Music

Music has been a part of my life since I was born. Growing up in Memphis, Tennessee, the city of Blues, Soul, and Rock & Roll, to living in the home of country music, Nashville, Tennessee, there must be something in the water. The section of Interstate 40 between Memphis and Nashville is named “Music Highway”.

Inspiration

Tony Rossini - Meet Me After School (Sun Records)

"The person who inspired me to make music wasn't Elvis Presley. It was my uncle Tony who began recording on Sun records at the same time as Elvis."

-Anthony Anthamatten

Drummer

I began playing drums when I was 13 years old.

Club DJ

I was a club DJ in the late 80s and early 90s. I can mix vinyl and match beats which is funny when I see a kid walk in with his laptop… I hauled 300 pounds of records into a venue.

Writing Music

Headphones and lyrics to Rob It In by Anthony Anthamatten

Music is like poetry. While I will never be a professional musician, I enjoy creating music.
