My music career is not as hot as some of you out there. I grew up in a very musical family but I was not allowed to become a (Contemporary) My father thought that Frank Sinatra , Nat King Cole was it, with a few singers on the side like, Andy Williams,and maybe Paul Mccatrney. He did like the song Yesterday very much. We saw it together on the Ed Sullivan Show. I guess that ages me, but so what. Music is eternal, kids today are into Led Zeppelin, The Doors, Black Sabbath, and so many other bands from the 60's and 70's. I grew up in this era, and i can tell you there is never going to be anything like it. Every guitar riff that is in play today was arranged back then. Any way, I'm a singer song writer that wants to be in a working/writing band. I have CDs that you can have as samples of my work. Both covers and originals. I want to work and make money and also advance my song writing career. I don't like people with egos, I have enough to deal with my own. The flavor I'm seeking is Latin. Not all Latin but a undercurrent of a Latin percussion . An example of this would be Paul Simon's Late In The Evening. Santana's. My Guitar Gently Weeps. There are many more songs that can be arranged with the Latin undertone that I love so much. I sing Spanish songs like Besame Mucho which is a classic. I like the arrangement that was done for Andrea Bocelli. So I hope you have an idea of what I'm looking for. I hope to work with great people. Walk in peace always, Tony Santurio

From the time I could discern the difference between people talking and people singing I was hooked. There were two main influences that started it all. I went to see Elvis Presley at the movies. ( Love me tender) I heard him sing you ain't nothing but a hound dog and Bill Halley's Rock around the Clock. My father's Cuban love songs. The Beach Boys, The Belmonts. One of my first cover songs that I sang everywhere I went, The Wanderer. I loved the way that guy sang. The other was Under the Boardwalk by the Drifters. Motown was a tremendous influence on me when I was in the sixth grade. The Four Seasons was another group that influenced me tremendously. Oh man, there is just so much that I would drive myself nuts writing them all down. Elton John ,The Beatles The Rolling Stones, The Allman Brothers band, The Doobie Brothers, Csn, Jeff Beck, The Birds, The Yard Birds, Johnny Winter, Eric Clapton, Grand Funk , Chicago, Blood Sweat & Tears. You name a gorup, chances are I've heard it. I guess you could say that every song that was ever written had an influence on me. And I saw many of them on the rise, like Bruce Springteen, Led Zeppelin, Black Sabbath, all of them coming of age in the middle to late 60s. And now, many great artists, too many to list here.
