Krizan’s rock roots run deep. He was lead guitarist of the Spin Doctors, opening 15 dates for the Rolling Stones with audiences of 70,000, and for the Allman Brothers. He played guitar with Jimi Hendrix’s legendary bassist, Noel Redding. Anthony is known for rocking the big stages and getting an audience on their feet. He’s an original member of Amphibian, with Phish lyricist Tom Marshall.
In the Summer of 2022, Krizan released the single Strawberry Wine. The song is currently experiencing national radio play and critical acclaim. The single can be purchased here.
Anthony has also penned rock/soul staples such as Stand By My Woman with Lenny Kravitz, 5 songs on the Spin Doctors Greatest Hits, the theme of the Spin City TV series and The Howard Stern “Miss America” theme. Recently, Krizan co-wrote the title track to British rock singer John Waite’s new 2022 EP, Anything, and produced 3 tracks on the release. He also co-wrote the title track to John Waite’s Mercury release When You Were Mine.
Krizan is the 2013 recipient of the ASCAP FOUNDATION JAY GORNEY AWARD for the song he co-wrote with CHERYL DAVEIGA, “Home Don’t Feel Like Home”.
But Anthony’s true passion lies in his solo work. The Anthony Krizan Band’s performances and songs are electrifying, a swampy, rock/blues/soul, genre crossing solo-coaster ride. The title track to his last CD, Dust & Bone, was well-received and recorded by Gretchen Wilson, blues guitar legend Pat Travers and Tim Hicks (Universal Records).
He is the owner of SONIC BOOM STUDIOS.
