West coast music artist…

Tony Sciuto was one of the most successful AOR artists selling an album in Japan at the opening year of 80’s and that on the FM radio, Japanese boys and girls could listen to his smash hit “Island Nights” many times every day. After selling quite a large number of “Island Nights” LP copies in Japan, Tony did Japanese tour which was very successful too.

Unfortunately, Tony’s “Island Nights” did not sell well in the States and as the result, neither his 2nd album “Be My Radio” which was ready to go nor his live-recordings of Japanese tour had been released by 1999.

In 1999 TonySciuto himself made it possible to listen to this masterpiece album “Island Nights” as the 20th Anniversary Limited Edition CD with 4 bonus tracks <2 live recordings and 2 unreleased tunes> was released on his own label, and at the same time Cool Sound in Japan released his 2nd album “Be My Radio”.

In 2004 Cool Sound has released 2 new albums “Diamond In The Rough” & “Live In Japan” with Tony Sciuto.
