Born Antony Hegarty, the singer moved from the UK to San Francisco before settling in Manhattan. Inspired by Boy George and the Culture Club's debut album in 1982, she felt accepted and embraced by New York's avant-garde community of artists and performers. Honing her craft in the after-hours bars, she sang, wrote and directed late night theatre productions. The singer went on to form Antony and the Johnsons in 1998, releasing a number of well received albums including the Mercury Prize winning LP I Am a Bird Now.
