From early years of labels, lawyers, artist management wars, marketing deadlines, etc., it’s morning rides like this where I just breathe and sigh with relief to be settled down in a small cozy town and its beauty with a true sense of appreciate for life; able to work and create music with no boundaries surrounded by amazing inspirational talent.

I’ll have another new video release in the next couple weeks and you’ll be the first to know for being a mail list subscriber. If you love the ocean and its potion you’ll love the new song ‘I Feel Your Love’. Stay tuned.

Have a blessed day.

One love, RA

Far from my heart

May 18, 2014

Studio
Earlier this year, in his first sessions with the band in over five years, Rob Anthony started laying tracks on what will be his 6th studio album release.

“It got spiritual”, anthony admits, “When energies connect on a musical level it’s unlike any other experience. In a short while I’ll be releasing these new songs to the world. In a short while I’ll, once again, remember why I do what I do.” 

Since the release of his fifth solo album ‘While The World Sleeps’ followed by a severe throat injury leaving him with a year long struggle through vocal therapy Anthony is excited to return with the band releasing what he calls “a mix of midwestern Americana songs with a touch of caribbean flavor.”

Wrapped in a blanket of Americana allure while tugging on a few heartstrings, Rob Anthony leaves us with the sense of an artist who reaches into the soul, grabs the struggles of the inner man, and weaves it into a solid personal connection.

Preview Rob’s first single ‘Far From My Heart’

$500,000 raised for the American Red Cross.

February 22, 2014

As you may or may not know, my good friend Jody Weyers of American Red Cross – Northeast Wisconsin Region, danced in the Dancing with Our Stars for the American Red Cross on Valentine’s weekend. She not only killed it, but won Peoples Choice Award. It was an amazing night to say the least. 

When Jody started her adventure over four months ago, she never thought it would have the impact that it has had on her life. Her goal was to raise $40,000 through our 40 for 40 concert held in early February. Well, I’m thrilled to announce the event was a huge success and raised just over $54,000. I am humbled and honored to be a part of the event. And, I am very proud of Jody.

Of course, an intricate part of any successful event is to have talented photographers capture its magic and Jenna Cornell did it with perfection. You can watch this cool photo slideshow Jenna put together of her photography featuring my song “You Gotta Love”: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JyXPmSfiRAs . She also combined it with a write up about the concert: http://bit.ly/VirtualMusicCafe

Finally, the Dancing with Our Stars for the American Red Cross raised $500,660 in total. That is an amazing amount of funds, which will be used to help those in our local area. To find out how you can support the American Red Cross, please visit their website at http://www.redcross.org. And, to support the cause in Northeast Wisconsin, visit their website at http://www.redcross.org/wi/Oshkosh.

Musically Yours,

Hallelujah, they finally get it right.

December 27, 2013

The rock and roll hall of fame.

It’s not about tattoos.

It’s not about clothing.

It’s about what’s inside!

NIRVANA

No questions asked. An automatic.

Let this be a lesson to the industry, that we should focus on individuals as opposed to money and commitments. If so, Kurt Cobain would be alive today.

Just try going on the road. Playing to an adoring throng and then getting in the bus with the same dudes you’ve known since high school, trying to come down to do it all over again. It takes drugs. And if you’re doing drugs it’s just a matter of time until you die.

Kurt was pushed too hard. And felt so alone. That’s the conundrum of stardom, oftentimes you’re the only one left inside, the world spins around you and you’re frequently oblivious.

I know nothing about his death you don’t, but I will say this guy had an ability to fuse melody and punk in a way that the public just could not resist. Add in the ability to emote with his voice and you have possibly the last rock superstar.

Not that Krist and Dave didn’t help. But there are only a few true superstars, and Kurt Cobain was one of them.

Come as you are. Please. Don’t dress up. Don’t make a deal with a fashion house. Don’t do endorsements. Keep it punk.

That’s why we believed in Nirvana. Because Kurt believed in rock and roll. Too bad he won’t be at the induction ceremony…

Why do I do what I do?

November 18, 2013

Lately I’ve been getting asked the same rhetorical question why do I do what I do. It’s a lot of work for little money & it’s often frustrating, as most of you close to me know all to well. It’s a very hard job that looks so easy to the outside world that they think I’m actually lazy!

