While Tony is known as a soloist, his frequent collaborations with diverse musicians have always been a significant part of his work. He has recorded several albums for Greentrax.
Julia Toaspern is a multi-talented musician from Berlin who combines classical training on violin and voice with a wide interest in genres such as jazz, baroque and traditional music. She has released two albums of original songs and performed in both classical and singer-songwriter modes on both sides of the Atlantic. On top of all this her skills as a guitarist are prodigious and make an exciting fit with Tony’s work.
