Chris Anthem

Chris Anthem is an American Pop/R&B singer-songwriter and producer. In the summer of 2012, Anthem released a 5-track EP "Atta Boy", a collection of nostalgic recordings inspired by late 80's and early 90's R&B.

As an openly gay artist from the Midwest, Anthem set out at an early age to challenge the heteronormativity of mainstream music. "When I was little, one of my brothers told me Luther Vandross was gay. I was young and naive so it surprised me because he never sang about men. So I asked my brother why that was. Laughing, he replied, 'You can't do that. You can't have a man singing about another man on the radio!'"

Armed with his new EP "Atta Boy" and a style described as "sexy but safe", Anthem challenges the hetero-norm of today's pop landscape with fun, honest hooks and throwback beats.