Lately I’ve been getting asked the same rhetorical question why do I do what I do. It’s a lot of work for little money & it’s often frustrating, as most of you close to me know all to well. It’s a very hard job that looks so easy to the outside world that they think I’m actually lazy!

So why do I do what I do?

I’m an artist and because I get to touch people. (not that way perverts) When I’m performing I try to reach into the soul, grab the struggles of the inner man, and weave it into a solid personal connection. If that makes someone laugh or cry or dance with my music I know I’m helping them cope with whatever is going on in their busy sometimes difficult lives.

Then that person takes my CD’s home to their family and friends and they share my art, in turn helping those people feel better, and that wave of enjoyment makes its way outward. That’s important to me, and it’s the thing I think about when I get on stage and during the difficult times in my life along with a million other little subtle experiences that define what it means to be a musician.

I find inspiration from all of you and when you support my art by buying my music, sharing with friends and family, or coming to shows, you’re helping me help everyone else. So, you should feel proud to be part of my dream and know that I’m trying my hardest to do some good for the world one chord at a time.

And it’s knowing that you are one of a small percentage of the population to not only have seen, but to have lived behind the curtain with me that makes this whole crazy thing worth while.

But perhaps even more importantly than all of that, it’s YOU, the listener, that makes all of it matter.

I look forward to many more sometimes hard, sometimes ugly, always worth while experiences along this musical journey. Here’s to hoping that you are part of that journey.

If you’d like to hear the most recent milestone of that journey, click hear to listen to my most recent album, ‘Is This The Plan’.

Thank you for being a listener and for making it all matter.

While the world sleeps

November 11, 2013

Like many others, my father served and lost his life long battle upon returning shot and wounded from Vietnam. The memories of him and the nightmares that haunted him ’til his last breath will never be forgotten.

Out of that experience, and countless Veterans events I’ve performed this song at, I know I’m not the only one down on my knees from time to time praying the fight brings a little peace whether out there in the world we live in or the world within ourselves. Especially those fighting PTSD (Post Traumatic Stress Disorder)

I shared the lyrics I wrote below for you and a video link to my youtube video: http://bit.ly/WhileTheWorldSleepsVideo

While The World Sleeps

I don’t know why lately I cry
It seems like this life treats me so good
But the view I see on late night TV
The nightmares have caught up with me
It says please believe with no signs of relief
In all its glory lies misery

While the world sleeps I’m down on my knees
Praying for those all in need
While the world sleeps I’m praying to see
The wings of a dove flying free

John was a friend who swore to defend
A nation down on its knees
He packed his bags set off to sea
To fight for what he truly believed
The news today said he passed away
John was a hero they say

While the world sleeps I’m down on my knees
Praying the fight brings a little peace
While the world sleeps I’m waiting to see
A rain wash away the misery…Bring on the rain

On and on around it goes
On and on around we go

If faith is the key when will we see
The wings of a dove flying free…

Some Will Always Say You’re Wrong

November 1, 2013

Some people are into money. Some aren’t.

Some people are inspired by helping the needy. Some aren’t.

Some are into fame, power, and prestige. Others are into anonymity and freedom from responsibility.

It gets more interesting when you realize people have different preferences in the different parts of their life. Famous online, but anonymous in their local community. Generous with time, stingy with money. Introvert when working, extrovert when not.

You have to know your preferences well because no matter what you do, someone will tell you you’re wrong.

If you’re not into money, many people will say you’re foolish.

If you’re not into charity, many people will say you’re greedy.

If you’re not into crowds, many people will say you’re missing out.

Some careers come with excuses:

The classic novelist thrives in solitude. Alone in a cabin in the woods, writing books that reach millions.

The classic journalist thrives in a crowd. Talking with everyone, building the story from a thousand accounts.

The shy librarian. The aggressive lawyer. The flaky artist. No explanation needed.

But some careers need explanations when you go against the mold:

The entrepreneur who’s not into money.

The musician who avoids crowds ;)

The ambitious conservationist.

The artist into discipline.

The rich poet.

But if you expect this criticism in advance, and take pride in your stance, you can bash on with a smile, being who you want to be.

