Anthonie Tonnon

New Zealand songwriter Anthonie Tonnon is releasing his new album, Successor in Australia, after charming crowds as the support for Darren Hanlon's Christmas tour of Australia last year.

Tonnon's documentary-like narratives take influence from songwriters like Lou Reed and John Darnielle of The Mountain Goats, and his unusual music has been compared to Jens Lekman and David Bowie. Tonnon's arresting, theatrical one-man show has seen him open for Okkervil River, Paul Kelly and alt-folk heroes Beirut in New Zealand.

Successor has had five-star reviews in New Zealand, and Tonnon was recently named a "New Zealand act you need to know about" by
