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.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 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.

Send me an email through 'Contact' button above and I'll get back to you asap.

    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.

    Antony (Shiny Glide) is an amazing artist, an inspired lyricist, a great composer, a stunnng singer, a versatile guitarist and a clever producer.
    I heard some works of his and think he created some real pieces of art, molded with the care of a poet and crafted by the big-experienced hands of an artisan.

    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!

  12. A: they are all great,it depends on the music taste and genre of the artists,anyone should make their own choice.What matters is not how famous or with how many famous people they worked with. What is relevant is how much passion and inspiration they can bring to your song.Plus not all that glitters is gold and there are many hidden treasures in this world.

  13. Q: Analog or digital and why?

  14. A: Digital, because it is cheaper,it doesn't need much space, and it works faster and better and it represents the natural evolution of making and sharing music and it is great for upcoming and indipendent artists. Analog can give a warmer sound, I expecially like analog mastering.

  29. Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
