He will speak to the massive advantages that artists like him now have today using new resources like this social network built specifically for music professionals -- Music Gateway.
While Brian has had much success, with it came a whole world of pain and downright hard work at the beginning of his journey in the music business, simply by not knowing where to start and having to figure everything out for himself with no help. Brian can see the huge potential in using our platform and what we have to offer to every single independent artist, executive & and label conducting business in the music industry.
Brian adds, "Using Music Gateway and connecting to the right people globally is so essential to the success of anyone working in the music business – industry veterans and independent artist newcomers alike.”
Brian goes on to explain, “If I had Music Gateway in the beginning of my career, I definitely would have cut out half the work I ended up doing. [He laughs.] There’s no guess work involved here – no finding your way through the dark like I had. With MG you are directly connected to like minded individuals and professionals with one resource -- in one place -- where opportunity is literally just one click away.”

For now, here's a little bit more about Brian – and his incredible story...
Brian has placed top charting positions in industry publications like U.S. Billboard's coveted TOP 10 realm, to UK Music Week's TOP 2 slots. He has even taken the U.S. Billboard #1 breakout spot from MADONNA herself, with his smash hit single "ELECTRICITY" featuring AKON's YABOY signed to KONVICT RECORDS. Brian has also crossed over over to the Top 10 of Music Week’s POP Chart, Top 20 placements in both UK’s M8 Magazine, and DMC Update chart, and has seen Top 40 chart positions collective European Club Charts alike.
Brian wrote, produced, arranged and performed all of his own music on his own independent label SOGNI RECORDS / 7 Entertainment, LLC. in association with some of the best producers and named DJ/Remixes' in the business.
As the true definition of an "independent artist" and the poster boy of D.I.Y., he marketed each of those successful releases with forward thinking, out of the box methods integrating mainstream and digital media as well as enlisting traditional record promotion with companies like Power Promotions in the UK. Creating all his own graphics and websites, digital and social media campaigns, print collateral and CD pressing, and essentially being a "one stop shop" propelling his career and each song further and further up the charts competing with the biggest names in music today. Trust us when we say, this is no small feat!
Four of the five hit records Brian released were placed in 20th Century Fox Major Motion Pictures that became Summer Blockbusters. They have also been placed THEATRICALLY with releases in EVERY TERRITORY worldwide. Mass mainstream exposure with each film harbouring their original POP RADIO versions. Brian has also been the BONUS FEATURE for each of those FILMS' DVDs released in worldwide distribution for FOX HOME ENTERTAINMENT, they all have sold over 6 Million copies a piece globally.
Film Song Placement’s Brian’s been theatrically released in are as follows:
GARFIELD 2 - A Tail of Two Kitties "Come and Get It" Theatrical + DVD release
Fantastic Four 2 Rise of the Silver Surfer - "Whatsitgonnab?" DVD release only
Dragonball Evolution - "Worked Up" Top 10 U.S. Billboard Hit
Aliens In The Attic (starring Ashley Tisdale) - "Electricity" Feat. Akon's - Ya Boy
The Special Olympics global organization approached Brian in 2005 to write and produce an inspirational anthem to sing at their opening ceremonies that same year at the Southern California Long Beach Basketball Pyramid. Brian wrote and co-produced an anthem called, "CHAMPION", for the Special Olympics athletes that was then later remixed for the dance market by No. 1 Billboard charting remixer Solar City, who are largely known for producing and writing for the top selling circuit dance artist, Erin Hamilton, daughter to Carol Burnette and TV Producer, Joe Hamilton.
All of the TOP CHARTING releases were launched in promotion to the DANCE MARKET that range from a smooth Crossover flavoured Dance mixes to Electro to Progressive House with each one being a hit all by itself. Each of the remix projects are attached to "Super DJs" in the international "DANCE REALM". Each project was carefully crafted by promoters and Brian himself, that would be able to work in multiple territories aside of the U.S, delivering with huge results in every market. Brian has worked with superstar DJ's who are touchstones of the dance music industry such as: Chus & Ceballos, SunFreakz, Lenny B, Rui Da Silva, Love To Infinity, DJ DAN, Johnny Vicious, Raul Rincon, LoveRushUK!, Timothy Allan, Mark Picchiotti, Albert Castillo, and many more.
