Terry Demol and Tony Gribble are singer songwriters that have collaborated over the past 40 years.

They both grew up in Oyster Bay and enjoyed the influences of bands like the Doobie Brothers, Beatles and just about every guitarist on the planet from Django Reinhardt to Tommy Emmanuel.

Terry has been in several bands including Harvey Warbangers but his focus now is on songwriting and recording original material and a new album is in the works.

Tony has recently completed a solo album, Strings Attached, and is currently recording a selection of songs with Terry. These original songs have been produced over the last 10 years and provide a narrative of experiences during that time.

Tony also performs at music therapy sessions for senior groups and has the opportunity to share the wonder and enjoyment of music and song.

Tez 'n' Tone will appear at Gymea Tradies on Thursday, July 11, at 7.30pm as guests of the Sutherland Acoustic Club.
