T O N Y E N O S
CEO of lil' T Entertainment LLC. & HIV Positive Pop Recording Artist
Hailed as "a National treasure in the LGBTQ2S Community" by Rowan University, and "the most exciting performer to come out of Philadelphia since Patti LaBelle" by gbmnews.com, two-time Native American Music Awards Nominee, and HIV positive pop artist Tony Enos was named one of "The Native Americans Changing the World," by Ozy Media in March of 2021! Tony Enos celebrates over a decade as a singer/songwriter/producer, electrifying live stage entertainer, activist, and is one of the most prolific generative queer artists of his time. Always encouraging love wherever he goes, and fighting for our youth, the Philadelphia native was voted 2017 Native Trailblazer Indie Music Awards "Artist To Watch" for his single "Two Spirit," which has become the Two-Spirit movement's anthem.
Enos burst onto the music scene in 2009 with his debut album "Did It Rite," released under his own Philly based label, lil' T Entertainment LLC. Following "The Heat Tour 2012/2013", and his break through 2012 sophomore album "The Heat," the seasoned live performer has been leaving audiences across the country spellbound! His ability to bring audiences from all walks of life together and make a each person feel as though they're the only person in the room, while delivering a dazzling and heart pounding show is reminiscent of the instincts and talent of the music icons that the world loves so much.
In addition to his ongoing philanthropic efforts in the LGBTQ2S community and youth rights, HIV/AIDS awareness, and Domestic Violence awareness, the musician is bringing attention to Native American/First Nations/Indigenous issues such as the Two Spirit reclamation, and healing. "I truly believe where words fail, music speaks," says the South Philly native. The Vegas style entertainer released his self-written and self-produced 4th studio album, "POSI+IVE," now available on iTunes and everywhere, world wide: https://music.apple.com/us/album/positive/1520164123
“POSI+IVE,” chronicles the Two-Spirit singer/songwriter/producer’s journey of thriving as a person living with HIV (PLWH) since his diagnosis in July of 2006. But the inspiration for the album didn’t come until Enos opened the United States Conference on AIDS on August 5th, 2019 in Washington, DC.
“POSI+TIVE” doesn’t hide anything. While the the record is positive and uplifting, and maintains a pop music genre labeling, “POSI+IVE” boasts an eclectic offering of acoustic love ballads, EDM, R&B, and New Country. Enos has masterfully penned songs about finding and losing love, navigating toxic relationships as a PLWH, self-worth, socio-political themes and issues, and of course thriving with HIV.
While ballads like “Losing Season,” and “He Was So Beautiful,” show off a more vulnerable Enos, EDM tracks like “Based On A True Story,” and the timely acoustic-anchored “This Close To Freedom,” gives T-Bones the essentials they’re looking for.
At the heart of the album, it is driven by activism, empathy, pain and redemption, compassion, love, and – as the album’s closing track “Based On A True Story” states – “wind and fire, guts and glory.”
Enos said of the album and being open about his HIV positive status, "If I can make the experience of living with HIV even a hairline easier for someone, then this is all worth it!"
