|Wild T & the Spirit have been receiving rave reviews from fans & press all over the world for their stellar musicianship blended with a dynamic live show. Wild T & the Spirit released their CD "Fender Bender" on Germany 's Jazzhaus Records last year. The album covers the whole spectrum with blistering guitar ripping' blues rock, soulful melodies and psychedelic super jams a la Jimi Hendrix, an artist that Springer has emulated on many occasions both in guitar dexterity and appearance.
The late Jeff Healey used to say "I followed him around like he was the Messiah... Tony has been my idol for years”. Also, when David Bowie hand picks you to be his guitar player from a glimpse of a Wild T & the Spirit video, you just might be recognized as a top player.
As for now, the Wild T & The Spirit tour will travel to Germany, Poland, Austria and Switzerland.
