James Anthony has backed up some of the biggest musical artists in the industry. And now, with the release of his seventh CD -- On The Edge -- he makes an impressive, horn-driven leap forward that showcases his massive talent.

From finger-picking acoustic roots blues and slide, to sizzling electric blues, R&B and jazz – James Anthony does it all. He is an unsung Canadian musical treasure.

James' experience in the music industry is reminiscent of legendary players of the past.

As a member of LuLu's house band, James worked with over 150 Rock & Roll Legends, playing to up to 5,000 people every weekend.

Live Radio and Television concerts have put him on stage with Juno winner Denny Doherty, Patricia Dahlquist and Murray McLaughlin.
