Anthony David has always resisted categorization by creating music that is on the one hand diverse and on the other unique even when working within a genre. Yet he has been successful, scoring hits, including a duet with India.Arie and a #1 radio hit at urban radio, defying the conventional wisdom that one has to conform to succeed. Building from the grassroots up, he has mesmerized audiences at times with just his voice and an acoustic guitar and at other times with full band and hip-hop beats. The creator of most of his own material, he nonetheless has no problem throwing delightful covers of some of his favorite songs into a set–all tied together with the warm, engaging resonance of his voice. On August 26th, Shanachie Entertainment will release Anthony David’s fifth album of new material, The PowerFUL Now, his first new release in four years. Featuring duets with female artists Carmen Rogers, Mylah and Reesa Renee (his collaborations with female artist have been a hallmark of his career) and stellar production from producers as Shannon Sanders and Eddie “Gypsy” Stokes, The PowerFUL Now, may be Anthony David’s finest, most wide-ranging artistic statement to date.
“This album I thought of as if I had no other album,” Anthony notes. “I didn’t have many expectations. So any idea I had that I might have thought ‘oh, they may not like that from me,’ I did it anyway! I definitely wanted to work with the sounds that are current but in my own way. I’m in the soul vein and I don’t mind the title of neo-soul; it conflicts with what’s popular in black music right now, which is either way ratchet or super retro. I have no interest in having all these sounds available and making something that sounds exactly like the 70’s. But I also don’t want to purposely make noise which some things I hear seem to be doing in attempt to being
“Beautiful Problem,” the lead single, sounds like nothing else on the radio. It opens with a portentous piano figure, moves into an evocative melancholy melody then a hard kick drum kicks in with a hip-hop inflected bassline until it all opens up into the chorus repeating the enigmatic title phrase; the chorus is inspired by a chorus in an India.Arie song. The inventive video features a cameo from India, with whom Anthony has written and performed with over the years. “She’s my sister, period,” Anthony says. “We always gotta show solidarity in what we represent in this thing!” Anthony adds, “Producer Shannon Sanders wrote that one but it matched something I would say. The production has some sonic elements from EDM, parts of the genre that I like – the odd drum sounds, the manipulation of vocals, drops, stuff like that. Lyrically I take it as a kind of existential crisis that kinda resolves in taking the good with the bad and ultimately just being happy to experience any of it at all.”
If it is unusual for a singer-songwriter to incorporate elements of EDM into his work, Anthony’s favorite style of EDM is equally interesting. “It’s basically Afrobeat, the current sound coming out of West Africa, mostly Nigeria and Ghana,” Anthony says, “and it is the best Black music coming out right now in my opinion. I can’t stand our hip-hop right now cuz it’s really dark, depressing, and straight out stupid. In Afrobeat they are making fun music that, at worst, just talks about going out and having a good time..none of that murder, misogynistic, craziness a lot of American hip hop stuff is on.”
Anthony David was born Anthony Harrington in Savannah, Georgia. A Gulf War vet, he began writing songs during a stint in the military in Iraq, where as a paratrooper with the 82nd airborne he took part in 28 combat missions. Writing songs was a life- affirming act while facing the real possibility of dying.
