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 upcoming original album.
Carl’s first singles, Ok lang and Walk Away have garnered more than 100,000 listens online, and the release of his first EP, 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”.
The War Cry EP 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 War Cry.
