"Nieves' album launch a success"

The crowed yelled for more as Anthony Nieves left the

stage at a packed Fly By Night Club on November 2. He was at the Fremenatle club to promote the release of his new album All That I Am.

Nieves captivated the audience with his subtle and edgy rock, which came to life with a full band.

The Fly By Night Club is a launching pad for budding musicians and a venue for some of the best Australian and world artists.

Nieves has made his Mark as a Solo artist in Perth for several years.

Many of His Life experiences have been reflected in his lyrics and music.

Nieves' new album's release was a success, and there was another objective for the night.

He has set out to promote Australian Music at the MIDEM trade event in France, which is the worlds biggest music industry trade fair.
"I am really pleased, it was a bigger success than I had anticipated and the support has been a little overwhelming I am stoked," nieves said. he said he had plans to move overseas to try and tap into his target market. "Despite the almost maximum capacity crowd at the Fly By Night Club, I feel my music might be better suited to an overseas market," he said.

"I am heading to MIDEM in January to kick off the New Year, so what ever happens next, I know I'll be very busy." - Fremantle Gazette 13-11-07


"ANTHONY NIEVES - ALL THAT I AM - CD REVIEW"

Perth artist Anthony Nieves has been plying his craft as a songwriter and bergeoning live performer in Perth and Fremantle for a couple of years now. A 400-strong audience at the Fly By Night Club recently for his CD launch bears testament to his diligence, something also on display here on said album, "All That I Am".
What Nieves clearly is, is a romantic. The songs on offer are open, almost surprisingly so. From "Autumn Days" (which first appeared as the title track on Nieves' first album release, under the Fluid Ground moniker), to the Eskimo Joe-Meets-Matchbox-20 feel of "The Ride" and the angrier, edgier, "In The Shadows".
The musicality and arrangements on this release are of an impressively high standard, however lyrically Nieves could probably do with being a little less literal. It's one thing penning songs that are universal, another to pen songs that are uncomfortably so. It's the difference between Maroon 5 and Hootie and the Blowfish.
Nieves clearly has a gift that could reach a wide commercial audience. "All That I Am" is only a part of his journey towards it.
