“I’m Coming Home” by Tony Diana

March 2, 2007

Tony Diana is a singer/songwriter living in Central Florida. But there’s more to Tony Diana than that. Tony is a kind, caring, generous person and great friend, who unselfishly gives of himself to support our troops through his music. Tony has taken time out of his busy schedule, to donate his time and talent to perform for the troops, in hopes that through his music, they know just how much he supports and appreciates them for the sacrifices they make. Tony writes many of his songs, based on the emotions our soldiers go through during their deployments. How does he do this? Tony, himself is a proud Veteran of the US Army, so he knows those emotions well. Tony’s newest song, “I’m Coming Home” is written from the perspective of a deployed soldier who is coming to the end of their deployment and preparing to come home & the emotions that soldier is going through.

From Tony’s MySpace page, his own words about the inspirations for his songs:

“I used to be in the Army and I am now a musician and songwriter. I support our troops, without regards to politics and I do my best to do that through my music.
Before OIF started I wrote a song called Picture of You. It is about going off to war and putting a picture in your Kevlar to remind you of what you are fighting for and what you are coming back to. I then put together pictures of the troops (some sent to me, some from the net) and Todd Clegg did a flash video for the song. You can view it at my other site Tony Diana by clicking on the “Picture of You” link on the upper left side of the page. I have just finished a new song called I. It is dedicated to all the troops that did not make it home. All proceeds from this song will go to a charity scholarship for benefiting the families of the survivors.”

Since writing “Pictures Of You” and “I”, Tony has written another song called, “Flag Up High” which was written in response to media reports of homeowners associations making their residents take down their flags. Tony has a unique sound, all his own. A little bit of funky, bluesy, folky rock with a distinct “Bob Dylan” sound. Many of Tony’s songs have been set to video, which only increases the impact the words have on you and the emotion behind the song.

Tony Diana’s words and music come from the heart. They portray the emotions of being in the military and the emotions of someone who loves his country and is not ashamed to say so. Tony’s music will stir a chord in you and make you proud of the men and women serving this country in the military. I’m proud to say that Tony Diana is my friend.

Please take some time to visit Tony’s webpage, Tony Diana and his MySpace page , listen to his music and get to know Tony. You’ll be glad that you did.

    hah, she’s right. between you and CJ at ASP, I’m a big crybaby today!

    Great video. The homecoming pictures always get to me. Especially the kids and parents and most especially ones like the sailor holding his newborn he is obviously meeting for the first time.

    Thanks Terri!
