Antony Venneri (Shiny Glide) on SoundBetter

My name is Antony Venneri,aka Shiny Glide. I am a singer songwriter, guitar player,multiinstrumentalist and producer. I believe this is the best time for music and indipendent artist, because in this digital age,recording and sharing music has never been easier and more fun.I I offer great taste and musical ear,passion and satisfaction guaranteed.

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 a recording artist and songwriter and I wrote, recorded and played guitars and produced most of my albums under the nome of Shiny Glide and I also make most of the music videos for my songs. I am into alternative rock,psychedelic rock, lofi and dream pop. I care about the client satisfaction,so I need to know about what type of sound they want to achieve,which artists are they inspired by and if they have any reference tracks.
