Draped in the rich colours of African cloth, his trademark staff in hand, and his dreadlocks wrapped regally on his head, Anthony B embodies all that it is spiritual and proactive about Reggae music. This artiste has been steadfast in his mission to represent the poor and oppressed, using sharp lyrics to confront political injustices and bring the issues of the people to the forefront. In the process, he has raised the quality of performance standards and lyrical content for the industry, through the release of 13 albums, over 1000 singles and appearances on over 100 albums in the last 14 years. 

Anthony B's musical journey started in the church, back when he was still called Keith Anthony Blair in Clark's Town, Trelawney. In this part of rural Jamaica, Anthony B was immersed in the thunderous chants and rhythms of Revivalism and the Seventh Day Adventist church where he honed his soon-to-be signature vocals. In his formative years, the artiste also cleaved to the music of Otis Redding and the incomparable Peter Tosh. 

In 1992, Anthony B left his home-town and set out to make his fateful mark on Kingston's music scene. He rebuked the trend of girl and gun lyrics popular at that time and remained faithful to words of spiritual consciousness and social conviction. He started working with singer Little Devon, who introduced him to Richard "Bell" Bello, of Star Trail Records, producer for Garnet Silk and Everton Blender. Bell saw the talent of the youngster and shared his commitment to conscious music. The partnership produced a slew of records and releases, such as "Repentance time", "Fire pon Rome", "One Thing", "A De Man", "Rumour" and "Raid di Barn". Anthony B followed up with critically acclaimed albums such as " Real Revolutionary", "Universal Struggle", "7 Seals", "Black Star" and "Untouchable". He also struck out on his own to start his own label, Born Fire Records in 2002. He produced 3 albums independently; Street Knowledge, That's Life and Life Over Death. In addition he released two collaboration albums "Too Strong" with Sizzla and "Three Wise Men" with Sizzla and Luciano. 

Anthony B's lyrical genius and his captivating, energetic performance style have caused him to be heavily requested for performances in the Caribbean, North America, Europe and Africa. Anthony B personally rates his performance in 1999 at the Montrose Jazz Festival as a monumental event in his career. In 2003 and 2004, he was given a King's welcome in Gambia and Senegal. In 2004, he sold out shows in Switzerland, Austria, Sweden, Belgium, France, Italy and Germany; closing for such greats as Israel Vibration and Burning Spear. He also opened up new regions for reggae music through his performances in New Dehli, India, Czech Republic, Iceland, Argentina, Venezuela and on France's Reunion Island, in the Indian Ocean. His heavy touring schedule has not slowed Anthony B's stream of releases. Over the years, he has collaborated with Bone Crusher, Akon, Wyclef Jean, Snoop Dogg, R. Kelly, Martina, an on his latest album, Toots. 

Anthony B's rich vocals and audacious lyrics carry a depth and substance which is rare in the industry. Internationally, his fan-base has grown because he speaks about the universal concerns of suffering and salvation. "The greatest thing about reggae music is that it's about concepts and ideas," says the artiste, "you are speaking to people on issues they live and can relate to." 

Anthony B's latest hit singles include "Sleeping In the Rain", "Satisfaction", "Bad From Long Time", and "Teaser" and come from his highly-anticipated 13th album, "Life Over Death". In January 2009, Anthony is set to release yet another album with Greensleeves Records. The album, "Rise" produced by Frenchy Maximum Sound, continues Anthony's legacy as he proves himself to be one of Reggae's most prolific and engaging artistes, an electrifying performer whose music grips the public social conscience.

Buxna Agency trying to move forward, to work with talented people that no big comanies want to support. BA main mission still will be booking of Reggae artists and some other genres of music. BA concentrate to East European market, hardest market in Europe. Last few years we was doing market research and see great potential in Russia, Bielarussia, all Balkans....There is lot of open minded people who still dotn know that Reggae music is only Bob Marley and thats it. No artist want to go there. This people didnt saw good reggae show. When i was playing some modern, younger artist people there was, like... woow, great music, what is this? I told them, this is Reggae music. Answer was face that i didnt saw for long time, last time i saw face like this when Red Star Belgrade win Olimpic Marseille in finalle of Champions league, face that say: Noooo, dont joke with me, tell me really what is this. This is not reggae for sure. And on my play list was Dub Inc and after Anthony B. After this conference BA get mission, even that none ask for some. We come back from conference in St. Petersburg around April 25th and from May 1st we are working on huge educational project for 2018. Mission is to show to this people good Reggae festival. Idea is that around 4 artists different kind of reggae go on tour. One roots artist ( for example M. Rose ), one younger, energetic artist ( for example Anthony B ), we call this world reggae ( Dub Inc ) and maybe one dancehall artist.
Now is coming part what new will BA do in future. BA become partner with Geek Picnic festival. http://geek-picnic.me/about Group of entusiastic Russians decide to make this festival with same mission as BA have with reggae, only they say: lets promote new technoligy and to show to people that wotn have chance to see in their life, not even dream to buy it and have it. They do great job last 3 years. They travel all around world and they have big succes in lasst 3 years. Check more on their site. As we have same mission we join forces. So BA will from now also book Geek Picnic all around world. 
Then last, new thing that BA will do. Last few years we are interested in hologram. Now, finally product is finlised and BA will offer this product to open minded people and to people who have ambition, like new and original things. I would love that Reggae artist release next albums with this hologram app. Their fans will have option to have hologram of their favorite artist at home and non stop with him. For artists this product should be interesting coz it can be used to release new album. Who want to buy new album of some artist they will need to download some app, order cover/cardboard, ( all oniline ), pay it online and then they can download new album of theri favourite artist at their mobile phone, then put phone in this cover that they will get and when they press play..... miracle :), Favorite artist is in front of them and ..... Now, this is up to artist what he will record. he can record greetings, or even one song, part of live show.... imagination is limit.
 
So BA is still into reggae and after longer pause we will work on some other projects that we think, that are worthy our time and that we can finally make something new, original, put Reggae to main stream, where it should be and....We are open for any good suggestion, any good business plan that can work ( but that is into art, originality, future, open mind...)
 As we use to say: We dotn talk, we do.  I hope now finally we wil do like this for real.
Bless
