James Anthony is an award winning vocalist that truly feels the music and believes that a song is to be vocalized to tell a story. James has a unique and different vocal tone and with a 3 octave range, warmth and grit, he gives a wonderful fresh perspective to the songs he sings.
James is the winner of the Sinatra Idol in 2012 and was awarded the only perfect score. With passion, James works to keep his vocals in shape so as to bring the songs to life during his performances, preserving and delivering the songs with ownership.
James grew up in Las Vegas with his Irish/Italian family & relatives - all who worked in the casino business - and was surrounded by the constant big band sounds of Sinatra, Elvis, Dino, Tom Jones, Bobby Darin, Doris Day and so on. This cat's got it in his blood, and man does he deliver!
The Shades of Blue CD is a result of James' personal experiences and tracks that were laid down with passion.
