Buddy Bee Anthony

 My stage name is Buddy Bee Anthony. I am primarily a lyricist singer.songwriter. 
in it for the long haul.
I am, in many ways, a charming, entertaining well dressed,
double dealin' unhealthy for you,

lyin cheatin', unreliable, low rent,piece of
trailer trash. Still  I hold tight to a tasty 
vantage point all my  own.
I  write pieces of my mind, heart and soul..
and how I put this onto paper would take years 
of study for your best minds to figure out.
     Much of my work is hopefully as intelligently thought out 
as possible accompanied by a distinct, rhythm, or flow, a cadence.
A good deal of it rhymes.
However . someday I'd also like to be known to have written
a  great piece of work, which goes double platinum 
without a a stitch of rhyme in it,
Spin one more fine trick on the universe.
I consider my self a punk shock,
rockin, story tellin. crooner, who growls out the news, like a,
town crier.
Song is my vehicle. Music is the delivery system... Or the other way around.....
I am a working performance artist, entertainer, 
I can make something sound gorgeous, and significant musically from,
a bag of dust like a lot of musicians. But, I don't like being assigned the term musician
since musician sounds scarily too much like Politician...
Agenda and I don't go together.
We separate out like oil and water.  ,
I have grown into my musical influences who at least for the moment, are:
Prince, Hank Williams, the Stones, Fred Eaglesmith, There's a slew of folks I have benefited from as a performing songwriting, singer. Some I don't remember their names, but I know their songs.  There of course is
Johnny  and Glenn Campbell. I greatly enjoy country western music and how it tells a story..
C and W  is one of my newer challenges.
I have found some great raw material  from people I have met along the way and touched my life personally,
they have come from all spectrums of a diverse population of folks., who  have been generous enough to share a meaningful piece of themselves and let me in a crack to take a whack at  writing their stories. I get ideas of my own,  and then..,edit out the rough parts, Some of my work has come to me in a dream, like Soul Train came to me in my sleep. I woke up and wrote it down. I have a decent pop song repetroire., Street music has allowed me to bounce energies off of folks who give me honest feedback  because they aren't necessarily nailed in their seats to see  who if and when they decide to stop  in their tracks and listen, it tells me I am onto something tasty good,
  Of course , rock, music and blues are my musical roots, but.,now my folk and love balleds round things out nicely.
. All feedback is encouraging and I am open to helpful suggestions or critiques, to assist me in my goals of further excellence,Please don't say I should go around the world in hot air balloon, because I am not going to do that.
and please don't give me your most salient arguments why the world would be a happier, better place if I  killed myself.
So, ok, those are my boundaries,
any other advice is warmly welcome and greatly appreciated.
Thank You.......
Next Year In The Promised Lands...
