Having come from a background of anger, depression and anxiety Antonâs music documents his exploration, struggle and insights gained in his ongoing battle with these obstacles. Having completed psychology studyâs and with a fascination for both eastern and western philosophies Antonâs lyrical content reflects his preoccupation with the intricacies of the mind. Communicating at a deep level with the listener through the use of metaphor Antonâs lyrics both stimulates and challenge. Donât be fooled though, these tunes donât wallow in a dark quagmire of despair! Antonâs work resonates of healing and hope. If anything they tend to outline the approach to life in which Anton has by and large come out of his misery and found happiness. Not all Antonâs material revolves around the âpsychâ however. The other subject extensively explored by Anton is of course love and listeners will find a healthy splattering of love songs throughout Antonâs catalogue. However even Antonâs love songs are usually still imbedded with deeper meaning and purpose. No opportunity appears to have been missed to explore the depths and richness of life. This is an aspect of Antonâs work which makes it such a fulfilling experience and like a breath of fresh air amongst the oceans of commercial fodder that floods the music market. Antonâs material tends to appeals to the discerning listener who is in search of something with a little more depth in the listening experience. Of course if all this thinking is not your cup of tea Antonâs music is also full of addictive hooks, an array of musical instruments from traditional to electronic and of course the smooth crooning melodies unique only to Anton.
Based in Brisbane Australia where he lives with his wife and two children Anton produces all his own material in his home studio, releasing albums under his record label âBugEye Recordsâ. He plays throughout the East coast of Australia but mainly concentrates his efforts on the recording side of the music industry these days. To Anton the real gold in his musical experience lies in the creative process itself (both recording and live performance) and what he gains through this process. For Anton life is about the moment, and to him music is a powerful catalyst to bring him into that moment, the worries of the past and future disappearing into the ether. Another aspect that stands out about Antonâs music which follows on from his creative approach is the amazing diversity and originality of Antonâs catalogue. Not feeling the need to produce or conform to any particular genre or audience, Antonâs music wanders freely from camp to camp. It encompasses pop, rock, folk and jazz with a uniquely Anton angle bonding all the elements together with a general air of honesty to them. Songs vary from the moody to the highly uplifting but always with a message of hope and a depth that feeds the soul. His music has been compared to Nick Cave, The Dirty Three, Tom Waits, Ben Harper and Pink Floyd but is at the same time often hard to categorise.
âMountain to Dustâ is Antonâs latest offering and marks a maturing and crystallisation of Antonâs style and sound. It is Antonâs third solo released EP. The title relates to the process of mountains turning to dust and is analogous to the passing of time and the impermanence of all things. A folk sound predominates throughout the album largely due to the heavy use of the âItalian mandolinâ with strong elements of pop and rock giving it a contemporary air and feel. It is a beautiful album with a raw edge combining delicate love songs with backings of violins and cellos with stomping ballads featuring distorted harmonicas and screaming guitars speaking of murder and deceit. Full of addictive hooks, swooning melodies and lyrics with meaning and purpose, it is truly an album to be treasured.
