Anthony's an authentic independent artist. You've heard the word independent used before in music marketing campaigns by record labels trying to make their bands sound cool. But these bands usually have a huge marketing team and a lot of capital invested in their careers and are not independent artists. Anthony is part of a new generation of artists that are real. Real in the way that you can feel the hairs rising on your arms when you hear them play. So real that they may come to your house and play for you in person and make you laugh, cry, smile and dance. Anthony loves to create real connections and emotional exchange through his music. As a result, Anthony's fans (known as SNAPESTARS) are some of the most passionate, strong and independent people on the planet. So passionate that they have taken it on themselves to market and promote Anthony's music to the world.
Born in a small town in northwest NSW, Australia, Anthony spent his teenage years involved in school music events, rock bands and singing in local theatre productions. After graduating from the Talent Development Program (supported by board members Alan Jones, John Forman, Mary Lopez with many other Australian artists such as Human Nature) at the Sydney Entertainment Centre; Anthony worked solidly and uncredited as a backing vocalist for many well known Australian artists. He also worked as a session singer for Australia's major radio network 2UE and started his own pop rock band playing all along the east coast. This culminated in Anthony co-writing and recording the Sydney 2000 Olympic games theme song for the Radio 2UE and winning the first John Laws Rising Star competition with his song, Idiosyncrasy.
