"As I was going through my own music, I noticed some songs that I've kept on repeat for up to ten years or more. So I thought about what makes them so special to me...and the answer is that throughout my life, these songs have been a source of inspiration and enlightenment . These songs not only taught me about but also got me through things like love, life and just growing up.
I look back on my life and see it defined by albums. A series of eras... Periods of time where I constantly listened to songs that moved me deeply.
With <WAKE UP> my goal is to give listeners a complete album that they can be inspired by for years to come.
Anthony Neely "
Anthony Neely's <Wake Up> album was definitely one of the highlights of the year for me in 2012. It really showed me not only what he could do as an artist, but it really did wake up something inside of me. And Neely has certainly fulfilled his aim as I find that each and every song on this album, crafted carefully with love has made it's imprint in my heart and my mind, and are songs that I have and always will, go back to in times of trouble or doubt. Neely's message and aim is clear for all to see; each and every one of the songs on this album has acted as a reminder of how music inspires and influences others, and the extent to which it's message can help others.
