For an independent artist, having a global fan base isn’t just about sharing your music, its about creating authentic connections and finding new mediums through which to create those connections. In additional to playing online concerts and at venues throughout the world, Anthony has developed a unique method of direct engagement that ensures his music inspires and electrifies as well as grows genuine connections between his music and his listeners.
You may not know his name, but you’ve likely heard his voice. Born in a small town in southeastern Australia, Anythony Snape grew up engrossed in music and theater. He’s since performed with some of Australia’s and the world’s greatest artists, such as Tommy Emmanuel, Rick Price, Marcia Hines, Ian Moss, Vanessa Amorosi, James Morrison, John Paul Young, and more. His music has been featured on news outlets, radio stations, and at festivals and venues throughout the world. His most recent album, Resonate, was produced by Grammy winner Andy Hunt (Good Charlotte, Smash Mouth, Olivia Newton-John) and was crowd-funded to a whopping $26,000 in 30 days.
About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
