But You, Everybody Is
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
Antony Carle recently unveiled But You, Everybody Is, the first single off his debut EP to be released in 2019 via Bonsound. The powerful and sensual ballad was produced by Ouri, with whom he has developed a friendship that goes beyond their musical affinity. With its DIY aesthetic and cold lighting, the video - which was directed and edited by Antony - perfectly translates the themes evoked in But You, Everybody Is. The song is out now on all music services.
But You, Everybody Is showcases Antony’s silky voice, and is wrapped in oneiric synths and unusual sounds. The single’s lyrics are as personal as they are universal, tackling the quest of identity and the journey towards self-realisation. The song stresses the importance of being in control of your own fate and being aware of your own power, explains the singer-songwriter.
Antony Carle is a Montreal-based, classically-trained singer who started making music when he was 18 years old with producer Pomo as the duo Nouvel Âge, before undertaking a solo career. Performing as a soloist allowed him to unleash the whole of his talents and to express himself the way he’d always desired. Antony Carle’s music reflects the realities faced by today’s queer artists, but also the boldness and pride entwined with his identity. His poetry and music are inspired by the nightclub scene, his rebel friends, faded love affairs and current social injustices.
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.
