Tony Anthony, the Jamaican reggae singer with the booming voice and who is now among the top reggae artistes in Canada, is living the local dream as his song Torn is doing well on local charts.

Torn, his latest single from his recently released album Million Chance, can be heard almost daily on the radio, so much so that it has snared the number 14 slot on Richie B's Top 25 Reggae Single charts on Hot 102FM and it debuted at number 15 on Stampede's Streets Charts.

Anthony was born and raised in St Catherine where he began singing on his church choir when he was eight years old. He migrated to Canada about 20 years ago after developing a reputation here as a quality musician. It is no surprise then how well Torn has been doing locally. In fact, this is the second time in the past two years that Anthony has produced a single that has done well locally. In 2008, his song Yuh Nuh Simple went as far as number five on some local charts.

Torn also song topped the Canadian Reggae charts earlier this year and remained the number-one song for eight weeks on the 'Rebel Vibes' top 10 charts in the Netherlands.

Since its release a few months ago, Anthony's debut album, Million Chance, has garnered a lot of interest in Europe and the rest of the world. On July 20, the album debuted at number five in the Netherlands reputed Reggae Vibes magazine Top 50 recommended albums.

Anthony, at the recent 2010 CRAA Awards, won the award for Best Reggae Vocalist in Canada.
