Tony Mortimer born 21st october 1970 in Stepney London is a former member of the boy band East 17, Tony wrote most and if not all of East 17s tracks, He was a singer, rapper, writer and composer, not only that he also choreographed most of the dance routines.
They had 7 UK top ten hits and one number 1 with 'Stay another day'. The band split in 1997, surprisingly it was tony that left the band after Brian Harvey rejoined the band after being fired for his comments on drugs.
After the break up Tony remained in the music industry as a record producer, a group he worked very closely with was a girl group by the name of Urban angel who's member's includered 'Roxanne Pallet'.
shortley After the break up of East 17 Tony suffered from eating disorders and agriphobia.
After 10 years of not having any contact with the former members of the band Tony organised a one night gig in Shepheads Bush in 2007. The night was a complete success and the news ratings were great, they was hoping to sighn a new contract and recindle the old sparks, but this was not meant to be.
Now in 2010 Tony-Terry and John are releasing a new album including a great track 'Hold on' unfortunatly i do not know the name of the album or group, could be east 17 or simply Tony Mortimer.
