BIO


TONY DESMARTEAU...


Close your eyes and you won't believe your ears!
That can't be only one guitarist...well, it is!

Drawing upon influences of guitar greats such as CHET ATKINS,
DJANGO REINHARDT, BARNEY KESSEL, and LENNY BREAU (dozens of Lenny's
impromptu "lessons"!), and also the piano styles of ART TATUM,
ERROLL GARNER, and OSCAR PETERSON, Tony has developed a driving,
rhythmic, and melodic style, combined with a good helping of
improvisational flair, that will knock your socks off!

Not only a solo act, Tony has also worked with/for:

TRACY K GERALD LAROCHE LIANNE FOURNIER MARILYN LERNER JANE BUNNETT AUDIOMASTER JANICE FINLAY THE SWING CATS RICK GRATTON PAUL JANZEN CRAZY CORNERS RON PALEY STEFAN BAUER SWING PATAT MARIE-LYNN HAMMOND MAGGI MAY ROBINSON HUGO TORRES MARGARET SWEATMAN THE NATIONAL BALLET OF CANADA C.B.C.(RADIO and TELEVISION) THE NATIONAL FILM BOARD OF CANADA JAYLENE JOHNSON DANIEL KOULACK SID ROBINOVITCH KRIS PURDY ELI HERSCOVITCH SISTER DOROTHY RICHARD MOODY 4TH AVENUE THE WYRD SISTERS THE WELFARE STARLETS/STRANGE ANGELS M'SHUGGA!

Based in Toronto, Tony also teaches guitar/music. Players from as widely varying backgrounds as HEATHER BISHOP and KURT SCHEFTER (ALANNAH MYLES), search him out for insight and inspiration! He has also played across Canada through the ARTISTS IN THE SCHOOLS program with Gerald LaRoche.
