Anyone is a band from Southern California that formed in 1995. Their 2001 self-titled album was released on Roadrunner Records. The band are credited with creating the genre known as “maximum acid”, combining a heavy metal sound with psychedelic rock influences. Anyone is the brainchild of Riz Story, the band's lead singer, guitarist, songwriter and producer, and also the only member of the band that has remained since its inception. Former members include Taylor Hawkins (Foo Fighters, Alanis Morissette), Jon Davidson (YES, Sky Cries Mary) and David Silveria (Korn). ANYONE received much critical acclaim for its label debut throughout the international press, especially in Europe. The band toured extensively on the album, notably at the Reading Festival, Leeds Festival and Lowland Festival as well as 3 American tours. The album received many honors including being named #9 on the metal hammer year end chart for Metal Hammer's Albums Of 2001 list. Other awards include “best band” Los Angeles Music Awards.

They have been compared to Jane's Addiction, Radiohead and Tool. “Maximum Acid” is the term the press used to describe their unique sound, as a fusion of hard progressive rock and psychedelia. ANYONE covers a wide range of dynamics ranging from moody, ethereal space ballads (She and Echoes) to progressive uptempo heavy rock (Running Dry). Lyrical content is often poetic or philosophical (Wait until Morning) and sometimes whimsical (Dear Sylvia). It is rumored that the band were forced by RoadRunner Records (known for its Heavy Metal bands) to leave the band's most experimental music off of the debut record and focus on their heavier material. The overall sound of the band expanded drastically in 2014 with the release of “Echo's and Traces”. There are several acoustic titles (Over Before it Begins part 1 & 2) as well as the larger scale composition “Traces”. There is a large library of unreleased ANYONE music, much of it is said to capture the band's tendency to experiment with mood and structure. ANYONE were distinguished by their frequent improvisations during live performances. One of these improvisations was captured on the “Live Acid” record, although the track was hidden as track #99 and was unlisted anywhere in the credits.
