We are very proud to announce the release today of the fantastic new album “Cautionary Tales” by award winning New York State rapper Anthony Kannon and producer Frost Gamble, originally of Binghamton NY and now resident in Winnipeg, Canada.
We first heard the album around a year ago, and after much prepatory work and a summer of several single releases, it’s our great pleasure to finally provide the opportunity for you to hear it in full for the first time.
Authentically powerful, the young Ithacan lyricist draws on what has been quite a backstory filled with real life battles and challenging circumstances to convey a wide range of subject matter represented throughout the aptly titled release.
Having survived the trauma of being shot by armed intruders to the family home, it is a remarkable journey encapsulated in a series of biographical depictions, all with an underlying theme of survival, escape, progression and transformation.
This is Storyville of a life less ordinary deserving to be heard, handled with impressive maturity through a narrative packed full of dope rhymes and skillful wordplay. All set to the highest caliber soundtrack provided by Frost, himself a Juno Awards nominee for his production on Fresh IE’s “Ill Street Blues” in 2020.
There is also a full video playlist for every track playing on our Youtube channel
There will be two opportunties to see the album showcased live at the special launch events.
First up is next week on Thursday October 26th at The Osborne Taphouse in Winnipeg, then next month on Saturday November 18th at Deep Dive in Ithaca when Anthony will be performing with a live band and will also be joined by special guest, Brooklyn’s Justo the MC who features on the album alongside Frost’s long time sparring partner Tone Chop.
Tickets for both are available to buy in advance on Eventbrite, and of course entry on the nights at the door.