He got involved in the music scene in Atlanta in the late 1990s, meeting a then-unknown singer-songwriter India.Arie; they became friends and collaborators, with Anthony co-writing songs on her first three albums, which spawned a number of Grammy nominations, singing back-up for her on tour and eventually opening for her. This visibility led to the release of Anthony’s debut album Three Chords & The Truth released in 2004 on the Atlanta independent Brash Records, carving out a unique lane with his personalized brand of acoustic soul. Extensive touring revealed Anthony to be a free-wheeling, engaging performer, able to hold a crowd with just the sound of his voice and an acoustic guitar. A second independent album, The Red Clay Chronicles, led to a deal with Universal Records, which released Acey Duecy, a compilation of the best tracks from his first two albums, yielding a hit duet with India.Arie and a Grammy nomination. Thanks to the release of his albums by labels in the UK and Japan, Anthony toured extensively abroad, building an international audience. His star continued to rise as he signed a deal with Purpose Records/eOne Entertainment which led to the release of his fourth album As Above, So Below in 2011, which featured such guest vocalists as Algebra, Phone of Little Brother and Shawn Stockman of Boyz II Men; his duet with Algebra, “4Evermore,” became a #1 hit at adult urban radio while the reggae/Latin-tinged “Body Language” tore up dance floors in the UK. A tour in Kenya inspired Anthony to become part of the Give Africa Hope campaign that brought awareness to famine in East Africa. He shot the video for the title track of the album in Kenya. He also became involved with AWOL (All Walks of Life), an arts program for children in his hometown of Savannah, pushing to establish it in Atlanta in 2013. He quickly followed the release of As Above, So Below with Love Out Loud, another album on Purpose/eOne. Signing with Shanachie Entertainment in 2015, the first fruit of that deal is his new album The PowerFUL Now.
In a time when the music scene is starved for authentic voices, Anthony David stands out as an artist who is honest, down-to-earth, delightfully idiosyncratic and warmly engaging at the most basic human
“I decided to make ‘secular hymns’ that are geared towards being proactive, building and looking forward,” Anthony asserts. ” Constantly being reactive and on your back foot isn’t what I’m about. For anyone who’s into that, here ya go! Take advantage of the time and place you’re in. There’s plenty to be sad about but also plenty to be excited about.”
Dwight & Nicole
Dwight & Nicole’s unique sound is an inspiring mashup of folk, blues, pop, jazz, gospel and reggae, yet can’t be categorized easily, and that’s fine.
Dwight & Nicole’s performances have inspired comparisons to some of the greats, but it’s their fresh blend of spirited blues, rock and gospel that is propelling them to make their own mark on the music world.

Afton is a nationwide concert production company, producing all-ages concerts as well as providing online resources to support artist promotion. We seek to assist local artists with concert promotion due to our own experiences as performing artists, where we were forced to provide solutions for ourselves. We now offer these same solutions to the bands that we book on our shows. Our company was founded in 2004, in the hopes of booking shows for bands that our staff members were performing in at the time. Though very few of us still perform we are dedicated to the success of the artists that we work with.

Luke Wade describes himself as a pop singer/songwriter with strong Americana influences.
He was born April 14, 1983 in the small rural town of Dublin, Texas. He is the youngest of four siblings born to Texas-based artists Bob Stuth-Wade and Wanda Wade. Wade says that growing up a “peculiar person in a peculiar place” gave him a distinct music experience with the sights and sounds of country music, but having out-of-the-box hippy parents made for something truly unique.
“I didn’t fit in and so I did a lot of soul searching as a kid, and that molded my song writing experience.”
His father is an artist known for his expansive Texas landscapes and his mother is a dancer, painter, yoga instructor, and natural healer. Wade was drawn to music at an early age and began dancing at his mother’s dance studio when he was 2 years old and continued dancing until he was 12. His early memories of musical influences go back to his mother’s dance studio where he listened to old records while cleaning up for his weekly allowance. He says he vividly remembers fashioning a radio antenna out of aluminum foil and a clothes hanger to get a radio signal strong enough to pick up one of his favorite stations, The Edge, out of Dallas/Ft. Worth.
While Wade says he lived a simple small town life, he is no stranger to the heartache he writes about in his music. As a teenager, Wade suffered a severe injury after being shot in his right eye with a paintball in May 1997. The injury left him with partial blindness and no depth perception, so he had to quit most of the sports he played at school. In high school, Wade picked up cross country track but suffered a heat stroke his junior year. That incident took him out of all sports in school, so he picked up the guitar and taught himself to play. “I started playing guitar and writing to find the common ground between myself and the people around me. The harder I worked to figure out who I was, the more alone I felt, and music was my way to connect.” But it’s obvious music was what he was meant to pursue. He persevered and began playing cover songs and writing his own music in 2000. He played his first open mic in 2001 and started finding small venues to play live shows in 2003.
