Only a handful of young artists share the same longevity on this site as New York Teen pop artist Anthony Gargiula. Anthony was the first to be interviewed on this site for The Skykid Radio program and enjoyed his first feature back in July of 2010 entitled Anthony Gargiula 11 year old showstopper.
Now more than 5 years later Anthony has grown into an amazing performer and recording artist with a resume that includes performances with some of the biggest names in the entertainment industry. In fact if you have been following this site you already know that Anthony appeared on Ellen numerous times, his first appearance when he was just 7 years old.
Anthony has also been showcased on other major network programs like NBC’s Today Show and CBS Early Show. He has opened shows for The Jonas Brothers, Lady Antebellum, Jordan Pruitt, The Outlaws, The Temptations, Four Tops, Kellie Pickler just to name a few!
Anthony is also known for his truly amazing performances of the National Anthem for major sporting events and Professional Sports. In fact, five of these performances were held at Madison Square Garden for the New York Knicks. In addition he has opened games for The Boston Red Sox, Boston Bruins, Jacksonville Jaguars, Minnesota Twins, LA Dogers and others…
His first CD called “Finally Done” and the title song with the same name remains one of my favorites yet today. Knowing how that song was inspired helps in our understanding to why Anthony started the nonprofit organization called “Bowling Against Bullying”. Anthony has performed for numerous events for this organization with over $10,000 in proceeds raised going towards the anti-bullying projects of local school districts and anti-bullying charities. This alone says much about his character and desire for his music to make a difference in the world.
Naturally Anthony’s voice has matured and strengthened since that first CD project, but even back then Anthony had that special quality to his voice that could not be denied!
In January of this year Anthony signed on with Cheiron Records where he has been creating new music for what I’m sure will eventually become a full CD. Making countless trips to Florida where Cheiron is based, Anthony has been recording new music, attending dance rehearsals, having photo shoots, shooting videos, and more. This upcoming year is promised to be the most exciting and productive yet for Gargiula!

Released just two weeks ago, the third single Anthony has put out with Cheiron Records, “So I Don’t Drown” hit Number One in New Artist category on the iTunes chart it’s first week running. This makes a loud statement of just where Anthony’s recording career is heading. I also highly recommend that after purchasing his new hit single you will also want to add DNA and Barricade. his previous two releases to your AG collection.
I asked Anthony to describe his new song and give us a little behind the scenes remarks regarding the making of his latest single. “So I Don’t Drown”
“So I Don’t Drown” is one of my favorite songs that I have ever recorded. I recorded it with an amazing producer named Tim Coons. He has had so much success in this business with people like the Backstreet Boys and Britney Spears. It was an honor to have worked with him.
My brother, Louis was a big part of the song also, he wrote most of it with a little help from me here and there on some of the melodies and verses. Louis, Tim, and I had so much fun producing this song and making music in the studio.
The lyrics of the song are really neat! The song has the word “drown” in the title, and throughout the song there are a ton of references to waves, water, and tides. This is such a fun song to dance to and I hope everyone enjoys it! ” -Anthony
Nobody can predict the future; however there is no doubt that Anthony Gargiula will continue to be extremely successful as he makes his way to the top of the entertainment industry.
