Biography[edit]

Anthony grew up in Indianapolis, Indiana, and self-released her first EP in 1998. Two more EPs followed, and Anthony, who had built a strong fan base in Indiana, was offered the opportunity to tour with acts such as Natalie Merchant, Chris Isaak,[1] Barenaked Ladies, James Taylor, Tom Petty, and Enrique Iglesias.[2] While preparing her debut LP, Vent, she became part-owner of the semi-pro basketball team Nashville Shock in 2004. In January 2005, after attempting to fire the team's coach in the middle of a game, she resigned as CEO and had to release the album independently.[1] Nevertheless, two singles, "Vent" and "C'mon C'mon", hit the Radio & Records charts and the album sold over 175,000 copies.[2] Continuing to build a fan base on the internet with sites such as MySpace,[2] Anthony signed with EMI and released her second album, Goodbye, in October 2007. The album has peaked at #9 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart.[3]