During his time in college at Tarleton State University in Stephenville, Texas, he formed his first band, Hurt Street. His brother David was also a member of the band. After college, Wade formed Luke Wade and No Civilians, and the band released their first album, “Tomorrows Ghosts,” in 2010. Wade’s second album, “The River,” was released in April 2014 after Wade raised the money for the album through a successful Kickstarter campaign. His third studio full length album, “Only Ghosts,” is expected to be released January 2017.
Wade compares his sound to soulful crooners and songwriters like Ray LaMontagne, James Bay, Adele (to a certain extent) and Sam Smith, but a little more distinctly American.
While Wade continues to call himself a Texas-based musician, he gained national/international attention on Season 7 of NBC’s reality singing show, “The Voice.” He finished in the top eight with Team Pharrell.
Wade has headlined more than a thousand live shows and toured and performed with Train, Toad the Wet Sprocket, Rusted Root, Kris Allen, Casey Abrams, Patti LaBelle, Andy Grammer, MKTO, Train, Daughtry, Blue October, Green River Ordinance, Ingrid Michelson, Jerry Jeff Walker, OAR and David Cook. As the official 2015-16 Komen Artist, he released “Ain’t No Mountain High Enough” with Mia Z to benefit Susan G. Komen and the fight against breast cancer. Wade has also performed the halftime show of the Denver Broncos game at Mile High Stadium, AT&T Stadium during the Dallas Cowboy game and performed the National Anthem at Texas Motor Speedway, nationally televised on NBC. He has also been recognized by the City of Fort Worth for his charitable work with Cook Children’s Medical Center.
A tattoo can say a lot about a person. Matt McAndrew’s first ink speaks volumes about his dedication and passion for music.
“Since high school, my goal in life was to get signed to a record label, so I got an empty box tattooed on my wrist,” he explains. “When I got signed, the plan was to tattoo a check mark inside of it. It’s a reminder of what I’ve been working towards forever.”
Matt picked up his first guitar at the age of eleven. As a teen he found inspiration in the likes of Radiohead and Modest Mouse, and he began pursuing his goal to become a musician. Off the strength of his dynamic voice, he was accepted into University of the Arts in Philadelphia, majoring in vocal performance. As soon as he graduated, he increased that momentum, independently releasing his debut full-length, View of the Pines, in spring 2014. NBC’s The Voice scouted him shortly thereafter. He chose Adam Levine as a coach, and he vaulted to international stardom over the course of season seven.
“At the beginning of the show, I was so nervous,” he admits. “By the time the finale came around, I became completely comfortable. I learned how to adapt into any environment and feel like I had a place there. You can be a big fish in whatever pond you’re in. I thrived under pressure. I feel prepared for anything now because of that experience.”
Matt emerged in second place, but he won the love and support of audiences everywhere. His cover of Hozier’s “Take Me to Church” landed in the Top 5 of the iTunes Overall Top Songs Chart, while his original single “Wasted Love” not only debuted Top 5, but immediately clinched the #1 spot upon release. The track would go on to sell over 100,000 digital downloads in less than 24 hours, making a seismic impact on the industry on par with that of the year’s other massive hit Taylor Swift’s “Shake It Off.”
With its elegant piano, distinct melody, and impassioned performance, “Wasted Love” [Republic Records] formally announces Matt’s arrival as a striking singer and powerful pop presence.
“On the surface, it’s about a relationship that didn’t work out,” he goes on. “I like to think of things in terms of how they relate to my musical journey though. In that sense, the song is about not having your dreams come to fruition the way you want them to. Love, talent, and passion are wasted. It really strikes a chord with me.”
In addition to getting that “check mark,” Matt’s in the midst of preparing new music for 2015 and beyond.
“I have a vision and direction for my songs,” he leaves off. “I know who I am as a person and a musician, and everything has helped me expand the definitions of both of those things. My dream hasn’t changed. It’s just gotten bigger.”
