At a music event in Los Angeles, Anthony was chosen randomly from the audience to play for Kara DioGuardi. At the end of the performance Kara stood up and hugged Anthony, showing him the goose bumps on her arms "totally unique, your voice was so on the money, it was effortless, I bought into you and I forgot where I was."-Kara DioGuardi.
Anthony is a rare find, an artist that can take on many genres but is most at home in the pop rock world. Influenced by pop culture and bands like Rob Thomas, Cold Play and Neil Finn. Anthony's brand of songwriting is all about connection. "In my head every performance is a stadium rock show, every song is like a part of my soul that is bursting to get out." –Anthony Snape
