UPCOMING SONG: ' Where Am I? ' The first sample of the song on YouTube

Hope everyone had a dope Midsummer! Flowerpower!



Here's the first sample of the upcoming song of mine called ' Where Am I? '

As you can hear, it's far from any of the songs I've previously released. 
It's more like sunshine pop/folk rock/indie with hints of reggae. A chill out tune for summer.

Hopefully you're gonna like it. 

A lonely rider is passing by, whistling on his way...

' U. ' is currently #1 on Metal Chart at IMP and #10 on All Genres Chart!

Thank you at IndieMusicPeople for listening to my song ' U. ' !

It reached #20 on Kayak Big 25 and is now #1 on Metal Chart and #10 on All Genres Chart.








They have 35274 songs on the chart.
It feels crazy that mine is tenth ( and yes I remember that ' Murdering Lights ' once was first and that was insanely awesome... And crazy! :D ). 


Last page of All Genres Chart. A lot of songs. 

Hopefully you've all had a nice summer so far!

Black Label & Darkeness Stations + Kayak Big 25 Chart ( ' U. ' )

Yeaaah, I'm happy Black Label Station added ' U. '

If you like alternative hard rock, heavy metal, trash metal, garage punk, grunge and so on you might like the bands on the station. Here's the link. 



' U. ' is currently #21 on Kayak Big 25 Chart.
It debuted #25, then went #23 and now up again.
Thank you for listening! :)

Here's the link to the show if you wanna listen to some new music.

Murdering Lights was added to a station called Darkeness.
There are genres like gothic hard rock, punk pop, electronic industrial, gothic trance, hard alternative and so on. Interesting! I'm already finding something new to listen and adding them on my station here: TonyGirl's Favorites.

Grunge is not dead! I loved this one a lot: ' Save Me ' by Meat Moldy. Sexy vocals. ;)

Lyric video for Whatever Happens now on YouTube!

I got this condition called " Bell's palsy " and my face is paralyzed at the moment. Let's hope I'm one of the 95% who will recover completely. I took some art pictures of this condition to empower myself and to celebrate May Day. After that I got an idea to add those pics to ' Whatever Happens ' lyrics video I made today for therapy: I really need to believe I will survive and my face will be normal soon! I was also a bit pissed off and felt a bit sarcastic when I edited the video. It helped! :D

Hopefully you had better MayDay celebration than I did! 

Well, here's the video. Hopefully you enjoy it:



I also posted to Instagram about this earlier. At first I was like I'm not gonna worry but now I'm a bit worried and tired about this. I need some peer support...Again.

Can't blame U. - The other side of the story behind the song

My new single called ' U. ' was released. Thank U all for listening to it! Here are the links to all the streaming/download sites I'm at in case U haven't and want to: MUSIC

It's a bitchy, sarcastic, angry song about an unhealthy relationship. It's an anger management tool.


" Metal for desperate housewives " but not to blame any gender. I've been twice in a relationship where I was told that if I'd leave the person would kill themselves. I'm pansexual so U can do the math... I've never been a part of the gang who wants to blame " the opposite sex ", whatever sex it is to U.
I've none: I consider my soul to be some sort of  genderfluid. I love my both parts equally.



Pretty as a bitch



It's also not a song to blame suicidal people. Those who are really depressed and want to die. I'd never mock them, never! It's just I don't like to be threatened and I don't appreciate suicide to be a way to blackmail someone to be with u. That's just a sick way to control and it's violence. I'm never going to tolerate that kind of bullshit anymore!

If U really want to kill yourself, U don't want to do harm to others, U just want to escape the suffering. That's completely a different story and has nothing to do with this song of mine.

I can't blame U. 


The other side of the story is: There's only one certain link between U and your sucky relationships.

And that's U.

Communication is always between more than just one person. A relationship is always between U and another person, not just the other person that U can blame if the whole thing sucks. U get to be angry, to write a song about that.

But U can't blame men. Or women. Or your EX for all the shit U had to go through.

At least I feel I can't. But oh dear how it felt good to do such an angry song about the matter!
It's always good to make something good about the bad. Hopefully the song is therapeutic to others as well.

I have this problem I have to manage in me:

I'm too nice to the point it's not nice anymore. People will control U, if U let them.
Whenever I'm in a relationship I tend to do too much. Give too much and  forget myself.
If my love says: " Please don't go to the gym, I want to hang out. ", there's a high risk I won't go.
If the one I'm with says: " I wanted to spend time today with U, can U please leave the computer...? "
there's a high risk I won't do my creative work.

And then I get frustrated, distant and nervous. My own life passes by and I feel like I'm trying but I never have time. I need a lot of space to do my thing.

I also take care about the person I'm with to the point it starts to be more like a mother-child relationship ( and I'm the mothering type ) than a healthy relationship between two adults.

So I'm also mocking myself with the " desperate housewives " pictures. I coukd sing " I CAN take it! " because I've been an annoying martyr taking shit from people. Then it gets worse and worse and all of the sudden I leave.

But I think I've learned the lesson! The song was mainly written a long time ago. At least I understand my part of the story and I control myself: I will rock no matter what and I won't stop to live for anyone. And that's the message I want to deliver: God gives us gifts and passions. It might not be art or music, it can be anything but it's U, the purest and most honest U. Never let anyone stop U to do your thing. Not for a relationship, not for anything. Be free to do stuff! The person who really loves U will never ever be in your way!

And never ask someone to give up on their dreams for U. That's crazy selfish!




One person asked me what I'm doing at the band practise. I sing and I write music. That's what I do! I also don't go to a recording studio to cheat...

Happy Valentine's Day!

