Anthony in book store

“In a lot of big cities, it’s really hard to make a group of supportive friends who are really talented at a certain art, but here in Spokane, I found that the poetry – spoken word poetry – scene was very quick to embrace a singer/songwriter. When I watched how they delivered their poems with such clarity and honesty and passion…not writing things to be popular or well liked but writing things from their heart and just like burning when they recited them… it’s like falling in love. So, yeah, that happened here in Spokane when I was like 18, so I soaked up as much of that as I could and took it to the big city” – Anthony, Spokane
