What to Expect
A live show!!
A-N-T was born into the world in South Georgia on May 7th as Anthony Caldwell Jr. Soon after he was born he moved to the greater city of Atlanta. He hit the music scene at the young age of 13, rapping with other local artists until he formed a rap group called Self-Made. They then recorded their first album which was self-titled in late 2001 and hasn’t looked back since. The group later broke up and A-N-T went his separate way to pursue a career as a solo artist. He has performed at past local venues and talent shows, such as 20 Grand East, Central Park & Bistro, Poole Palace, local high school talent shows, parties, bar open mics, etc.
He has a style like no others but some like to compare him to B.o.B and Andre 3000 all in one, with a little bit of T.I. on the side. He soon discovered his great talent for beat making and R&B song writing; which opened his creativity even more. In October of 2004 A-N-T started his own production company entitled A.M.P. (Atlanta Music Productions) owned by A-N-T and TK (Timi King). Later he discovered his engineering skills; due to the fact that his producer left the state he practically had no choice. He then began to build his own in house studio to help sharpen his craft at his own convenience. Renting out studio time and selling beats was a way to help fund the process.
Soon A-N-T started engineering for a lot of people around Atlanta and Marietta. Shortly afterwards he ran across “Kuntry Klub Music” and started engineering for the affiliated artist. In January 2011 A-N-T made the brave step departing from his company A.M.P. and joined The Kuntry Klub as an official solo artist. He then put out an eleven track EP with The Kuntry Klub entitled “The Preface”. The EP really showed the diversity that the artist holds. With the help of his management he planned on taking the world by storm with his unique talent.
He later was offered the opportunity to perform at SXSW and open up for Khia (My neck my back) and debut his first single under the wing of Kuntry Klub Music “American made”. The single itself got great reviews as well as a great response from the SXSW audience. 2012 kicked off great for A-N-T. He won top 10 artists out of 75 in a talent search of all genres for Sony Music with the Joel A. Katz music & entertainment business program at Kennesaw State University. He continued doing performances that they would setup through the program ending with the final show performing for the R&B sensation Faith Evans.
He recently has been doing shows everywhere he can showing the constant grind that he has. Influenced by some of the most successful artists such as Outkast, Busta Rhymes, Ludacris, and other southern artist, he’s the next up and coming artist out the “A”. He hosts, engineers, graphic designs, produces, writes both hip-hop and R&B, and has a stage presence like you've never seen before. A-N-T has always had a great passion for music and entertainment, and since he’s started, THERE IS NO STOPPING HIS TALENT AND AMBITION NOW!!!
