Anthony - Singer/Songwriter, Musician, Producer, Video Director
610 is the artist name for singer/songwriter Anthony, who creates/records/produces original Alt-Rock songs and occasionally performs live with various musician friends. Anthony started playing guitar at a young age and was touring regionally in a tribute band before making the difficult decision to leave the band and start writing original songs. As time and life progressed, Anthony used music to express suppressed feelings that were hard to release. After releasing several EPs of original material, Anthony has crossed over to the world of video to add another dimension to his story telling and will continue to write/record/direct stories using one or both channels. It's all about the story!
