The Roots

Anthony Quinsee, better known as Tony Q  is a multi award winning songwriter. Tony was introduced to music at a young age with his mother being a piano teacher and his father an interstate truck driver, music was not in abundance in his household. Whilst music has always been his passion, at age 20 he made the choice to serve his country and enlisted into the Australian Army. After his return from Afghanistan in 2012 he used music to help deal with his struggles and soon released his debut album 'Road to Nowhere'. Not long after he teamed up with some more musicians and together formed The Tony Q band. After 13 years of service Tony decided that it was time to pursue his dreams and discharged the Army to become a full time musician. Tony still maintains a strong connection to the defence force and is involved with multiple veteran groups.
