The OFFICIAL Website of Rap or Die
In the music industry, having a famous father can present many unique challenges for an up and coming artist. Living up to the reputation of a famous father and following in his footsteps can be quite demanding and difficult to contend with; unless of course you’re TONY VALOR.
Tony has burst onto the music scene with all the energy of his youth. Armed with his rich family history in the music industry, Tony is making a “name” for himself as a singer, songwriter, and producer. Tony is a native New Yorker now living in Palm Beach, Florida. Being of Sicilian, Chinese and Hispanic descent he has a unique multicultural background.
He grew up listening to a cornucopia of music styles and was particularly into Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin, The Ink Spots, Benny Goodman, and, of course, Disco and R&B. Of today’s artists, Tony listens the most to Usher, and like Usher, desires to forge a career that straddles the border between Dance, R&B, and Pop. His love for singing began at the age of 3, and his interest in music grew while sitting under the console in his father’s studio as he worked on his music productions. Tony has taken his exposure to music, and love for singing, and developed it into a serious career in music.
