Keeping her mouth shut is something that ANTI-HERO’s frontwoman Rose Cora Perry has never been able to master. Growing up as a troubled and confused youth, music was the one outlet through which she could gain total acceptance. Never succumbing to negative temptation, Perry sought refuge through her artistic endeavours in hopes that the experiences she went through would one day serve as inspiration for her listeners.Read More
Never anticipating that she would one day be the leader behind a rock and roll phenomenon, Perry, unlike other rockers, maintains humility and takes the time to show her fans how much they are appreciated.
Acting as not only a band comprised of four extremely talented musicians, but rather the voice of a generation, ANTI-HERO has captured issues of societal prominence through the lyrics of their hard-hitting catchy rock-infused anthems.
Dubbed as the '21st Century’s Answer to Nirvana' (CoverZone Magazine, USA), ANTI-HERO’s raw unapologetic attitude harkens back to a time when music, like any other art form, was inspirational.
With their passionate presence, and commitment to delivering music with meaning, ANTI-HERO continues to raise the standards for musicians everywhere.
Comprised of Nic VanH, Perry’s bombshell blonde sidekick on Bass & Backing Balls, Jesse Tomes, the group’s Lead Guitarist, Arranger & Comic relief, and finally, Todd Stewart, more commonly known as T-Bag (yes, there is a good story behind this one folks) keeping it loud, consistent, and in perfect tempo on drums, ANTI-HERO is not your average rock quartet.
As Perry explains, "We try to promote ‘following one’s dreams’ as one of our strongest messages. We write what we know – how we feel, and who we are as people. We don’t write your cliché love and hate songs, but rather, with our music, we try to pay homage to the artists of the past who have made the industry what it is today. We are not here to fit into any molds, or preconceived notions of what it means to be in a female-fronted band. This is real rock with real attitude, and we are real people just trying to tell our story, hoping we can reach others with what we say."
ANTI-HERO’s definitely primed to take on the music biz, and with their impressive D.I.Y. ethics which have earned them accolades of success, seeing them crowned as rock and roll royalty will surely be no surprise to anyone.
In a time when the music industry is over-run by copycat artists selling their souls just to become the next flavour of the week, ANTI-HERO, like Nirvana, remains true to their vision: playing the music that they want.
