Anthony has been been writing songs for 20 years. His love of rhyming poetry and his eye for evocative detail go hand in hand with a love of Irish and American songwriting traditions of past and present. Using simple song structures as a starting point, Anthony builds layer upon layer, writing beautiful and intelligent songs that lift the heart and stir the imagination. Anthony's songs have been described by one listener as "philosophical ballads". His songs range, however, from philosophical to political, from romantic to nonsensical. They are songs for the quiet evening, the late night, the early morning.
Anthony has been a lecturer and researcher at the University of California, the University of Sheffield, and the University of Ulster. He currently holds the positions of Research Associate with the Smithsonian Center for Folklife and Cultural Heritage, Visiting Fellow at the University of Bristol Graduate School of Education, and Associate of the Center for Emergent Diplomacy.
Anthony has worked as a journalist, specialising in Irish traditional music, acoustic music, and arts journalism. He is also an experienced radio broadcaster with Sheffield Live!, Strule FM Omagh Community Radio, and most recently with Raidió Fáilte Irish language radio in Belfast.
Anthony's first collection of poetry, Chance Would Be A Fine Thing, was published by Clarion Publishing in 2012, and is available on Amazon and in No Alibis bookshop in Belfast.
