Antony Carle est spectaculaire. La Presse
Antony Carle is a Montreal-based, classically-trained singer whose music reflects the realities faced by today’s queer artists, but also the boldness and pride entwined with his identity. Antony’s music is inspired both by personal and universal experiences. It is reflective of the times he lives in, brimming with social injustices, broaching themes such as individuality, heartbreak, and superficiality. His debut EP will be out in 2019 via Bonsound.antonycarle.bandcamp.com
Following last fall’s unveiling of the song But You, Everybody Is, Antony Carle returns with Save Face, the second single off The Moment, his debut EP due out May 17th via Bonsound. It’s an empowering song about survival, determination and unity. CRi’s slick production and the gripping vocal arrangements illustrate an urgent need to exist and matter while showcasing Antony Carle’s impressive vocal range. The title gets repeated multiple times at the end of the song, almost like a mantra, so the listeners know that, regardless of the challenges they face, better days are coming, explains the artist. According to The 405, Save Face makes a compelling case for Carle as one of 2019's breakout stars.
From classical church singer to songwriter and queer pop artist, Antony Carle is a talent who leaves nobody indifferent. On The Moment, he delivers seven tracks inspired by nightclubs, faded love affairs, social injustice, and personal (and universal) experiences. The EP reflects the artist’s path towards success, as well as the boldness and pride that comes with being a young, queer individual in the city. It screams authenticity, individuality, identity, recognition, and an inherent desire to “make it”. Brilliant producers Ouri, CRi and Victor Bongiovanni all assisted with this project. Antony Carle is an exciting new talent who puts on a show from whom nobody can walk away.
From classical church singer to songwriter and queer pop artist of his time, Antony Carle is a talent who leaves nobody indifferent.
As a child, Antony was very fond of his family’s album collection. He was fascinated by powerful voices and unusual sounds as well as album covers, particularly the ones featuring strong female artists. Inspired, he started singing at age 3, perfected himself in school and performed in church, where the elderly defined his talent as “the voice of an angel”.
He taught himself to play the piano and began writing his first songs during his teenage years. He then decided to stop musical training to focus on songwriting and develop his own sound. Antony’s music is inspired both by personal and universal experiences. It is reflective of the times he lives in, brimming with social injustices, broaching themes such as individuality, heartbreak, and superficiality.
In Montreal, he met David Pimentel, aka Pomo, with whom he started a band under the name of Nouvel Âge. This project allowed him to perform in the city and enhance his songwriting skills before debuting a solo career. From then, he has rubbed shoulders with many other local acts and other fellow visionaries such as Ouri, who produced 3 tracks on his debut EP, The Moment, set to be released in 2019 via Bonsound. He is a charismatic artist who puts on a show nobody can walk away from.
