Tony Garnier (born Saint Paul, Minnesota, 1956) is an American bassist (both double bass and bass guitar), best known as an accompanist to Bob Dylan, with whom he has played since 1989. He is Dylan's longest-running sideman, and has sometimes been characterized as his "musical director" as well.

In addition to his work with Dylan, Garnier has recorded with Tom Waits, Loudon Wainwright III, Paul Simon, Marc Ribot and Eric Andersen, and was a member of Asleep at the Wheel (from 1971-78) and The Lounge Lizards. He also played with Robert Gordon in the early 1980s. He was also a long-time sideman for David Johansen in his Buster Poindexter persona. He appeared in Bob Dylan's 2003 film Masked and Anonymous.

In fact, fellow Minnesotan Garnier's work with Dylan dates back at least to 1975, with the Renaldo and Clara production.

In 2008, Garnier is working with Michelle Branch in her third studio album, Everything Comes and Goes, to be released in 2009.[1]
