James Anthony is an award winning vocalist with a beautiful unique tone. James' warmth and grit give a wonderful perspective to the songs he sings. With a 3 octave range, James believes his songs should be vocalized to tell a story.

Growing up in Las Vegas with his Irish/Italian family & relatives from the late 1960s - all who worked in the casino business - gave James the true classic Vegas traditions and surrounded him with the constant big band sounds of Sinatra, Elvis, Dino, Tom Jones, Bobby Darin, Doris Day and so on. This cat's got it in his blood, and man does he deliver!

As a result of a great love of the Great American Songbook, James performs with passion and works to keep his vocals in shape so as to bring the songs to life during his performances preserving the essence of swing jazz music.

James' history involved his family moving from Queens, NY, to Las Vegas in 1968 when he was 8 years old. His parents started him in music classes that year where he started playing drums and percussion in grade school and then began singing
throughout his four years in high school as a baritone/bass.
Singing within the varsity & male choirs gave James the of harmonic tones and the love of the voice.

After honorably serving in the U.S. Navy for 6 1/2 years, James returned to music to begin a successful music career in Los Angeles and Vegas. Performing as a session drummer/percussionist and backup singer with various record labels including RCA Records, GMA Agency artists during the 80s, James is no stranger to the music industry.

James began performing the jazz standards during 2009 and strangely enough has been dubbed "The Voice" from fellow
musicians and the Las Vegas Sun Newspaper. James' family's heritage and childhood surroundings of Vegas, gave him the natural ability to bring you into his heartfelt world through his voice.

Night, Guess I'll Hang My Tears Out To Dry and Old Man River to list a few. James brings back that sound from an era of when the song writers had "Authors Magic".
