Victor Anthony

Genre: Roots, Singer Songwriter, Storyteller

Singer/songwriter and photographer Victor Anthony was born in Nashville in 1952. Old friends joke that he came into the world with a guitar in one hand and a camera in the other. Victor has made his living in the arts for the last thirty years. In 2007, he and his wife immigrated to Canada from Cumberland County, Tennessee which was culture shock to be sure, but the good kind.

In March of 2015, Victor released his first Canadian CD of original material, Mystery Loves Company. His musical style is firmly based in the roots tradition of the American South, but the lyrics are up-to-date vignettes of life and love, full of rich visual imagery and simple truth. Recently Victor was honoured to have three of his songs recorded by Canadian music icons, David Gogo, Gary Fjellgaard, and Valdy.

Another great moment Victor’s had since moving to Canada was when he and his wife officially became new citizens. At the swearing in ceremony, the judge told the 93 candidates that one of their responsibilities as new Canadians was to share their native culture with their new neighbours. That moment was the genesis for Victor’s latest recording, Those Nashville Blues, a collection of twelve traditional folksongs from his home state of Tennessee, arranged and performed with his unique flair.

For more than ten years Victor toured the United States and Europe, and now he’s ready to take on Canada—traveling around his new country, meeting people, and making music.

Victor’s music is distilled Tennessee whisky, uniquely blended, expertly aged, and then finely cut with Canadian coolness, to taste. Sip slowly and often. – Bruce Mason, freelance music journalist.

Victor touches the gritty heart of American music with his fingers and his words. – Bob Bossin, Stringband

The real deal. – Gary Fjellgaard, Juno winning Canadian singer/songwriter

His singing, guitar playing and arrangements are rooted in places like New York City hipster jazz joints and Mississippi Delta blues road houses and filtered through a songwriting palette that people like Randy Newman and Tom Waits have painted from. – Mike Regenstreif
