Anthony Singing Bear is a stylistic singer-songwriter weaving wise words and personal stories into jazzy swing, world beat, reggae, hip hop and soul. His popularity is in large part due to his conscious well-thought lyrics, inventive songwriting, and soulful emotive voice. Bear’s prolific garden of songs seem developed and timeless like something out of the archives, and yet his ever evolving repertoire is very much here and now. It is a unique brand of music, in the style of John Mayer, Jason Mraz, and Brett Dennen, but really defying all genre classifications.

Singing Bear gets your head bobbin from the minute “Believe“ begins. Awesome jazzy rhythm carries this song along with some funky rap vocals. Singing Bear is fresh, clean and fun.
His unabashedly awakened lyrics may prove too far out for some, but given a chance, Singing Bear’s superb musicianship and sensual vocals just may win over new fans and lead to new awakenings. For those already in a similar mindset, his new album Gold is a perfect mix of dance tracks and folk pop.
We couldn’t resist Singing Bear’s confident but sultry, groovy but ethereal eclectic song catalog.
He brings a special spirit to his music that we need more of, both in the music scene as well as in the children’s television scene. All of the music on his electronic press kit was enjoyable and a pleasant addition to my eclectic mix of music. Then I checked his YouTube channel. He’s got fifteen videos up, more than many performers I review. What is more fun is that besides the standard poorly framed videos of performances at one venue or another, or even well shot videos from recording studios, he has people’s music videos. Supported has wonderful images of rock formations, sunsets, campfires, and road trips.
Singing Bear writes lyrics that really have something to say and he delivers those words with catchy melodies and a passionate vocal style.
