After the well received debut ArtRock album Dreamer in 2007, Anton has come back as an independent artist with an exciting new album entitled The Plight of Lady Oona which features a special guest appearance by Annie Haslam. The tracks were recorded in the US and The Netherlands during the last few years. Anton’s music portrays the quintessence of melodic progressive rock accompanied with lush orchestration, and this new release is certain to capture the listener’s attention once again. The 6 tracks on this release present the listener with wonderful melodies, guitars, textures and keyboards supported by herculean bass lines and drums. He does this with the help of some talented friends and musicians. All songs were composed and produced by Anton with the help of coproducer Rave Tesar. The CD comes with a beautiful 12 page full color booklet containing original digital artwork done by Anton.

Anton will be hosting a CD Release Party on April 26th, on the third floor of Connolly’s Bar (Klub 45 room) at 121 west 45th street (between 6th and B’way), New York City. from 2:00pm until 5:30pm. There will be a live acoustic performance with some members of the band. Come and join the fun !
