Brian Anthony Interview (pg. 2)

Sindy: How did you break into the music industry?
Brian Anthony: I pretty much broke into it when I was a kid. I just kind of feel like, out of the gate, I started singing and dancing and entertaining people. But really, I was doing a lot of musical theatre when I was a kid and one of my friend's dad had a recording studio. I played piano as a child and I always wanted to record, so I went into the studio one day and was like, "Oh my God, this is a great environment!" and it's just the place I wanted to be and I was like 13 years old. So it started there and cultivated me as a producer and a songwriter and a singer and that's kind of where I started honing my talents.

Sindy: Who were your musical inspirations growing up?
Brian Anthony: I had a lot of musical inspirations growing up. As a kid, I listened to a lot of my brother's music because he introduced a lot of new music to me that I wasn't aware of. So a lot of people I grew up listening to were Prince and George Michael and Billy Joel and Elton John. They're the icons and legends of today. I'm a huge fan of Prince and George Michael and actually you can hear it in a lot of my music.

Sindy: So they still influence you today?

Brian Anthony: They do still influence me today. I still listen to a lot of Prince and a lot of George Michael. Actually, some of today's newer artists... I'm really interested in Daniel Bedingfield's music. He's someone who started out in the UK and has had a very successful pop career. And he kind of came out of dance like I'm doing, like this remix project is coming from a dance genre. And he was a pop artist that splintered into dance and went back into [KWLINK6558]pop[/KWLINK]. He's a songwriter, singer, producer and that's what I am so I'm interested in his music cuz he's just like me and his music is amazing. Another guy I listen to is Robin Thicke. I'm inspired by his music because he plays piano like I do, and he has a hand in every part and facet of his career from songwriting to producing. Have you ever seen him perform? It's awesome!

Sindy: I haven't, but I definitely want to! So do you plan to go on tour?
Brian Anthony: With the remix project, I hope to be doing a lot of club dates to promote the single. I think because it's a project that incorporates different mixes, like I have a hip hop remix, a bunch of dance remixes and the regular pop version, I'll be able to go into different types of clubs and promote the music, hopefully everywhere. I'm just ready to go and do it already, ya know?

Sindy: What’s up next for you?
Brian Anthony: Right now, I'm trying to focus on the remix project and release it to radio. I'm doing this call just before I go into final rehearsals for a music video for WhatsitgonnaB? (I'm So Ready). We're doing an amazing music video with lots of cool special effects and it's basically me and my dancers dancing on green screen and Fox is incorporating portions of the Fantastic Four 2: Rise of the Silver Surfer movie in it, so it's going to be awesome and I've got six great dancers, so I'm getting ready to shoot that!

Sindy: Sounds exciting! Thanks for talking to us. We're all looking forward to seeing and hearing more Brian Anthony!

Secret Seven, because Harry Potter is a bit too overrated for me. Both series are awesome, though!
