Personalities | Antony & The Johnsons | Twenty-First Century | Rock

(Vocal group, 2000–present)

New Yorker Antony Hegarty (vocals) and his fluid supporting cast are an act that affect everyone who hears them. Lou Reed liked them so much he recruited Hegarty to his band, and provided vocals, along with Boy George, on the Mercury Award-winning I Am A Bird Now (2005). What captivates fans is undoubtedly Hegarty’s voice, a successor to Nina Simone but also one clearly indebted to the 1980s acts he loved as a youth, such as Alison Moyet and Marc Almond.
