Response from Tony Lundervold:
Thank you so much Capri, I had a great time and hope to work with you all again in the future...... preferably when I'm a little more healthy next time. :)
We were thrilled with Tony's performance at our event. Great sound and definitely would recommend him to anyone.
I can't begin to say how thrilled I was with my "Singing Cowboy" I didn't just want western music at my event. I wanted the real deal. I wanted a singing cowboy and I got one. Tony showed up even earlier than needed just to make sure things were set up and ready. He was dressed to the nines in his beautifully appointed cowboy gear...again the real deal....not a costume. He is a handsome, polite, and engaging young man. His music for our event was just right. A mix of old favorites and some lovely songs he has written himself. His voice and guitar are gentle and sweet but still energetic. He was the perfect pick for my event and I will absolutely hire him again. He is a professional in all aspects. Misty-Events Coordinator
Tony Lundervold performed the perfect show for our last music in the park summer event.
Tony set up and had a wonderful table display where attendees could learn more about him. His performance was charming and engaged the crowd while sharing about his life through his music and in between songs. He was very gracious when an attendee was inspired to step up behind the microphone and sing along.
I would joyfully recommend Tony for any music event big or small.
What to Expect
Tony has played many gigs as a solo artist and has had a very positive response from his fans. His solo gigs are not only very entertaining but also provide a great option for venues who may not have the budget for a full band. If you desire a band Tony has multiple musicians he works with whom are extremely talented that will be available at a moments notice for events that would prefer the full band experience (Band size depends on venue needs, please specify.) Available band members include steel guitar, electric guitar, bass guitar, rhythm guitar, and drums. Tony performs hits off of his debut album "From the Ranch to the Rodeo" which was nominated by the Academy of Western Artists for the 2015 Western Album of the Year. In addition to some originals, Tony plays many classic country and western covers by Merle Haggard, Chirs LeDoux, Johnny Cash, George Strait, Willie Nelson, Randy Travis, and many more. Tony as a solo artist or with the band are both great options and one you definitely want to add to your venues entertainment.
Tony Lundervold has always had a passion for two things in his life, rodeo and music. For 13 years, rodeo took up most of Tony's time and focus. Many years of determination paid off when he was crowned the 2009 Northwest Professional Rodeo Association's Saddle Bronc Riding Champion. Unfortunately, the following year he suffered a severe broken neck and was forced to retire from the sport. For the next couple of years Tony toyed with the idea of competing again but decided it was time to put all of his focus on his music and try to achieve his musical goals. Although Tony has put competition in his past, rodeo still plays a large role in the songs he writes and sings.
Coming from a musical family, Tony has always had a love for music. His dad played a large role in the styles of music Tony enjoys such as country, western, yodeling, oldies, gospel, and even a little Hawaiian music. He grew up singing in the church choir with his entire family. In his late teens Tony's mom gave him his first guitar, one she had herself many years prior. From that moment on he knew music would always be a large part of his life.
In 2007 Tony married Richelle and welcomed two daughters into his life, Kelli, and Brenna. Three years later in 2010, Tony and Richelle had Bailey Rae. The family now resides on a nice piece of land in Sublimity, OR.
Tony has put all the dedication and determination, that he learned from years of rodeo, into his music and more specifically into his first album. "From the Ranch to the Rodeo." This debut album was recorded at Arctic Sound Studios in Columbia, TN just outside of Nashville and released on January 13th, 2015. Since that time the album has had significant airplay from radio stations all across the world and received many positive reviews. More recently Tony's debut album was nominated for the 2015 Academy of Western Artists Western Album of the Year.
