Memphis’ own Vibe King, telling stories in music
You can call it Soul, you can call it R&B, or Hip Hop, Anthony Q doesn’t care as long as he’s telling a story and showing why he calls himself the “Vibe King,” through his music
“I’m not just calling myself the Vibe King because it looks good on paper,” the Memphis born and bred artist said. “I literally have so many different vibes that I’m going to give you, so when people start to question, what lane is he in? I’m in my lane.”
Anthony Q spans a number of genres with hits such as OG Advice, Feel So Good, Better and newly released singles Home, Move On and Monster.
He grew up a military brat, living for three years in Germany as a young child while his mother was stationed overseas and served in Operation Desert Storm.
He says he got his musical talent from his father, who currently serves as his manager.
“I’ve been singing since I was probably 8 years old,” Anthony said. “I grew up singing in a group from my teenage years on up until my early 20s. I’ve been singing in studios, especially in talent searches since I was 15. Now I’m just trying to find my own niche as a solo artist and song-writer as well.”
His music spans different genres and it spans different topics as well.
His single OG Advice tells the story of the advice he’s been given growing up and growing as an artist.
“OG is coming from where I come from,” Anthony Q said. “The majority of my life, I come from the hood and in the hood there’s always an older OG who’s been to jail or already lived through what you’ve lived through. A lot of time he gives you advice and in the hood it’s not real nurturing but it’s real. Hey man keep your head up. Don’t worry about what nobody else is doing, you got to do you, you’ve got to find what works for you.”
Anthony said his latest release, Monster, has been mistaken as a “Black Lives Matter” song, but he said it’s based on his experience as a black man with others of his own race and other races.
“It may seem like you’re going to get something different from me but it’s all because I’ve lived it,” he said. “I’ve been through it, I’ve had the conversations, I’ve had down times I’ve had ups, I’ve been in love, I’ve had my heart broken, I’ve broken hearts. You’re going to get different vibes. For me, I’ve had the opportunity to live a lot of things, so I’m going to share my life with you.”