Then every time they say you’re wrong, that’s a sign you’re doing it right. ~ D.S.

Wise words that come to mind on 9/11

September 11, 2013

As we continue to face conflict in Syria and remember back to 2001, these wise words come to mind. “It isn’t enough to talk about peace. One must believe in it. And it isn’t enough to believe in it. One must work at it”. – Eleanor Roosevelt

Everybody in America has decided they’re a star

September 2, 2013
Dave Chapelle is a beacon. 
 
“Sure, there’s a history of heckling in comedy. But this is something different. Heckling used to be by drunks in clubs. Now it’s way of life. I’m better than the person on stage. I’ve got a Facebook page! Since the game is unwinnable, everybody in America has decided that they are a star. But everybody is not equal, especially when it comes to the talent department.”
 
Full Story:
 
It’s the culture.
 
Oh, I know it was a long show. And the audience was mostly white. And that Chappelle has a history of being prickly, being nobody’s “boy.”
 
But that’s exactly the point. In a culture where everybody’s doing what’s expected of them, trying to climb the economic ladder, those who question and say no, who listen to themselves as opposed to everybody else, not only triumph but are excoriated.
 
You see that’s not how we like it. We’re playing the game, and you should too.
 
Huh?
 
You know the game. Overpay for an education that’s not focused on making you a better citizen but training you for a job you can’t get. Bitching all the while that the system is stacked against you and if you can’t pay lower taxes and ensure that no one gets in line ahead of you, you’re gonna make a ruckus and vote some no-name nitwit into office to gum up the works.
 
And those who truly have money pay for influence. Via lobbyists. They make sure that they continue to win. If you think you can emerge victorious in America, go from the log cabin to the White House, you probably dream you can play in the NBA despite only being 5’6″.
 
So, since the game is unwinnable, everybody in America has decided that they are a star. Whether it be those producing music in GarageBand and spamming everybody with an e-mail address or those who make YouTube videos for the ad revenue, despite being talent-free, everybody in America thinks they’re not only equal to everybody else, but better!
 
You’ve got your look. Fashion is a bigger and more influential business than music. And you’ve got your piercings and tattoos, making yourself outre and unique. So when you go to the show, the concept of respecting and revering talent is completely out the window.
 
Forget about Chappelle. If you haven’t been brought to your knees by people talking during the performance of anybody and everybody, you’ve never left your house. People believe if they bought a ticket, they’re entitled to do whatever they want. Talk at the movies. Block your view. And if you ask them, even politely, to respect the rest of those in attendance, the blowback is deafening.
 
So are you surprised those who paid in Hartford considered themselves part of the show? The Governor of Arizona slights the President, do you really think some comedian is gonna get respect?
 
Sure, there’s a history of heckling in comedy. But this is something different. Heckling used to be by drunks in clubs. Now it’s way of life. I’m better than the person on stage. I’ve got a Facebook page!
 
Yup, there you have it.
 
But everybody is not equal, especially when it comes to the talent department. But the audience won’t believe this. Because that would mean they’re less than, and they can’t fathom it. Everybody wants to be rich and famous and nobody wants to do the work. So even if you make it to the top, you’re torn down.
 
If you haven’t gotten hate mail/tweets online, you don’t have an account. And I see no reason why celebrities should get their knickers in a twist about this, but what is interesting is it’s always nobodies in their underwear who perpetrate these attacks. It makes them feel powerful.
 
And I’m not saying that everybody who is not rich, talented and beautiful should just STFU, but I am saying we pay to see these people because they’ve demonstrated that they are better than us at certain skills. And the only way the culture of respect is gonna grow is if the performers themselves take a stand.
 
It can’t be about money. Don’t photograph me so I can sell photos myself!
 
But it can be about the raw performance/experience.
 
Now I’m not saying I see tweeting and e-mailing disappearing from shows. But I will say before all this technology entered the venue the experience was completely different. Maybe cell signals should be banned at arenas.
 
Nah, that’ll never happen.
 
But if artists are truly leaders, they’re the only ones who can change behavior.
 
We’ve seen musical artists quit performing to stop fights in the audience… By refusing to do his act, on demand, for this unruly crowd, Dave Chappelle took a stand for the artistic community and the arts themselves.
 
