Tonino Spence is 26 years old from Brisbane. He started playing music when he was 15 years old and still finds his passion for song writing never dies. In 2011 his hopes were to record his first solo album that tell the story of life in Brisbane from the perspective of the streets. "I was living day to day in desperate search for new music, new lyrics and some place to survive" Half way through 2006 he was in bands such as 'Beat the Streets', 'Red cross M.C.'s' and 'TC and the Lightning Strikerz'. TC has been a nickname since he was only 17 years old and is acquired from a popular cartoon called Top cat. He's known for caring about his music, his family and the ladies. "It all started when I was a little boy sitting watching my Dad play the drums like the professional he is. I knew I'd turn down a path like the music industries and become successful at it." But his goal has always been music from a young child growing up in a musical background. "I've always tried hard to do the right thing by my parents even if it was a hard battle ground." His next project is a DVD based on his life's journey as a former street kid. In the past he has performed at numerous events including World Refugee Day, Prime Ministers Drug and Alcohol Awards, the ACCAN Conference and Queensland Day Celebrations, Urban Caboolture Country Music festival and the Police commissioners Christmas carols 2005/2007.
