Our Guest: 

Tony DeBlois was born weighing 1 lb., ¾ oz.  But that was only the first obstacle that he had to overcome.  Tony is also blind and autistic, with Savant Syndrome. 

This 41-year-old pianist from Randolph, MA, who has been playing piano since age two, was the subject of a movie inspired by actual events in Tony’s life.  “Journey of the Heart,” with Cybil Shepard, was a 1997 CBS made-for-TV movie of the week.  Additionally, he has appeared on 2 Catholic Global Showcase Specials (2001) and The Learning Channel’s “Uncommon Genius,” Strange Science “Unusual People,” and “Understanding the Mysteries of Memory.” 

Tony graduated magna cum laude from Berklee College of Music.  In addition to piano and organ, he plays harmonica, guitar, harpsichord, English hand bells, violin, banjo, drums, saxophone, clarinet, ukulele, mandolin, flute and trumpet. His extensive repertoire includes jazz, classical, pop, rock and show tunes. Tony’s favorite phrase seems to be, “I haven’t learned that yet.”  He is on Facebook and has a website,   www.tonydeblois.com.
