Tony Momrelle is one of the UK's most significant and exciting soulful singer-songwriters, you many know him as one of the incredible singers from Incognito.


He started out as a session singer for Gloria Estefan and never looked back. Momrelle is an effortlessly talented artist with a family upbringing steeped in music and entertainment. He started studying music from the age of just 8 and would embrace gospel through regular church attendance. At 13, he'd switch to "part-time' rapping with a local hip-hop group and then five years' later, in 1991, would fatefully meet Estefan.


Since then he's been touring with the biggest and best. His association with Estefan has been rather impressively followed by work for Whitney Houston, Sir Elton John, Take That and most recently Sade. He's also recorded with urban gospel group Seven, and released two artist albums – the first, Freetime, appeared on Art & Soul in 1999; the second, Message In The Music, arrived 10 years later.


All of this, however, is to forget Momrelle's long and fruitful association with those bastions of live soulful groove, Incognito. His consistently tip-top vocals on the road impressed Incognito main man Jean-Paul ‘Bluey' Maunick to the extent of offering him a spot on both the band's 2002 album Life Stranger Than Fiction and their relentless international tour dates.


Momrelle has been busy over the past two years touring the world for Sade, supporting Incognito and driving momentum with Reel People, fronting the band everywhere from Europe to Japan. But now he's ready to focus fully on himself.
