Vocalist and songwriter Anthony began his professional career playing in the metropolitan New York-New Jersey area. Studying with vocal coach Ernest Castaldo of Manhattan, Anthony became a fixture as a jazz vocalist performing in New York City and along the Jersey shore. Anthony began his songwriting experimenting with contemporary and pop music. More recently, he began writing music that emphasizes melody and lyric, and with deference to those that comprise the American songbook. His music has been described as “filled with passion and wonderful surprises”. It is a signature sound uniquely blending both jazz and pop elements, accentuated with clever lyrics.
Anthony works with some of the music industry’s most widely regarded musicians. He produced the CD, “From the HIP” with artists who have performed with such notables as Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Olivia Newton-John, Stan Getz, Buddy Rich, Blood, Sweat & Tears, Chicago, Lionel Hampton Big Band, as well as having performed in Broadway stage productions.
Anthony is also a vocalist/songwriter for Marty Eigen's Beacon Hill Jazz Band. The band recently recorded Anthony's songs "Our Love Has Real Possibility" and "Double Trouble".
