guitars are unmistakably "fab". "Sacred Woman" is similarly steeped in British Invasion territory. The harmonies and lyrical content displayed on this track would bring The Zombies back from the dead. The same can be said for the majority of the tunes found on this sparkly disc.

It is refreshing to be able to listen to an album made in 2009 that marries itself so lovingly with 60's Power Pop.

The Shins may have got the ball rolling, but if god is willing and the sea don't rise, Tony Cox will find his place in the Power Pop spotlight.

- Modern Power Pop

This is totally radio-friendly pop. It’s like having your own pop juke box, bursting with the quality and the phenomenal strength of these 11 songs. This album is like a jewel box crowded with so many pop gems.

We expect Tony to become a major international songwriter of the future. We’ve certainly got no complaints! Be in no doubt, this release is one of the best albums of the year. It’s a monster!

- Groovy Place (Japan)

Tony Cox. THE Top Newcomer of the Year. This man is pure pop! Say 'hello' Beatles.

Incredible - Fantastic Power Pop
Can music this good be ignored? Of course it can, but there are absolutely stunning songs by Tony Cox here - "Feel the Ride," "Curse of Love," "No More Lies " - played expertly and sung by one of power pop's resident greats, Nigel from the criminally under-rated band Dodgy.
These songs are lodged so deep in my brain that they are now a part of my psyche.
The earlier work by Tony Cox seems nowhere near this level of melody and tunesmanship.

A must for all melody lovers
Less immediate, more eclectic and shorter than Tony Cox's superb debut, 'Unpublished', 'On the Way' requires a couple of listens to sink in. Then, one is struck by the sheer originality and personality of this British songwriter. There is nothing formulaic or derivative at all in his approach to pop music which is ultra personal and thoroughly modern.
