About Carl De Villa
In no time at all, Filipino-Australian indie pop, dance and RnB singer Carl De Villa has been featured on Nine Network’s The Voice Australia, Seven Network’s All Together Now and performed at sell-out gigs across Australia. His talents as a performing artist are boundless and evident in his original music, with his album War Cry dropping on 15 November 2020.
Carl’s first singles, Ok lang and Walk Away have more than 100,000 listens online, and the release of his first album, War Cry is set to explode. A visual extravaganza with music in the vein of Sam Smith, Bruno Mars and drawing inspiration from modern indie pop, rock, soul and gospel, each song is a heartfelt, raw experience made sound.
Called “a visual splendour” by the one and only Boy George, fans shower praise on Carl saying that he is “oozing sex appeal” and that his “stage presence was mesmerising”.
War Cry is a journey from the raw emotion of In My Father’s Hands (moving early listeners to tears) to gospel-tinged soft rock in Flaws and the anthemic, titular War Cry.
Carl has collaborated with renowned Sydney music producer, Michael Tan and Melbourne-based Rhys Tolhurst to create music from original lyrics co-written with Carl’s writing partner Adrik Kemp. And if that’s not enough, famed dance artists and DJs, Division 4 and Ray Isaac have contributed remixes to the EP.
