Summerline parted ways and although Anto liked the comradery of being onstage with a band, he knew it was time to go solo. "I know some people feel like there are too many independent artists out there now so no one is getting heard, and it is hard but I love that it allows musicians to be free. I don't have to fit into a mold, I can be myself."
Anto was born in Milan, Italy but taught himself English. He also taught himself to play piano and has composed music in genres ranging from punk to pop to orchestral pieces for soundtracks. "I'm still learning. One of my regrets is that I didn't receive any formal training about how to make music.
Songs from his first two EPs and his newest single "Don't Give a Damn" have played on independent radio stations across Europe and the United States, and he's been reviewed and interviewed by magazines in countries as diverse as Russia, Germany and his homeland of Italy.
