Tony Grey

In this episode of The Creative Life Podcast I talk creativity with British born multi-instrumentalist, composer and record producer Tony and discuss how to be a self-sufficient creative professional. Tony shares his inspiring story of how nearly dying in a car accident made him pick up the bass guitar and within 12 months landing a place at one of the world’s top music colleges.
