Anthony Gomes is an artist who has fused the sum of his influences into something that is truly fresh and exciting. Drawing from Soul, Gospel, Rock, and R&B, then blending it all together with blues, Gomes has created a sound that is uniquely his own. In the process, he is leaving his imprint on American Roots music.

It is rare when an artist can tap into several styles of music and create a sound that has focus and signature, but this Nashville based artist manages to mix up his American Roots styles, compromising nothing. The cross-cultural musical reflection provided by his hometown of Toronto, Canada, along with the first-hand tutelage from his musical mentors that came with a relocation to Chicago, have undoubtedly played a prominent role in influencing Anthony’s sound.

In addition to his talents as a creative musician, Gomes has earned the reputation as an tireless performer. His live shows often leave his audiences in foot-stomped, hand-clapped, danced-out fits of exhaustion. Gomes struts and growls like a preacher on Sunday, and plays guitar in a manner that makes one wonder if he met the devil at the crossroads.

Anthony’s first recording, released in 1998 on the Urban Electric label, Blues In Technicolor, was a highly flammable mix of stone-cold blues-rock inclinations. In 2000, at a time when most of his contemporaries were playing it safe releasing blues-rock CDs, Gomes made a gutsy move and released Sweet Stringin’ Soul, a predominantly acoustic blues CD favoring heavy gospel and country blues accents. His third CD, Unity, on 33rd Street Records, is a gathering together of the musical impressions, Anthony holds in high esteem. Unity was produced by Jim Gaines and is an American Roots Rock masterpiece. ~intrepidartist.com
