Brooklyn born singer/songwriter, 19 year old, Tony Collins delivers something you can feel. The contemporary R&B crooner skillfully meshes classic soul with a younger new school zest, creating a refreshing urban sound that has a timeless feel, that's sure to outshine the freshman class of his generation.

Always an enthusiast of music since his humble beginning, Collins first began penning his own songs as early as the age of 12. His dreams of superstardom were supported and primarily inspired by his mother, a gifted vocalist herself and a teenage mom whose career was diverted by Tony's birth. That made his intention even more compelling, and through the watchful eye of his uncles(COA entertainment) the seeds were planted over the years (which included guest appearances on several mixtapes from local MCs) eventually blossomed into a promising profession; inevitability catching the ear of the Blackwell recording imprint, where he inked a production deal during late summer 2009.

While composing tracks for his forthcoming debut, one of his songs, the syrupy and synth heavy "Fall In Love" (produced by frequent collaborator CaneILive) accidentally leaked onto the blogosphere yet quickly tallied an impressive 60,000 + hits within a three week span. With no other outlet of promotions outside the word of mouth buzz and the viral infection caused by pre-existing social networks, the Tony Collins brand of music began to build the anticipation of being the next big thing.

Continuing to test the market, other songs making their way to the internet soon after included the charmingly seductive "Get Into You" and the Dre Knight produced club worthy "Whine For Me," solidified the singer as a serious crossover contender in the 2010 new year.

Between a string of live dates, Collins is hard at work on his yet to be titled debut album due in 2010. Slated to include gems spanning from the urban, pop, and r&b/soul realms; the heartthrob is patiently building a versatile body of work that's sure to win the favor of new audiences once it hits the market. He's a talented vocalist that embodies the new cool, and with his eyes set on the charts and the hearts of those he's touching musically, you can rest assured that Tony Collins is set for a promising career.

    Wow awesome photos, great work all around! Your song Get Into You is excellent, I'm enjoying it a lot even though I'm not usually a fan of this kind of music.