IN MY DREAMS -- Reboot 2013
Currently, Brian Anthony is working with a new remix producer, Bill Pardue, who goes by the remixer name of MISSION GROOVE for the re-launch of Brian's "IN MY DREAMS" Project. Bill's retro style anthem is a mixture of house and electro style grooves reminiscent of 90's dance production setting dance floors on fire back in the day and is sure to make them explode in a future release for the first time to market ever in America and a re-release to the UK after it's lofty #2 Charting peak position in Music Week Magazine on the Club Chart next to Kylie Minogue in 2011 and crossing over to the Top 10 on their Pop Chart.

Previously on the original IN MY DREAMS package, Brian enlisted the help of none other than his good friend Sophia May , whom you most will know for her Billboard Club Play Chart #1 smash "I Can't Help Myself" with Bellatrax. (Never mind the fact that the boy wonder surpassed Madonna, Three 6 Mafia and Kelis, taking the #1 Breakout position on the Billboard Club chart for the first week of the new decade!)
Pulling out all the stops, Brian takes you for quite a ride on his own "dreamliner" of sorts, welcoming you with the sexy soundfx voice of his very own in-cabin crew stewardess. And to set this electro pop anthem apart from the legion of dance crazed pop acts labels are going ga-ga over, Brian infuses "In My Dreams" mainstream radio edit with a more cinematic and organic quality. He blends a go-go beat, fast moving tambourines and signature electric guitar part reminiscent of the international "spy" feel of the 007 days, coupling it with his usual bottomy-bass, hip-hop 808s and fluttering synth lines for a futuristic edge.
On the remix forefront, we find ourselves with quite a crew having legendary Johnny Vicious and DJ Dan at the helm. Johnny Vicious kick starts our ascent with a massive progressive-house production whilst DJ Dan injects some dirty electro synths for the ride.
To accompany us on this supernatural voyage, we have quality reworks from Timothy Allan, who's recent success of The Shrink Reloaded supported by Guetta and Fatboy Slim turns in another full on progressive banger, whilst UK act Loverush UK! return to their trademark sound fresh from their remix of the Number One Club Chart, Oakenfold Featuring Matt Goss - Firefly smash and deliver a huge anthem.
Let's not forget, that "In My Dreams" is also the follow up to the massive club hits "Worked Up" (from 20th Century Fox's DRAGONBALL: EVOLUTION) and "WhatsitgonnaB? (I'm So Ready)" (also from FOX's FANTASTIC FOUR: Rise of the Silver Surfer), both with chartbusting rankings at U.S. Billboard and UK Music Week Magazine CLUB and POP Charts, alike. All this is taken from Brian's first full length album, "DREAMSCAPE" slated for release sometime in 2014.
“Becoming : Brian” – Reality Series
“When ‘be careful what you wish for never became so ‘REAL’!”
The "IN MY DREAMS" release would tie into Brian's reality project "BECOMING : BRIAN", that was once signed to FOXMOBILE/Jamster before that division was discontinued at the studio. The show takes a look at what it's TRULY like to be independent and how Brian used technology and embraced the digital age of music, back in the beginning of his career, when nobody else was, to reach fans around the world and market his music through Social Media.
Brian is re-launching his story with a start-up out of the SF Bay Area's Silicon Valley. The start-up is working with major label recording artists in the digital realm like Gaga as well as Beiber's manager, Scooter Braun, and is not only creating new content for broadcast in the new media realm, but is redefining how social media will be used to market artists like Brian, Gaga, Beiber, and many others through harnessing the power of fan mobilization and their integrated efforts through "calls to action" and fan participation. In the future you will be seeing excerpts and possibly even full episodes of Brian's show, "Becoming : Brian" at Music Gateway, while those episodes would then move to Network and Mobile broadcast later.
