Anton 10:30 - 11:30
Frontman of Anton & The Colts and solo artist, Anton has brought his music from Glasgow to Texas, Rome, Paris, New Orleans to London and back again. Living proof that success does not necessarily mean compromise, Anton has taken the music he loves – blues, country, folk, rock n roll – and shaped them into a potent, fresh, yet reassuringly familiar brew.
Blessed with a smoky, whiskey-soaked voice redolent of the great soul singers of Stax & Muscle Shoals, and armed with just an acoustic guitar & harmonica, Anton adds incisive lyrics to sweet melodies to create something that can reduce a rowdy bar to awed silence or rouse the most sedate venue to fever pitch.
Anton joined forces with The Colts in early 2014. Since then, they have played hundreds of gigs all over the country, hitting the UK festival circuit (Celtic Connections, the Merchant City Festival, Eden, Belladrum), playing sold out shows at Glasgow's King Tut's, Stereo & Nice & Sleazy's and recording their first EP (6:45 & 450 Down).
Along with band duties in the UK, Anton has had 2 successful solo tours through Europe and 1 in the US, and is currently demoing solo material that he plans to release summer '19.
Debut single, 'the summer that could never be outdone'
