Bio

Heath Anthony is an Alt/Folk singer songwriter from Adelaide Australia. Heath writes heart felt tales of love, life & loss from his formative years growing up in Adelaide. Heath recorded an EP called Places We’ve Been in 2012 at Chapel Lane Studios. This recording was a jumpstart in Heath’s musical journey. The track “Sailors Grave” from this EP was later released with Impress magazine (VIC). As Heaths style has evolved another recording was inevitable. Heath has recently completed a raw EP recording at a home studio in the suburbs of Adelaide. The EP is titled Burnt Vinyl & Second Hand Smoke and was a limited release in August 2013. Most copies being sold within the first few weeks of release. Heath has been playing a number of local shows around Adelaide at such venues as The Metropolitan Hotel, The Crown & Anchor, The Enigma Bar, The Exeter, The Grace Emily & The Wheatsheaf. In 2012 Heath gained support slots for such acts as The Siren Tower (WA) & Chasing Ghosts (VIC) while touring in Adelaide. In 2013 Heath followed this up with supports for Chasing Ghosts (VIC) and Skeleton Club (ADL) as well as playing with a number of other local talents. 2013 has also seen Heath venture to Melbourne for his first interstate performance while supporting Wil Wagner (The Smith Street Band) at the Reverence Hotel. Heath will be heading back to Melbourne later this year to be apart of Bonananza playing alongside Lincoln Le Fevre, Mara Threat, Toy Boats, Lucy Wilson, The Grenadiers, Shadow League and Adeline Pines to name a few. While in Melbourne Heath will also be supporting Darren Gibson & Tim Hampshire on a second (VIC) show. Contact Info: Email: heathanthonymusic@hotmail.com Online: facebook.com/heathanthonymusic

Be careful that you don't fall into having your folk punk songs being straight recounts - "this happened / then this happened / then this happened / end of song" - because you've got a real knack for chorus melody.
