The first son of two musicians, Antony Field was surrounded by talent growing up. His father was the founding member of Cold Blood, an R&B band of the 60‚s San Francisco Experience -his first album produced by the late Bill Graham- and his mother was an accomplished jazz/blues vocalist. Though he studied classical piano for over 6 years, it was not until as a senior in high school that Antony had a hint of his future.
“At the time, I was very in to U2. I remember reading about Bono’s respect and admiration for Frank Sinatra, and the first duets album had just been released. Something inside just clicked when I heard Sinatra sing. From that moment on I started collecting more and more of his albums, as well as singers of that same pop standard style: from Bobby Darin, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Mel Tormé, and Joe Williams to Ella Fitzgerald, Nancy Wilson, and Shirley Horn.”
It was not until the urging from friends and family that Antony decided to take vocal lessons. At the age of 21, and in the fourth year of college at UC Berkeley, his future was about to take shape. “I knew right from the start, that if I was going to start singing, it was something that I not only wanted to be good at, I wanted to be great. By the time I finished my degree in Architecture, I already knew that the only career I wanted was as a singer.”
After college, Antony moved to Los Angeles to pursue his dreams. He has pursued his craft wherever and whenever possible; sitting in with musicians, and eventually landing gigs around town. In the winter of 2001, an opportunity came along to submit some of his original material to a movie project. The movie, “Totally Blonde”, with singer Michael Bublé, featured two of his songs and gave him the confidence that he could not only sing the music he loved, he could write as well. “It was a great experience. To write and hear my songs in a movie was really exciting. The feedback I received was overwhelming, and really was what prompted me to envision doing an album with my own songs comprising a majority of the work.”
A year later, and with more experience under his belt, Antony decided it was time to undertake the challenge of making his own album. The result is a blend of a few of the standards he loves and a collection of original material that will introduce Antony as a talented singer and a songwriter who will impact the industry for years to come.
