About Tony Poirier

Tony Poirier is a 30 year veteran from Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. Singer/songwriter, and considered one of the top ten Pub acts/One man Bands in Western Canada.
Recording from his own basement studio, Tony creates his own back-up bands to use on stage to fill the room with energy. From as old as Buddy Holly to as recent as Nickleback, Tony plays a wide variety of rock, classic rock, country, pop, metal, and yes, even old Irish drinking songs.
Tony did his first professional recording at age 14, when he recorded his original 14 minute song "The Ring" based on the Lord of the Rings trilogy. Other original recordings have seen radio airplay in both Canada and New Zealand. Notably, the songs "Land of Shadow", "Knife in the Dark" and "Alexis."
Surprisingly, Tony Poirier has never been signed to a recording contract nor has been picked up by a major label. Given his talent both on and off stage, his peers and fans have found this fact rather shocking. But Edmonton, Alberta is a rather limited city from which to springboard into mainstream music.
Born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada Nov. 6, 1964. Tony first began playing guitar at age 8, and started writing his own music by age 11. At age 14, he formed his first band "Missing Link" which played at schools throughout the Edmonton region. Impressed with his writing skills, he was sponsored to record his music at Homestead music studios in 1980. Produced by Larry Wanagas (link) He recorded 4 songs. "Death." "Hey Mon." "I'll Be Gone" and his 14 minute original classic "The Ring." Although impressed, Ted Kennedy at K-97 did not pick up his contract. A few years later, in 1986, Tony was asked to record 7 more original songs for K-lite radio for a segment called "Up and coming" which featured such songs as "I'll Be Gone." "Never were my Friend." "Fly Away." and "Friends." 3 other songs "Knife in the Dark." "Land of Shadow" and "Alexis." recieved additional radio airplay in New Zealand (Pegasus Productions) in 1989.

Hey everyone. Sorry for the delay in between messages.
Things are still really deep with the newest (But longest) project I've ever worked on, but in the meantime...
My duo partner and I were fooling around with some lyrics one afternoon, and lo and behold...
a Comedy song was born, practiced, rewritten, and perfected.
Really hope you laugh as much as we did when we were putting it together. Enjoy

All the best,
Tony Poirier

Hey everyone,

I've done a little something different these past few months. A friend of mine wanted to know if I could do a classic remake of a song from scratch.
What happened a few months later, is a new version of "Bad Moon Rising." I didn't even seek out the lyrics, it just seemed to fit the best to the new song pattern I had mixing around in my head.
So, enjoy the new, revamped, and kinda funky, version of Bad Moon Rising. Would love to hear your input on it as well.

Thanks a ton everyone,
Tony Poirier

Hello to all my fans out there.
It's been a long road, and a hard road, to get things up and running again in "Dungeon Studios." But now that everything is finally set up and life has stopped throwing me curveballs like these past 2 years. I can get back to what I enjoy. And that's creating and sending out the music that you all remember and loved.
The latest creation was originally written in 1985, and completely reproduced this past month. What's even better, is that a new project (Huge undertaking) should be out before Christmas, along the "Lord of the Rings" and "Skyrim" theme, which should be my best project EVER. Look for it, as I can't write again until the 21st of December.
Thanks for being patient, and enjoy "Lana" as much as I enjoyed putting it together for you.
All the best,
Tony Poirier

Hey everyone,

Sorry I haven't been around lately, especially to answer all the great mail that I've been getting. But I've been distracted with a lot of different things hitting me from a lot of different angles.
First, the good news.
Tony Poirier has finally made a performance video for all of you to see. I look a bit old and scruffy in it (I was just recently diagnosed with Diabetes, and my eyesight went to shit for awhile here. Also wasn't feeling all that up to snuff.)
But I knew you guys wanted to see a concert video.
It isn't great, but I finally did it. Here's the link
YouTube

Now, the bad news.
Due to financial difficulties right now, I won't be able to renew my Diamond subscription to N1M for a while (That really sucks) So I'll be offline for a month or two until I can rebound from all the little tiny disasters that have happened in the past year. Don't worry, I'll be back. And I have two more songs in post-production almost ready to share with you as well. Stay tuned :)

All my love,
Tony Poirier
