Anthony Hines is a solo guitarist who packs a whole lot of sound into a one man show. His talent and style encompasses all genres from Smooth Jazz, R&B, and Blues to Modern Country, Classic Rock, and Alternative Hits. Anthony first picked up a guitar at the age of 5. Influenced by one of St. Louis’s most talented guitarist Tony Hines (Father) “I learned a lot by just listening and watching his fingers move. I analyzed constantly as a kid while he played. I was more eager to learn vibrato and soloing. He taught me little repetitious patterns which I practiced daily about 3 hrs every day. One day something clicked in my brain and my hands started playing what I heard in my mind. Everything seemed to work seamlessly. I have to believe it’s from the constant drive and mindset to mimic or distinguish a style that mirrors some of my most favorable guitarists.”
Anthony became extremely focused on creating his own style and technique. Listening and learning from his favorites (Joe Satriani, Eric Johnson, Gary Howe, etc.)
After years of practice and determination, Anthony began to write original material while playing in cover bands, immersing himself in all facets of creating music, live performance and recording. Today he covers material from several different artists including John Mayer, C-Lo Green, Kenny Chesney, Bruce Springsteen, Coldplay, Drake, Rihanna, Breaking Benjanin, Dave Barnes, KT-Tunstal, Ne-Yo, Maroon 5, Sia, and many more....
