From the songwriting and the vocals to the design, the promotion and the funding, the entire project is entirely self-managed. Two Hometime singles have been released so far – «Gratitude» and «The Sound Of Heartbreak», both of which trail the forthcoming debut album, «Past Imperfect».
Tony Kavanag is busy on the songwriting front – both for himself and others.

«Agony» is the latest addition to his catalogue that explores the duality of the highs of love vs the dark realities of heartbreak.
