Tony Portlock and Matt Thorpe

An alchemy of diverse but complimentary guitar styles and musical influences, carefully blended and played from the heart.


For both guitarists the road has been a long one and as a result you can be assurred that they bring a wealth of musical talent and experience to each performance.  

Tony Portlock and Matt Thorpe first met mid-2009 when they were introduced by Nick Thompson who had been playing bass with Tony. Later that year Matt joined Tony's TNT project, a new band. TNT is an acoustic four piece band which includes Tony Barrett - Vocal,Guitar and Nick Thompson - Double Bass and of course Tony and Matt.  TNT have played gigs and festivals across the West Midlands, to much acclaim.

Matt recently recorded and produced Tony Portlock's latest CD release 'End of The Day' and played on 5 of the 18 tracks. The CD became available June 2010.
