ABOUT ANTO

I have been playing in bands since I was about 15. I started out playing guitar in the early days with other bands and it was clear early on that as the music progressed so did my playing. Deep down though drums were something I always wanted to do but there was never room in our house for them!

Then one day I woke up and thought, “Sod it!” And put myself on the path to getting my kit and throne! And I haven’t looked back since.

That was back in 2004 and I have been part of The Stines ever since day one.

The Stines have been great since the outset and things are looking good for the future. We have had a few ups and downs and the odd member change, but things are going well for us.

We have played countless gigs up and down the country, which are always well received and are nothing but energetic and passionate. We have recorded two EP’s with a third on the way that I personally am very proud of; we even achieved the award of best-unsigned act by radio city and have been approached my TV media companies that wish to use our material. All of which just ad’s to our credibility of a hard working, no-nonsense rock and roll band with some great songs.

Apart from playing I work full time, not exactly rock and roll but hopefully this will change as we go from strength to strength. My weekends mainly consist of sweating bucket loads on stage or having a few beers! And lets not forget getting myself down to at least one music festival each year, which for me is an absolute must!
