Tommy Anton

Tommy Anton can't remember a time when he wasn't banging on something. He started early in life with cardboard boxes, pots and pans, and wooden spoons. By the time he was five, he knew he wanted to be a musician. For his ninth birthday, he asked for a drum kit, but his dad feared Tommy's dedication, knowing that there would be no peace in the house. So, instead, Tommy got a guitar for his birthday, and thus began his life-long pull between guitar and drums.

Once out of his parents' house, Tommy finally bought his first drum kit and soon became one of the hottest drummers in Austin, Texas. Later, Tommy began singing at drum circles and noticed folks had an immediate and powerful response to his voice. His desire to deliver a message of self-transformation and conscious evolution brought him back to his guitar and led him along the singer/songwriter path where he finds himself today.

Now, Tommy's voice is truly his most powerful instrument, strong enough to carry the message of love and compassion that comes from deep within his heart. Currently based in Asbury Park, New Jersey, after having lived the life of a musical nomad for nine years, touring from Maui to Amsterdam, New York City to Big Sur, Tommy performs his modern folk-pop songs on the coffee house, festival and theater circuit.

His self-titled, four-song EP is currently receiving airplay across the country. The CD features guest musicians Leigh Foxx (Blondie, Patti Smith, Cyndi Lauper) on bass, and Pat Mastelotto (King Crimson, XTC, Mr. Mister) on drums.
