Tony is a British-Nigerian electronic music producer and songwriter from London.Raised in between Lagos and London the twenty-three year old has always been a frequent globetrotter with the breadth of his travels reflected in his music. His self-penned and produced songs have been described as 'strikingly evocative soundscapes,managing to make even the shortest pop songs sound like epic adventures.
Njoku released the first single from Sketches & Noodles of Bloom, called “Lost Forever.” and has seen radio plays from the likes of Jamz Supernova, Mary Anne Hobbs and Cerys Matthews. In an interview on Jack Saunders’ BBC Radio 1 show, revered pop artist Caroline Polachek said “When I hear his music I see jewel tones like rich magentas, teals and fourth screens [they] take me into this really dreamy place”
“Exciting blends of African percussion, falsetto croons and dark synths” (FACT)
“A world of swirling synths that float on top of Njoku’s buried but distinctive vocals” (DIY)
“Fusing abstract beats with his angelic tones” (MOJO)
“Tony Njoku makes nice swirly sounds” (I-D)
“Tony Njoku creates resplendent sonic landscapes that serve as the basis for his insightful and poignant lyricisms” (The Line Of Best Fit)
“The Deptford musician likes to pull down the barriers, with his expansive electronics flirting with psych and soul” (Clash)
Teaming up with TONIC
Delivering good mental health and recovery through music
Tonic was founded in 2012 as a direct response to the lack of creative support for people experiencing mental health difficulties. It was founded upon the belief that participation in music and the arts can aid you in your recovery from mental illness.
From our early events promoting mental health awareness, we now champion mental health action. By providing opportunities for people to participate in music and the arts, we directly support them on their journeys of recovery.
Our Tonic Rider programme promotes good mental health in the music industry. Tonic Rider provides free training and support to music industry professionals, both remotely and at venues.
As the Tonic community keeps growing, we will continue providing creative mental health support to promote Recovery Through Music, while promoting good mental health in the music industry through the Tonic Rider programme.
