Anthony Plant

Anthony Plant has been playing in the rich music scene of Dallas/Ft Worth since his early teens. His playing has given him the opportunity to share the stage with many giants, such as Michael W Smith, Antonio Sanchez (Pat Metheny Group), Randy Brecker, Ronnie Laws, the Temptations, Bucky Pizzarelli, and Snarky Puppy to name a few. He studied guitar on scholarship at the University of North Texas with Fred Hamilton and Joe Lee, and in Dallas, TX with the masterful Jason Bucklin. Equally at home playing Brazilian bossa nova on classical nylon guitar, playing bebop lines in a straight-ahead acoustic jazz setting on his archtop, or playing soaring leads on electric guitar, he is in high demand in the Dallas/Ft Worth studio scene and has recorded on well over 100 albums. His solo album, The Colour out of Space, was released in 2012 with his original compositions and arrangements. He keeps a busy schedule playing locally in DFW, touring internationally with the Dallas String Quartet, recording in studio sessions, teaching a select group of students, and is the Musical Director at St John Catholic Church. When he doesn’t have a guitar in his hands, you might find him kicking a soccer ball around or walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain.
