Anthony Quails masters the classic genre of old-time country story-telling. Weaving personal and patriotic history, Anthony’s new album Before the Bright Lights presents a set of Americana parables meant to marry our very real existence with transcending spiritual truths. These are real, tangible, simple stories that are meant to resonate and inspire in the deepest places.

Before the Bright Lights draws influences from radio theater and Americana storytelling, resulting in a work that Anthony says “feels very old – much older than I am.” The lyrics harness the power of allegory to discuss themes of forgiveness, perseverance, and love that overcomes adversity
