Anthony Sawyers Bio:
Stories are what make us human – the ability to create a narrative and tell it to those around us.
Anthony Sawyers uses hip-hop to tell stories. Inspired by artists like Lupe Fiasco, Nas, and Ludacris, Anthony Sawyers paints vivid lyrical pictures with words, writing songs about his faith in God, the challenges of life and the everyday grind.
Born and raised in Brampton, Ontario, Canada, Anthony Sawyers was first introduced to hip-hop at the age of eight and quickly became fond of the art form; so fond, that he would memorize as many lyrics as he could and rap them to his friends at school.
Since then Anthony has released one solo EP entitled Room Full of Heroes and was featured on MiddleChild Records’ debut EP Behind Closed Doors. He has never ceased telling stories in his songs that captivate and challenge his listeners.
A song like Clean Clothes tells the story of a young man struggling to reconcile true faith with fake religion, and Room Full of Heroes tells the personal story of Anthony realizing that you don’t have to fight alone when going through trials. Anthony’s style can be described as boom-bap for the new school.
Honing his craft by releasing monthly 16’s on his Instagram page for his fans, Anthony has also shared the stage with some local and global names such as: The Dream Junkies, Flame, Shope, Dru-Bex, Jason Mighty, Lord Badu, Humble The Poet and John Rivers.
