And he sings. Hauling a heavy soul, his wary, deep-set, hickory eyes and 6-foot 5-inch delivery are as indelible as his moniker.
As a teen, the 34-year old New York native worked his summers as a stagehand for the Newport Jazz and Folk Festivals before eventually signing with BMI and Orange Music Publishing in 2008.
He has performed at festivals including Wanee, SunFest and CMJ, while his catalog has garnered licensing by the likes of ABC, Hugo Boss and Disney. A multifaceted creator, Anthony was the principle film score composer for the Woodstock Film Festival selected documentary, Catskill Park as well as HBO’s Call to Action and I Wanna See You.
His most recent full-length effort Refuge, released on Big Eyes Records, showcases the ability to balance ambition with authenticity. Recorded at East Nashville’s analog wonderland The Bomb Shelter, with producer Jon Estes (Kesha, John Paul White) and the additional aid of Grammy Award-winning Andrija Tokic (Alabama Shakes), the discreetly charming nine-song LP explores the notion of “safe-haven” — as the title suggests — painting a landscape where the pastoral and the personal converge.
