Antony Venneri (Shiny Glide) on SoundBetter

My name is Antony Venneri,I am a singer songwriter, guitar player and my stage name is Shiny Glide.I write,record and produce most of my songs.I believe this is the best time for music and indipendent artist, because in this digital age,recording and sharing music is just great and fun.If you like my work I will make you sound as great as possible.

I have a natural talent for music and an absolute ear.I have been writing recording and performing since I was a teenager.I am mostly a recording artist and songwriter and I wrote, recorded and played guitars and produced most of my albums and I also make most of the music videos for my songs. I am into alternative rock,psychedelic,indie rock,blues rock,ballads and dream pop. Music is my life and passion,I give all my energies and time to music.As an artist I know how important is to get into the spirit and the essence of the song to find the right mood and the right sound for it rather than showing off flashy techniques. Once I get into that creative flows musical ideas will come out naturally and then I will make them all sound as polish and as clear as possible.I would put the same care and passion into any artist song just as if it was mine, because as a musician and an artist I know how hard it is the business and the art of music and new and upcoming artists deseve the best attention and consideration.

    I was so happy that Shiny Glide hit me again for another song, this one has strong lyrics with a cool beat and a dreamy melody. He gives me the freedom to be creative with my bass and that's the kind of work that I enjoy the most.
    Highly recommend

    Antony is a very talented guitar player/producer and I am very happy that he invited me to record on his music. In Antony's production, you can hear a lot of guitars but this song was more synth-based.
    It was fun playing on this song and also Antony was a true professional, I would love to work with him in the future. ^_^

    Look out for Shiney Glide we've completed enough tracks for an album, this guy is a dedicated unique indy-rock artist with his own sound and great songs. Should be an example for any artist to follow, steady persistance is where its at! I'm sure you'll be hearing about this guy soon.

  12. Review by Dave Easley

    Antony Venneri has an immense catalog of creative, heart-felt material. I became a fan back in the days of "Saxophone of Light", "Legitimize All", and "Time", truly timeless compositions that capture some of very deep and elemental yearnings of the human soul. I'm always excited to hear the latest sprouting shoots from the fertile mind of Antony Venneri!
