When: Friday October 12, 2001

NEWCASTLE-based singer and songwriter Tonchi has a lot to say and a lot that Australians can relate to and understand.

Brought up in the outback town of Bourke and moving to Newcastle in 1994, Tonchi has spent the past few years touring the country and working on his long awaited debut album.

The album, titled Bridges, is complete and Tonchi will launch it at the Cambridge Hotel on Friday night.

The album was recorded in Victoria last November and explores Tonchi's gift for songwriting and story-telling about love, battle, bravado and everyday life.

Among the tracks Mayfield, dedicated to the suburb.

The album has already received a lot of attention and was the feature album on ABC Radio National last week.

Apart from working on his album, Tonchi has spent time sharing his gift of songwriting in workshops across NSW in schools, detention centres, community youth programs and TAFE.
