Ches Anthony’s new album Just a Man is quintessential outlaw country with a modern twist.
Ches Anthony grew up in a small town in Saskatchewan surrounded by music and motocross. He learned to play harmonica, guitar, and piano at a young age. His father would bring him up on stage with his blues band where he performed for their fans.
Through his teenage age years, Ches formed a heavy rock band and wrote songs that would help him and others relate to the struggles of youth. In 2015, he went back to his country/blues roots and joined Sony-signed group Cold Creek County.
While honing his guitar skills playing in the band for several years, he began to listen to the heartache and emotion in old blues master’s voices like Howlin’ Wolf and Elmore James and the old country grit of Johnny Cash and Hank Williams, he started to develop his own writing and singing style.
Ches Anthony then decided to go solo in 2018.
Anthony has two albums out already and will have his third out at the beginning of this year. Two of Ches Anthony’s releases were written by Chris Stapleton, a true honor to Ches, as he is one of his biggest influences.
