Anthony Edward "Tony" Fagenson (born July 18, 1978) is a producer, songwriter, and drummer for rock band Eve 6.[1] While attending the University of Southern California, he auditioned for La Crescenta, CA band Eleventeen (eventually to become Eve 6 ) to replace their drummer. A fan at the time of the Fox TV show "The X-Files", Fagenson and singer Max Collins were inspired to name the band Eve 6 after seeing the X-Files episode "Eve" while recording their first album.

When not spending time on band matters, Fagenson has produced and co-written songs for artists such as Puddle of Mudd, Emily Osment, Illustrated, the Johnsons, Sandra N, Malbec, the Outré, and others.

In 2005, Fagenson joined former Eve 6 member Max Collins in forming a new band, The Sugi Tap. They played smaller venues and released an EP.

Tony is the son of the Grammy Award winning producer Don Was.
