Some would argue that "Tony's" style and personna are an eccentric combustion of his environment, musical influences, and X chromosome. But the reality is that his style and music are separate entities creating an atmosphere only his creativity can co-exist in.

Biography

A Bit of Tony.

Anthony Blaine continues to impress new listeners at every show. He utilizes and capitalizes on what he believes to be most important in music performance and the recording arts and sciences; DyNaMiCs!

A daytime vocal coach, piano and guitar teacher,
Anthony holds the ability to turn heads because of the sheer interest that is derived from giving people something they have not heard before. In this day and age, vast media sources, like the internet and satellite radio, have introduced an opportunity for anyone to listen to hundreds of artists with the click of a button, meaning that
there are plenty of influences for bands who are starting out. Having this said, it seems there is a shortage of fresh ideas in the past decade. "After being comfortable with writing music that is highly influenced by favorite musicians, it becomes more stimulating to write using more creativity and to ultimately achieve my own original and unique sound." Anthony explains, "I do not believe that everything has been done or heard yet, but I feel that many artists seem to reach a standpoint in their songwriting capabilities limiting their variety of pieces. I prioritize the idea for my work to stand out by being different."

Artistically, Anthony has managed to play over 300 shows in the local pub and bar circuit, as well as various TV appearances, charity performances, and repeatedly acquiring 1st place at many 'battle of the bands' / 'singer-songwriter competitions.

Using the knowledge and technique acquired from much experience in professional recording environments, plus courses taken at Night Deposit Studios inc., he currently works on a new album out of his home studio.

At the young age of 20, he has put out a total of 4 albums, with the last solo acoustic album selling one thousand copies just in Calgary. Given this, his next CD will prove to be just as successful.

Anthony loves living the lifestyle of a musician
and by "Learning to express who I am through song, and I will continue to do so as long as I am still discovering myself. Music is not directly
about the melody, rhythm or lyrics, but the feeling conveyed to the audience from the artist."