I wished I could've released my upcoming song ' U. ' today as a Valentine's Day gift for U,  but it's not possible. If U wonder why I can release clips of the song but not the whole one: Well first of all, I still don't have the song in .wav and U must have it in that form to send it to Spotify etc. I've used the .mp3 version of the song for the sample videos. Aaand even if I'd get the .wav today, it takes for days or weeks after I've sent it via Music Kickup before it's published. I had another way in mind, but it's also a dead end at the moment so, we'll just have to keep on waiting! Let's not get desperate, haha.


 If U wanna help me to promote the upcoming song, please share one of the video's I've made with your friends. Maybe this one I made for Valentine's Day...?




I hope U have a nice Valentine's Day and if not, there's always TonyGirl and Bree Van De Kamp to cheer U up!

Kisses & hugs, lot's of loooove: TonyGirl

p.s: If U are a new listener, here are my 1st and 2nd singles for U  to listen. U can also find them at Spotify, Deezer, iTunes, Shazam, Google Play and IndieMusicPeople.com:

The wrap up of 2016 - My first full year active!

TonyGirl started releasing music in Halloween 2015, so the first full year active was the year 2016.
Let's have a look at it!




Murdering Lights: Underneath the fridge 




TonyGirl the chameleon started the year with androgynous style.  Depressed hiding under a bridge half naked and cold in Valentines Day 2016 when the photoshoot for the 2nd single ' Murdering Lights ' took place at wintery Korso. Click here to see more
Later that year I got a reason to really be depressed again...


Call the gender police, some people got confused!


Kaaoszine Magazine reviewed ' Murdering Lights ' 




On Feb 28th Kaaoszine reviewed ' Murdering Lights ' : " The intro of the song manages to sound a bit like 3 Doors Down song ' Here without you ' but then it changes to something completely different. It's a low tempo song about depression. The song opened up the second time I listened to it. It's not for everyone, but when it finds it's audience it will work for sure. ", wrote Sanna Uusi-Rasi. Big thanks to Kaaoszine. This started the year nicely!

Arvostelu suomeksi


Kiitos Kaaoszine hyvästä vuoden 2016 alusta


The Lady Voices Of Indie, Kayak Big 25 Chart and Golden Kayaks!



' Murdering Lights ' was released March 14th at Spotify, Deezer, iTunes etc. Eve Delvecchio found ' Murdering Lights ' from Facebook group that was one of the many SoundCloud artist groups I had linked stuff to ( can't remember which one of them ) and asked me to join IndieMusicPeople.com

So after thinking about it carefully I decided to live like I preach: " Whatever happens it's for the best.! " and uploaded both of my songs there.
At first and mostly ' Murdering Lights ' got all the attention there. It was the #1st on All Genres Chart and #1st on  Kayak Big 25 Chart and got nice reviews: " Wow this is like Nirvana and Smashing Pumpkins rolled into one. I could see this song as the backdrop of some film. I especially love the oohs at the end. There's nothing to criticize here, it was golden. ", wrote Bobby D.

" Epic in the true sense of the word. Sung with authority of Love but no harshness just pure power. Though depression is a hard topic, this song will get you through it. " - Heavy Rotation review

 Read those and more reviews here. 

The song was also chosen to be on ' Lady Voices of Indie ' compilation charity dmd cd to support Breast Cancer Research Foundation.

In September 14th 2016 also ' Whatever Happens ' rose to Kayak Big 25. What a nice surprise!
It climbed up to 2nd place and it's still on the chart after four months currently number #10.
I also got real excited when the song was 3# and Juliette Lewis had her song #1 that week.

Later in 2016, ' Murdering Lights ' was nominated at Golden Kayak Awards.

Thank you Eve, Scott and everyone else at IndieMusicPeople!
Without you, there wouldn't be much to write about the year ' 16. 

More about the awards

The Newswine article, Murdering Lights music video and the changes I had to make to my plans



The music video for ' Murdering Lights ' was released May 28th at YouTube. It got 2060 views in 2016. Let's make it at least 4000 this year, shall we...? Share the video with your friends at least once in 2017, please. ;) 



I also released the funny and weird Making of documentary. 

Matti Viikate wanted to interview me and sent the article to Newsvine. I talked about the song I was about to release later in the summer 2016. Thank you Matti for your support.

Then my long term friend and my love died in July.  It didn't feel good to release a reggae influnced smooth song about carefree living anymore. I've been really sad and tired ever since.

Also, I'm having his baby so I've been full of pregnancy hormones. Here's a photo of my pregnant shadow.

Like we all know 2016 took a lot of musicians.  He also was a musician, Intriga. He was doing a remix of ' Murdering Lights ' but didn't have the time. 
Here's his last released song ' Coolness Maximiser ' if you're into goa/psytrance. And here's a song from his another project called Dirty Device.  Memories. I wanted to link these here to give some respect to his work and for his memory I cherish in my heart.





So, back to business:  I didn't have another song recorded so I had to apologize I had already told I'm going to release a song but couldn't. Then I tried my best to get a new song out that year but failed. The Rock Above Studio I work at had a huge renovation and it delayed everything. I've learned: Never ever tell you're gonna release anything if you're unsure you can. I hope you forgive me: I've been in a shock in a new situation and trying my best.




Hurrying up with some new vocals. You can't really hurry art. 

Lazy ass musicians " working " ;) 


But all in all, I think 2016 was a good 1st whole year for TonyGirl*.

*TonyGirl the music project, not Tony the person who was sad, of course...


I want to thank all the listeners,  the followers at different social media platforms and all the people I worked with in 2016. Thanks for staying by my side! It means a lot! HUGE thanks! <3 


With love, TonyGirl the chameleon who magically changed from androgynous to a desperate housewife. There's a reason for the change but I'll tell U more about it later. ;) 


WHAT WILL HAPPEN NEXT? I LOOOOVE SURPRISES ( done by me at least )!