Meanwhile, all you’ve got is the click-hungry media saying otherwise. But these reporters are part of the problem. They too want to be famous. Remember Judith Miller?
 
So yes, we can comb the history of Chappelle and we can see his “performance” was not completely out of character.
 
But I will say my greatest live experiences were never about the people I went with, or the stories I told afterward, but the bond between performer and myself, the sheer electricity of the connection. That’s what it’s all about, not being at some big party where the artist is incidental.
 
So Dave Chappelle is a beacon. But I’ve yet to see another artist stand up for him. You know artists, they’re sheep. They’re afraid to lead. They must make sure they’re part of a team before they take a stand, and it absolutely positively cannot risk their relationship with their audience or their pocketbook.
 
Which is why art is in such sad shape these days.
 
Used to be artists were willing to live on the edge and test limits. We followed them because of who they were and what they said, not because of what they wore and how rich they had become.
 
If selling out to Samsung is the height of artistic success, count me out.
 
And I’m not selling out to Apple either.
 
Not a single faceless corporation where the CEO gets overpaid and is then squeezed out while the products fade away.
 
Used your 2001 Nokia cell phone recently?
 
How about that Sony CRT?
 
But great music lasts forever, people are still listening to the Beatles and the Stones and Stevie Wonder and…
 
Play for tomorrow, not for today.
 
And if you’re in the arts for the money, you’ve got your head up your rear end.
 
You’re in the arts to exact change, to make a difference. To take people on a journey wherein they not only enjoy themselves, but question themselves too.
 
Where was the questioning in Hartford? You had a boorish audience which wanted its expectations fulfilled. More than a challenging good time, they wanted to go home and tell everybody they were there, the same way the super-rich brag about their private jets and exotic vacations and upfront and personal overpriced scalper tickets at the gig.
 
Come on people, LET HIM DO HIS ACT!
 
P.S. I don’t need to analyze the video footage like the Zapruder film to know I’m right. There’s a vibe at a show that can never be captured on tape. Otherwise, we’d all watch concerts at home.
 
P.P.S. Evidence of the above is the tweet by Mack Mama, who gave Chappelle her book, which he read ironically: “Show was the best He read an excerpt of my book on stage in front of 8000 people Free Plug from my fav comedian.”

Rob Anthony opens Mile Of Music Festival

August 10, 2013

Appleton’s Mile of Music succeeds in its debut

By Examiner.com

8/9/13 – Opening the headlining event of Mile Of Music was hometown favorite Rob Anthony. A soulful singer-songwriter, Anthony brought the audience many of his best in Americana from his career as well as new music; pair them alongside excellent acoustic guitar and the performance speaks for itself.

Second in the lineup was Swear and Shake based out of Brooklyn, NY and Brian Vander Ark of Verve Pipe continued the flow with various acoustic pieces and upbeat performances.

If last night’s concert is any indication of the talent at Mile of Music this weekend, then concert goers are in for some of the best original music they have ever witnessed in the Fox Valley. > Continue reading

Welcome to the Heartland Paul McCartney

June 2, 2013

In honor of Paul McCartney returning to the heartland July 16th in concert I thought I’d welcome him with this tribute I recorded recently. As nervous as I was in the studio recording this legendary song by the greatest band of all time I was hesitant on releasing it to the public. But life is about taking risks. So with all my heart, soul & respect I present my acoustic version of ‘Let It Be’. Truly hope you enjoy.

Don’t Ever Let Go

May 15, 2013

Huge shout out to “Dr.” Denny Rauen of Rauen Guitars for the delicate operation & restoration of my Black Guild. You have no idea how good it feels to be reunited. In honor of her return I had to get right in & test her out. Here’s a newbie recorded live at the new Studio H complex w/Tony Anders of Verona Grove.

‘Don’t Ever Let Go’ was written while on a recent trip to Chicago & while feeling a little down, overlooking the city and it’s love vibe inspired me to keep fighting onward after a tough year of healing. This song is a reminder to myself never underestimate the power of words & music as it is the emotional canvas between adversity & new beginnings. Truly hope you enjoy. ~ On track again, RA

Please share.

