About Antony and the Johnsons

The band is essentially the vehicle for singer Antony, whose full name is Antony Hegarty. Born in Chichester in 1971, Antony moved to Amsterdam in 1977 before settling in California the following year.

The band's self-titled debut album was released in 1998 but it was their second album, I am a Bird Now, which gained them popular recognition and won a Mercury Music Prize 2005, in spite of being pitted against favourites Kaiser Chiefs. They have been described by Rolling Stone Magazine as "a giant with a voice of singular majesty...an instrument of delicacy and rapture", and are posed to be one of the most noteworthy acts of 2005.
