“David’s keyboard artistry makes for very pleasant listening as well as moving you at the same time…” writes Soul Music HQ of Smooth Jazz/Classic Soul Artist David Anthony, whose musical journey began in Chattanooga, Tennessee. Accomplished early as a trumpeter, David transitioned to keyboards where he honed his current “Kool & Smooth” style.

“His vocal style doesn’t remind me of anybody else either plus he’s written all the music, lyrics, and arrangements himself – accomplished…” continues Soul Music HQ about David’s vocal and composition prowess, which began with formal musical training at Tennessee
 State University i
n Nashville, Tennessee. It was there that David began performing professionally with “The Montclair's,” a vocal group based out of St. Louis, Missouri. That R&B group enjoyed a string of regional hits with lead singer Phil Perry going on to enjoy a successful solo career.

David is also the musical director for Rock & Roll Hall of Famers, 
The Impressions, where his arranging and composition skills were showcased when in 2007 The Impressions celebrated 50 years in the entertainment business with a sold-out concert backed by The Chattanooga Symphony Orchestra. David’s arrangements of the Curtis Mayfield songbook reverberated throughout the Tivoli Theatre Performance Hall. David has shared the stage with a number of different artists and continues to perform solo, and with his band, The Gentlemen’s Jazz Quartet. His musical journey continues.
