Visit my website

Detroit-born singer, songwriter, and musician, Anthony Retka, has spent the last fifteen years writing and performing material that has helped etch his place in the Detroit music scene. He has toured the United States with notable stops in Nashville, St. Louis, Chicago and New York.

Anthony recently released “Fields & Fortresses”, his most direct and expressive solo work to date. The new album features the strong vocal styling and lyrical abilities that people have come to expect from Anthony’s recordings. His newly formed band, Big Parade, backs him up on the new release and the album also features a few special guest appearances by notable Detroit-area musicians.
