Greetings! Paul Anthony here. Want to drop well-written original music? I'm your guy! My recent songwriting work on the Wailers' new album "One World" has jus scored me my first Grammy Nom, and I'd love to help you do the same for your next project! I can also lay down a solid demo vocal for you to pitch or help with some minor arranging. Link me!
My name is Paul Anthony. I'm a singer, rapper, songwriter, performer based in South FL with 20 years of experience in my craft. My love for music and impacting peoples' lives positively with it is what drives me to continue creating. I have been writing and recording my own music since age 15. Since then I've written with many notable artists like: my father Pat Satchmo, Maurice Gregory, Inner Circle, Emilio Estefan, The Wailers, Roy G, Solstarr and more! My recent songwriting work with Emilio Estefan and The Wailers on their new album "One World" has just been honored with a Grammy Nomination!
I am mainly a Dancehall/Reggae/Pop artist, coming from a Jamaican background. However, I have an ear for many genres. I'm confident I can help you to craft a commercially viable song for your next project. Just send me an instrumental, let me know your ideas for the direction if any, and I'll do the rest!
Also, I can lay down a demo for something you've written. Need something done in a rap style or sung? I can help you!
Finally, I'm obsessed with vocals being perfectly on beat and hitting the pockets. So I can help with that too for your projects.
Feel free to send me a message and let's get to work!
I'd love to hear about your project. Click the 'Contact' button above to get in touch.
