Robert Anton: Bio
- "singing since He was a thought..."
Robert Anton is a singer/songwriter/actor and has been “singing since he was a thought”, or so his grandmother would tell you; and she should know. He grew up singing with choirs, quartets, and soloists at the pentecostal church where his grandma was the pastor. Not only did this instill in him a deep spiritual love of music and performing, it also gave him the courage to find his true calling at an early age. By the time Robert was a pre-teen, he knew he wanted to sing for his supper.
Consequently he went on to study music at the Cleveland School of Arts and Baldwin-Wallace College; then he moved to Chicago and finally New York City to pursue his dream. Once in New York, Robert quickly began performing in any venue available and landed his first big tour doing his favorite show, “Dreamgirls” with Miki Howard and other noted performers. Since then, he has toured and performed in over 10 countries and 150 cities in various shows and with headlining performers like Miki, Vanessa Bell-Armstrong, Altrina Grayson, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Corey Reynolds, Lisa Nicole-Carson, and more. Robert was also seen as a finalist on ‘It’s Showtime At the Apollo’ with Steve Harvey.
Currently Robert is promoting and celebrating his own releases through his company, playAnton productions. He’s released 3 CDs of original songs and has been performing and selling that material throughout the tri-state area and, internationally, via the internet. Robert also has current and pending songs on several compilation CDs in Germany, France, and South Africa. You can hear Robert on college and internet radio stations including Qnation.fm, WBAI, WNYC, WUSC, and more.
