Antony & The Johnsons

U.K.-born, California-raised Antony Hegarty felt like the consummate outsider until coming face to face with the image of Boy George on the cover of the Culture Club's 1982 debut album, Kissing to Be Clever. Eight years later, Hegarty relocated to New York City and found a world more accepting of avant-garde sensibilities and a sexually ambiguous nature. An early incarnation was the cabaret ensemble Blacklips, modeled after Blue Velvet-era Isabella Rossellini and the drag queen who graced the cover of Soft Cell's 1982 single "Torch."

Hegarty formed Antony and the Johnsons in 1998, and the band released its self-titled debut on David Tibet's Durtro label in 2000, followed by an appearance on the Lou Reed albums The Raven and Animal Serenade, plus a tour with Reed throughout 2003. (Hegarty also appeared in the 2000 Steve Buscemi film Animal Factory as an androgynous convict.) Antony and the Johnsons released a series of EPs in 2004, followed by the band's second full-length, the Mercury Prize-winning I Am a Bird Now, in February of 2005. Antony spent the next two years on the road, as well as appearing on Björk's Volta and in the Leonard Cohen documentary I'm Your Man before returning to the studio for the 2008 EP, Another World, which preceded 2009's full-length The Crying Light.

Antony and the Johnsons' fourth studio album, Swanlights, arrived the following year. In 2011, the album's publisher, Abrams, issued a companion edition of Swanlights collected in book form, with Antony's paintings, drawings, photography, collages, song lyrics, and writings. In 2012, the band released Cut the World, a symphonic retrospective arranged and performed in collaboration with the Danish National Chamber Orchestra. It featured 11 tracks from their catalog and the title cut, a new song written for Robert Wilson's stage production The Life and Death of Marina Abramovic. In 2006, Hegarty collaborated with video artist Charles Atlas on a performance piece called Turning, which combined a live performance by Antony and the Johnsons with video projections created by Atlas and featuring women who had struggled with self-image and sexual identity in their lives. Atlas later made a documentary about the show, simply titled Turning, and in 2014 the film's soundtrack album was released in tandem with a DVD edition of the film. ~ James Christopher Monger

The band is named after New York city's transsexual activist and drag queen Martha P Johnson. Martha fought for sexual and gender expression freedom along others in the Stonewall era. Look her up!

This creative genius is a gift to our world- sharing his passion in his unique way straight from the heart.

Heard his "River of Sorrow" at the end of a "Bones" episode. Researched him and find the music totally captivating. Seems to be a lot of Leonard Cohen influence in there

I love this man's crooning. Just that the arrangements of the music he does is so bad. If it weren't for his voice..., He resembles Herculeus and love Affair.

Check out Antony's performance of Leonard Cohen's "If It Be Your Will" on YouTube. Makes me cry. Bought the Came So Far For Beauty CD. Introduced me to Rufus Wainwright and others. Had to get their CDs as well.

I heard "Fistfull of Love" on NPR in around 2005, and was moved by the utter simplicity of the music odorned with the visceral, raw delivery via Antony's voice. Truly unique and inspiring.

My first experience of Antony and the Johnson's was hearing them when my alarm clock radio awoke me and "Pushing on" was playing! Wow! I had to hear more........ . . . . . . .

Haunting and commanding-- w e l l - s a i d . And unique. It hits me somewhere no other voice does.

"Haunting" is exactly the word I'd use to describe it as well. Antony has such a commanding voice. It's hard to find this level of artistry in music nowadays.

I just love the haunting atmosphere that surrounds his music.

Such a beautiful, haunting voice. The only song I've heard from him is "The Cripple and the Starfish" and I'm thinking of digging up some more.

Wow. I'm not usually ever blown away by a singer's voice, but in this case, I completely am.

Saw his concert at The Southern Theater last night, and it was as if being in the presence of divine greatness!

Just got the new EP and it is as amazing as everything else. I find myself listening to the same tracks over and over again. Thank you Antony!

Pure genius. So emotionally connected he puts most vocalists to shame. And Antony's work is an audiophile's dream. Don't waste this music on your ipod--listen to it on a real stereo if you want to feel pierced by real talent.

I first heard Antony and the Johnsons while watching "Saving Grace" the other night, and fell in love with his voice (the song Fistful of Love hurts)...com p l e t e l y speechless. Aaron Neville, Nina Simone and now Antony.
Bless them all.

When I heard Antony's rendition of "If it be your will" by Leonard Cohen, i was speechless with tears streaming down my face. I had never heard anything so heart wrenching. Just love his voice and emotion.

I've been in love with Nina Simone and now Antony.
