*“CBS had a conference, I was at the same table as the V.P. of BSO…found out we want to entertain in each others’ arenas,” said Wordsmith about his partnership with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra that lasts until 2024.
Baltimorean Wordsmith, born Anthony Parker, rewrites classical pieces bringing that urban flavor or as he said bringing the pieces, “to current times.”
“I wrote tons of music for television and games…now I’m a part of the classical realm…rewriting older pieces,” he humbly stated.
Aside from his partnership with the BSO Wordsmith is an entrepreneur via Wordsmith Music and NU Revolution Entertainment and a philanthropist through his non-profit Rise with a Purpose. Currently, Wordsmith’s non-profit is raising funds for the people of Ukraine. It so happens that his label has a Ukrainian Punk-Rock band on its roster.
“The state-funded me (Rise with a Purpose) to go to 11 countries…teaching,” said the songwriter, actor, and performer. “I do God’s work. I love to do this…being a vehicle to help others.”

“I’m never set,” he told me when I asked. “I’m hungry for more all the time.”
This, I am sure, comes from his passion to provide for his family.
“I worked for the government for 13 years to support my family,” Wordsmith explained about his humble beginnings to being a partner with the Baltimore Symphony Orchestra and founder of an organization funded by his home state to travel around the world teaching what he holds close to his heart – music.
When I asked him about his background he said, “It’s a mixture of everything. I have a degree in performing arts and background in radio and television. I studied at Morgan and finished at Salisbury. Music-wise I’m bless to be able to do my passion…I made sure I had income…followed my passion.”
