Drummer, composer, producer and bandleader Anthony Fung was born in Richmond Hill, Canada and has been playing the drums since the age of ten. Currently based in Los Angeles, CA, Anthony has established himself as one of the foremost up-and-coming drummers of his generation.

Anthony is an alumnus of the prestigious Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz Performance (2018), where he earned a master of music (M.M.) degree while studying and performing with Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter, Chris Potter, Billy Childs, and many others. Previously, Anthony also earned both his bachelor of music (B.M.) and master of music (M.M.) degrees from the Berklee College of Music and the Berklee Global Jazz Institute under the tutelage of Danilo Pérez.

Having performed at festivals and other venues worldwide, Anthony has appeared at International Jazz Day (St. Petersburg, Russia and Havana, Cuba), Panama Jazz Festival, Panama Percussion Festival, Sitka Jazz Festival, Monterey Jazz Festival, Toronto Jazz Festival, and the Montreal Jazz Festival. He has performed alongside Danilo Pérez, Wayne Shorter, Herbie Hancock, John Patitucci, Joe Lovano, Miguel Zenón, Esperanza Spalding, George Garzone, Luciana Souza, David Binney, Dave Douglas, Jerry Bergonzi, Danny Rivera, Ruben Blades, and Ingrid Jensen, among others.

As a bandleader, Anthony released his debut album “Chronicles” (2014) and most recently released his sophomore album “Flashpoint” (2018) on October 1st, which received a raving 4-star review in Downbeat Magazine.