DON’T EVER LET GO
Words & music by Rob Anthony

You say there’s more life to live
You say there’s more love to give
So hold on, no don’t
Don’t ever let go

You say once again I’ll feel
You say give it time you’ll heal
Just hold on, no don’t
Don’t ever let go

Feel the sunshine
See the rainbows
Feel the love shine down on you
See the world
Feel it’s love vibe
Hear it calling out on you

Now I know there’s more songs to share
Now I see there are those who care
So hold on, no don’t
Don’t ever let go

A transformational journey

April 29, 2013

Nothing tugs on the heartstrings more than an inspirational story of determination & dedication. Huge congrats to Mary Jones & Anagen Eleven. Humbled you used my song ‘We All Need’ as the background to your journey. One love, RA

This is a movie about a woman. Her name is Mary Jones. Her story, her struggle and her journey are the very subject matter of what makes up the word “inspiring“.

At the young age of 11 her best friend and cousin of 12 years old was abducted and her life was taken. This event not only robbed her of her best friend, but also of her innocence.

Mary was faced with the emotional and physical challenges of a dieting problem that she faced head strong in her 20’s. She set out with a goal of losing 100 pounds.

This is her journey.

11 Radio11Radio.com interviews Rob Anthony

By 11Radio.com

4/9/13 – Anthony opens up to Joe Carroccio of 11Radio.com about persistence, tenacity, finding your voice in an ever-changing world, reflecting how important the roots are and putting in your 10,000 hours.

Anthony’s take on finding the perfect song?

“I’m an artist, so I’m moody (ahaha…) and I think what I strive to have in a perfect song will probably change in three weeks and say I need a little bit of reggae flavor for the perfect song or I need a little Mellencamp for that perfect song. So maybe I’m just on my way to driving myself nuts like most artists.”

Also, I can honestly say nothing tugs on the heartstrings more than an inspirational story of achievement during life’s most difficult challenges. Humbled & honored Tanya chose my song ‘We All Need’ to share her story.

Once again I’m reminded never underestimate the power of words & music as it is the emotional canvas between musician, listener & life.

Overlooking downtown Chicago

Hope you’re all taking in the evening as much as I am. Much love from Chicago, Rob

WHERE I BELONG
Words & music by Rob Anthony

There’s something about the city
That I have grown to love
The small town boy inside of me
Sometimes wonders if it’s wrong
My mama always says,
“Now son the small town’s your real home”
But down in the city is where I belong

I grew up way to quickly
When I went on my own
Left home at the age of seventeen
I had to learn how to be strong
I met a lot of good-hearted people
Never felt I was alone
Now my hearts in the city where I belong

I settle down in the city
My two feet on the ground
I know it’s hard on my poor, poor mama
Her small town boy he’s gone
But I will never forget
From where it is I come from
But down in the city is where I belong

I DON’T NEED MUCH
Words & music by Rob Anthony

I’ve always been aware of it
I’ve been blessed with a whole lot of love
I’ve never turned my back to it
‘Cause I know there’d be no, no fun

Thank you above
For the freedom all the freedom and the love
Lord up above
I thank you for this beautiful day

I don’t need much
Just my friends and whole lot of love
I don’t need much
Just some good times and a whole lot of sun
There’s not much I need
Just my wine and to be free
I don’t need much, no, no, no…

I’ve always kept them close to me
All my friends, all my friends and family
They all mean so much to me
They’re all, they’re all I need

Thank you above
Thank you for the love
Lord up above
I thank you for this beautiful day

I don’t need much
Just my friends and whole lot of love
I don’t need much
Just some good times and a whole lot of sun
There’s not much I need
Just my wine and to be free
I don’t need much, no, no, no…

We All Need
Words & music by Rob Anthony

You’re so young so full of dreams
Everyone knew that you‘d succeed
Is that what it takes is to believe
You’re the example we all need

We all need a smile like yours on a rainy day
Like you we all need to believe
We all need someone like you
To show us how to believe
In our hopes and our dreams

When those clouds come rolling in
You’re the one who never grins
The smile you share it makes us see
You’re the example we all need

We all need a smile like yours on a rainy day
Like you we all need to believe
We all need someone like you
To show us how to believe
In our hopes and our dreams
