We come from different backgrounds,  and different stories, but music brought us together.

 

Anthony Felice was born in New York and moved to Naples Florida with his family as a young boy. At the age of 12 he received his first guitar as a Christmas present. It wasn’t until his Father, Anthony Felice Sr. introduced him to bands such as Blink182, Staind, and Metallica that his musical journey truly began. In High School he started a band called Distracted 24/7, where he was the primary song writer and lead singer. The band gained almost instant popularity because of their original song, “Escape”. After moving to Orlando for College, he auditioned and became the lead singer for Liquid Spiral. Anthony feels that being on stage is the best place to be.
