WOGB Artist Spotlight: Rob Anthony Revisits His Musical Roots

Music has the ability to reach people on the most intimate level.  It’s the cheerleader when things have gone right. The romantic poet swooning about love. The lyrical counselor during bouts of emotional pain. Music’s innate ability to connect emotionally to humanity gives the art a unique quality not found anywhere else. With that connection in mind, local singer-songwriter Rob Anthony is revisiting his own musical roots.

Anthony understands that his journey in music has been influenced by those who came before him. In order to grow in his own artistry, the songwriter has begun a journey paying homage to the legendary voices of his youth. According to Anthony, “I don’t think there are too many things I relate to more now-a-days than these words sang so truthfully…(robanthonymusic.com)” The Appleton singer-songwriter has released two videos thus far and intends on creating a documentary as well.

Anthony’s first video in the series is Bob Seger’s “Against the Wind”

Rob Anthony writes, “As a songwriter sometimes a song creeps up on you from your youth and connects with the most honest of places. It can infect you for hours, days, even months. Enjoy this rendition of ‘Against The Wind’.”

The artist explores the Steve Winwood classic “Can’t Find My Way Home” in his second video.

Anthony says of the song, ” As a singer-songwriter I’m really just trying to continue to grow in my artistry and in my depth of expression. To be recognized for the meanings within not only my songs but songs that have inspired me along the way. Enjoy my rendition ‘Can’t Find My Way Home’.”
