After signing on with Kathy Anaya of Lippman Entertainment in Los Angeles in 1994, he began attracting more high profile clients.

His first solo album called Demos of Saturn, originally released in the mid-1990s under the name Ajax Ray-O-Vaque, quickly sold out its initial production run and was only intermittently available on eBay until its release on iTunes in 2009.[3]

Anthony received his 12th RIAA Gold and Platinum certification for his programming and production work in the soundtrack of the successful Twilight films.[4]

Current career[edit]

Anthony spent years working with engineer Karyadi Sutedja at studio Bopnique Musique in an old textile mill just west of Boston. The 4,000-square-foot (370 m2) studio is chock full of vintage gear from the fifties, sixties, and seventies, as well as high end modern recording gear. All of the vintage gear (and Karyadi) have been moved to Paramount Studios in Los Angeles where Anthony continues to revolutionize recording in a nicer climate.
