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 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.
Antony Carle is a classically-trained singer whose powerful vocal chords, slick songwriting and sensational stage presence leave nobody indifferent. His work is recognized for pushing the boundaries of his art field by being fiercely passionate, honest, and aware.
As a child, Antony was captivated by album covers (particularly the ones with strong female artists on them) and he would spend hours in his parents' basement going through his father’s CD collection to discover new voices and sounds.
He began singing at age 3, then continued later in school, and eventually in church where he would charm older women with his angelic tone. He learned how to play the piano by ear at an early age and started writing in his late teens.
He went on to study music, but became a music school dropout after several differences with his teachers. He wanted to write more, not just use his voice in the name of TOP40 hits at corporate events, but most importantly, go where the queers were.
He moved to Montreal when he was 18, worked in restaurants, worked in retail where he met David Pimentel aka Pomo with whom he started making music. Together, they were Nouvel Âge. They performed a few shows, dropped a few tracks but it was when he started performing as a soloist that he could unleash his true-self and express himself the way he’s always desired.
He rubbed shoulders with many other local acts which helped him improve his skills as a writer, a composer and a producer, and other fellow visionaries such as Ouri who became a close friend and produced 3 tracks on his debut EP set to be released in 2019 via Bonsound.
Antony’s poetry and music are inspired by the nightclub scene, his rebel friends, faded love affairs and current social injustices. It reflects the struggles of an artist but also the boldness and pride that being a young and queer individual in the city requires. He shows depth in his ideas and puts on a show that nobody can walk away from.
