Anthony Michael

Born in the eclectic music scenes of Washington D.C and Philadelphia P.A. --then polished on the campus of the University of Tennessee in Knoxville while receiving a degree in music, singer songwriter Anthony Michael (Bernhauser) combines his percussive guitar flavor with fresh songwriting to create a highly energetic and entertaining musical experience appropriate for all ages.

Before moving to Nashville Tennessee in 2010 to record his Debut Album "Meant To Be" with multi-Platinum sound engineer's Jenny Rosato Lutkins (George Massenburg, Montgomery Gentry), and Erik Lutkins (Tim McGraw, Faith Hill, Sugarland, and Byron Gallimore), Anthony was the lead singer and rhythm guitarist of the Knoxville based band Genuine Nothing. Genuine Nothing is a staple rock band in the Fraternity and Sorority show circuit and has played many clubs and venues in the Knoxville and Nashville area since 2007.

In both 2008 and 2009, Anthony gained national recognition for his songs “Take it Back” and “Swivel Stick” which were the Tennessee State Finalist in the BMI MENC John Lennon Songwriting Contest.

Fueled by the success of his debut album "Meant To Be" released in 2011 by De Lune Records, Anthony Michael has been a breakout artist over the past two years playing 100+ shows. His coast to coast tours have included stops at World Famous venues in major US cities such as the Whisky A Go Go in L.A., The Bluebird Cafe & EXIT/IN in Nashville, The Parkside Lounge in NYC, The World Cafe Live in Philadelphia, IOTA in D.C. , Eddie's Attic in Atlanta, The Parish's Beale Street Tavern in Austin, and island hopping shows in the Virgin Islands. Anthony also played to the likes of 10,000 people in Columbus Ohio while opening for Warner Bros. Recording Artists' Chuck Wicks and James Otto at the 2011 Pelotonia Concert . In June 2013, Anthony Michael released his second album "LIVE AT EXIT/IN", recorded live at the Legendary Nashville venue on February 24th 2013.
