About Artist

An emerging singer-songwriter with a voice bigger than his little town could contain, Anthony followed the city lights to Sydney, making it the stage from which he would deliver his debut album DISAPPEARING DAY. This is straightforward acoustic pop-rock with a singer-songwriter edge. No smoke and no mirrors. With an undeniable, unforgettable live performance you wonder where Anthony has been hiding. With a distribution deal under his belt and the first two singles, “Little Piece of Love” and “Daylight” gaining radio airplay across the country, Anthony set the sails on his Australian tour. Over 300 live shows including opening spots for major Australian artists, led to an invitation to tour the USA. This success hasn't come easily and the Anthony Snape back-story recalls years of school productions, local rock bands and a passion that couldn’t be satisfied. He worked solidly as a session singer for radio, TV and as a backing vocalist. Resulting in Anthony co-writing and recording the Sydney 2000 Olympic games theme song for the official National Radio Network. He was then invited to perform in the UK where his performance was televised live to an international audience. Along the way a chance encounter with producers Matt Fell and Lindsay Rimes re-aligned the focus. Laying the foundation for a straight down the line pop rock record with Anthony’s guitar and vocals, backed by a hot band and a fresh studio sound. Delivering more than just commercial appeal, “Disappearing Day” reveals a depth and maturity that strikes at the heart of the listener. “It’s good to have some sort of a plan but when you look back to how I got this far there is no way that it ever goes to plan, sometimes it just feels right and that’s when the magic happens”, says Anthony. With his fan base increasing, Anthony went on to win numerous awards (2x MusicOz award winner, Rising Star winner, ASA awards). In 2008, Anthony landed his first American TV placement. “Walking” from his debut album featured on the top rating NBC program "The Biggest Loser 5". It was broadcast into millions of American homes and aired around the world. In the same year, he embarked on an American tour opening for guitar virtuoso Tommy Emmanuel. From the East Coast to the West Coast and North to South, Anthony’s music and live charismatic onstage performance crossed 18 states and exposed his music to more than 20,000 new fans. “There’s nothing like the feeling of playing my music to a new crowd. The audience here are so warm and responsive” Anthony reveals. 2009 is set to be an exciting year with Anthony showcasing at the biggest music industry event of its kind in the world, The SXSW Music Festival in Austin, Texas. With an infectious energy and comparisons to Rob Thomas, and Neil Finn, this genuinely talented, level-headed guy is more than you expect. This is ANTHONY SNAPE.
