Tony Saunders’ life story could be the script to a hit movie. Son of legendary keyboardist and composer Merl Saunders, Tony’s life has been a musical adventure. As a child, he was taught piano by Herbie Hancock and for his tenth birthday, he received an electric organ as a gift from Sly Stone. Growing up around his dad and the Fantasy Records family of artists he was constantly surrounded by music royalty, including famed record and film executive Saul Zaentz. His passion for the bass guitar began while sitting in on recording sessions with musicians Anthony Davis, who played with Walter Hawkins, and Lee Miles of Miles Davis fame.  Tony’s musical journey has continued on from that era through to the present.  He has played and recorded with an astonishing list of great musical talents including Eric Clapton, David Crosby, Jo Sample, Chaka Khan, Ringo Star, bo Diddley, The Hawkins Family and many others. Tony has played on hundreds of albums, won two Emmy Awards for soundtracks and has written award winning commercial jingles and movie scores.
