Anthony Preston (US)
Before Anthony even came into this world, he had a glaring endorsement from one of the world’s most popular and talented performers: Sammy Davis, Jr. “I have a picture of Mr. Davis rubbing my mother’s stomach while she was pregnant with me in Hawaii. He told her that I would have a career in music one day.” And he's proving himself to be the ultimate triple threat: a singing songwriter and producer who’s not afraid to take his turn spinning memorable dance tunes deep into the night. Known for his electric melodies, clever lyrics, and innovative concepts, Anthony's style is nothing less than the perfect fusion of soul with a bright, electro-pop sound. “I was invited to lunch with Mr. Gordy after he heard one of my songs... He told me ‘this is good’... You’re gonna make it... Best day ever! ”, he recalls. A lifelong lover of the EDM and club music scene, he was fortunate to work with super producer/DJ’s including Grammy winners David Guetta, Afrojack and Cedric Gervais, as well as legendary dance/club vocalists Chris Willis, Ultra Nate and Crystal Waters early in his career. These successes caught the attention of the Grammy-winning frontman of the Black Eyed Peas, will.i.am who set Anthony off on the next phase of his career writing and producing for mainstream acts including Britney Spears, T.I., Pitbull, Nicole Scherzinger, Eros Ramozatt, Jennifer Hudson, Cody Wise and others. He's since joined forces with Grammy-winner Andre Lindal (Maroon 5, Justin Bieber, Britney Spears, Monica, Kelly Clarkston) to form A2 Productions, a full-service music and creative production house.
