Canadian Reggae singer Tony Anthony is determined to make his mark on the local music scene. The three time Juno Awards nominee is currently in the island promoting his album titled Live To The Fullest.

The 14 track album, which was released in October, 20014 by his Phylani Music imprint is his second full length project.

“I’ve been in Jamaica for the past three weeks promoting my album. So far I’ve done a number of interviews and I’ve also done some performances. The reception I’ve received has been very positive,” said the artiste.

Can I Get Some Sleep & Love Don’t Live Here Anymore ft. Nadera are two of his songs that have found favor with local music fans, according to the St. Catherine, born singer, whose real name is Mark Bennett.

“I’m getting great feedback from the radio DJs about these two songs. The response I’m getting from the streets, about them is also very encouraging.”

Tony Anthony migrated from Jamaica to Canada in 1992, he is widely recognized as one of the top Reggae singers in that country.

“When I moved to Canada I teamed up with a group of musicians and formed a band called Tatix. The band was a huge success, in 1996 we earned a Juno Award nomination with an album called Time Bomb. Although we didn’t win this was a very wonderful achievement,” he said.

Tony Anthony was recruited to be a part of the Soul group, After Dark in 1997. During his stint with After Dark he wrote and sang on several of the group’s biggest hits including Took Me For Granted, which was very popular on the Dance Music scene in Canadian and Europe.

In 2007 Tony Anthony decided to launch his solo career and return to his Reggae Roots. Since then he has cemented his place on the Canadian Reggae scene with the release of hit singles such as Million Chance, Bad News Again, Mark of the Beast and Yuh Nuh Simple.
