ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
According to Rob Anthony, life is a journey that we find ourselves on and most people never find a place to be comfortable. 'Where I Belong' is more than the title to his second album, it's a mantra. It speaks more about landing than asking the question.

Coming off a whirl wind ride with his award winning debut release 'Hard To Believe', once again Rob's high energy music driven by powerful acoustic rhythms sets stage for his strong pleasantly raspy voice backing up songs clearly drawing from the common experiences we all face with the world around us - love, loss, desire and faith but most importantly our hopes and dreams. "We all have dreams," says Anthony, "we need them and through my music I continue mine and hope to inspire others to follow theirs".

Features Rob's hit song 'We All Need' dedicated to those who encourage and inspire us to be the best we can be during some of life's toughest challenges.

With that said Rob offers 'Where I Belong' a blend of acoustic rock songs.

Love it
Hey Rob
If you ever read this (and I've heard all you albums)this is the best one because it allows your melidic but gravelly voice to come through whilst still taking in the guitar arrangements. To me (ex-pro), this is a mix of Bryan Adams and Neil Diamond. gimme your personal email so we can talk! Excellent stuff!

Score! Music Magazine

I find myself moving room to room, singing harmony without even realizing it
It's taken me a bit to finish this review, and with the multiple listens of the CD, I find myself moving room to room, singing harmony without even realizing it. Rob Anthony's music is a bit alt-rock, with a rootsy feel. Simple, heartfelt songs layered with Rob's vocals and guitar, harmony thanks to bassist Dave Baumann, drummer Barry Jaeger, and a voilin courtesy of Tommy Greywolf. The songs are about such topics as finding your home ("Where I Belong"), faith ("Believe In Me") and love ("Waiting For You"). Acoustic or electric, it's catchy stuff.

Where I Belong is another exceptional effort.
Local singer-songwriter Rob Anthony may split his time between Appleton and Milwaukee, but if the old saying is true that home is where the heart is, then Anthony will always find comfort and rest in his music. His latest CD, Where I Belong, is a sharply produced album of Americana rock with songs that brighten the day and lift the spirit.

When Anthony graduated from high school in 1990, he participated in a nationwide audition for the lead guitar position with the alternative thrash metal band Acrophet, which was signed with Triple X records in Hollywood. He won the slot and went on tour with the band until they called it quits three years later. He then took a 180-degree turn, focusing on a soulful, acoustic rock approach. His first solo CD, Hard To Believe, was critically acclaimed, winning him accolades and awards.

Where I Belong is another exceptional effort that gives listening pleasure and emotional stimulation. Anthony's songwriting is cleverly direct, sprouting tendrils that gently work into your heart to loosen the bindings a bit. Anthony's lyrics paint a picture of a young man who has gained a lot of worldly experience yet still is on a journey, searching for a deeper fulfillment in both earthly and divine love.

The music is full of pleasant melodies that at times turn a forlorn glance toward the listener. Anthony's smooth voice has a good range with a bit of grittiness and will occasionally bring to mind a youthful Neil Diamond. When Anthony plays his acoustic guitar, the chords float off the strings like a kindred singer engaged in a duet. Dave Baumann's bass and Barry Jaeger's drums pepper the songs with punchy rhythms. Tommy Greywolf's violin adds a significant dimension to the album, popping up here and there to add a country accent.

Anthony's side project, the band onebodytoomany, finds him and Jaeger teaming up with a few other musicians to play what he describes as metal core, akin to Slipnot and Fear Factory.

Anthony has made more than 100 appearances in the area this past year and is planning to spend the next few months supporting Where I Belong on the West Coast, working on a film soundtrack, and then traveling to Italy to perform his own music and play backup guitar for a female vocalist from San Francisco. You will be able to catch his live performances when he is back in the area in March to continue his U.S. tour. Go to www.robanthonymusic.com for more information.
