"Dig This Real - Issue 15"

Feature: Anthony Giambrone - p. 24

"Classically trained at the piano, it is no surprise that Giambrone shows some impressive chops on the ivory on his latest EP entitled, "No Need to Go So Fast". On one of the tracks, "Put Up A Fight", his jazzy, ragtime stlylings are reminscent of some of Ben Fold's more intricate compositions. To top it off, Giambrone's tenor is memorable and moving."

Full interview follows. - Matt Giegerich

"'s a lovely CD. I especially liked the first song 'Seven O'clock'; but there's plenty more there to enjoy. Soulful music from a sweet Listen for Yourself. You'll be happy you did. Music to my ears." - Lorenzo Malowane

Classically trained at the piano, anthony giambrone is a powerful vocalist and a talented songwriter inspired by beauty and screaming for change. His ability to blend classical, blues, and rock piano styles and combine them with edgy lyrics and vocals make for a truly intense musical experience.

anthony fronted various rock bands in the Toronto area in the late 90s but decided to go solo in 2000 when he had amassed a huge repertoire of solid and powerful piano written rock songs. Various live shows as a solo act ensued and the overwhelming positive response to his performances led to his first solo recording in 2001 - a six song EP called 6 Planets.

To support the EP, anthony continued to play a flurry of live shows throughout Toronto and area with the support of his band The Flat Planets. He earned commendable success between 2001 and 2004, garnering campus radio play, local television attention, selling out numerous shows, releasing a live CD, participating in various festivals, and winning a singer/songwriter competition.

While anthony had put his solo work on a back burner between 2004 and 2007 in order to foster the collective band effort of The Flat Planets, he continued to write on the piano, further developing his work as a singer and songwriter. "no need to go so fast", anthony's latest solo release, is a culmination of his most recent songwriting - a throwback to the piano and vocals as the central foci of his music.

Working with Toronto producer/engineer Dan Kircher, anthony was able to put together a collection of songs that are beautiful and playful, yet somehow raw and indignant.

The release of "no need to go so fast" was marked by a performance to an overcapacity crowd at The Paddock in downtown Toronto on September 5th, 2008. Since then, the EP has received remarkable reviews in Toronto based Snap Downtown magazine, New York based Dig This Real, and recieved two awards at the Toronto Exclusive Magazine Music Awards in October, 2008 - best song for "Seven O'Clock", and best EP.

anthony performs on the first Friday of every month at Zemra Lounge in Toronto.
