About Tony Cuchetti

With roots in Detroit funk/soul Tony Cuchetti derives his spirit and creativity from an eclectic blend of musical genres. Compared to the likes of Johnny Cash, Waylon Jennings, Sturgill Simpson, Amos Lee, and Ray Lamontagne, Tony Cuchetti bleeds soul. Whether he is performing songs from his mentors, or his own original compositions, Tony leaves the listener with a deep sense of satisfaction for the power of simple yet provocative music.

Tony has spent his life in and around music. He was born the eighth child of ten siblings in a very musical family. His family even traveled the country for fifteen years performing as a musical family act. It was through all this that Tony gained his wide spectrum of musical tastes that would later help craft his own unique sound.

Tony has supported headlining acts Donna the Buffalo, Marshall Tucker, Little River Band, The B52's, Aby Wolf, and PaviElle French as well as being part of the MN Music Coalition and Caravan du Nord music series.
