The long wait is over, and Anthony Callea now has his self-titled debut album out in NZ.

At just 22 years of age Callea has made his mark in Australia and now its time for us to get our second taste of his talent since his Australian Idol journey.....
And now to the important stuff, how does this album rate?
The 12 track album begins with a crowd favourite, 'The Prayer'. This song made the hair on the back of my neck stand up, very stirring! and it wasn't the only track to have that affect on me - Per Sempre (For Always) is sung in a similar style. When I Get There was inspirational (I love inspiring lyrics) and Bridge Over Troubled Water was a brilliant tribute to Simon and Garfunkel. These songs also truly show Callea's vocal range, and as the album continues to play you get a sense of this guy's incredible talent for singing.

Rain has a popsy sound to it that suits Callea's boy-band look, and to be honest I found myself singing along without even realising it - tre' catchy! Hurts So Bad, automatically made me think of Ricky Martin.

Halfway through the album, things get a lot more mellow with love-filled ballads and further popsy notes. I get the sense that you could happily play this on a lazy Sunday afternoon.

Callea has a rare talent, a beautiful voice that reaches people across generations. To top it off he is a beautiful man (as a good friend likes to say). If you'd like to check out photos visit:

Anthony Callea may have been discovered by idol,but his debut self-titled album stands on it's ownagainst pop albums everywhere. The album has a mixture of of power ballads and breezy dance tracks.

It includes 'Rain', 'Hurts So Bad' and, of course 'The Prayer'-the song that placed him firmly in the hearts of tweens, teens,& grandmothers from all over Australia!

Anthony's voice, musical talent and good looks made him destined for only one thing- pop stardom.Even with the winner of of the third series of Australian Idol on their way, we have no doubt that Anthony Callea will stay just as popular as he is now!


HiT Review: Herald Sun

Anthony Callea played the Idol game with his double platinum debut album, singing other people's songs and singing them damn well.
In Idolworld, that earns him the right to co-write his second album with the best hitmakers his record company's money can buy.
The result, A New Chapter is an album of two halves - ballads and pop. Indeed, it was going to be a double album until someone surely pointed out he's not Christina Aguilera. Callea has the voice to carry off big - and we're talking industrial strength - ballads.For emotion, the dramatic title track wipes the floor with bland lead single Live For Love, a bizarre choice considering it's the only track Callea didn't have a hand in writing.The title track's production is immense and the orchestration stirring, Callea lifting up a notch or 12 as the strings soar towards the heavens. Anyone looking for a surrogate The Prayer should look no further.
Callea occupies an unusual place in the local pop world, selling to housewives and their daughters. That dual appeal explains the album's other side - mid-tempo guitar pop. Perfect Mistake is pop with more edge than he's displayed in the past. Producer Tom Nichols (Kylie, Stephanie McIntosh) throws everything at the song - strings, guitars, huge key changes - to create a lush mini-epic.

Stranded, too, sounds like a hit in waiting. The guitars are pumped up; it's hardly Metallica but instantly updates his sound.

Addicted to You and Almost start off interestingly before their choruses veer too close to John Farnham soft-rock territory, the slick production removing any rough edges. At 15 tracks it's also too long. There's too many similar tempo guitar/pop songs and ballads that start to lessen each other's impact.Callea has learnt to hold back on the vocal acrobatics, so a simple orchestrated ballad like Here I Go Again doesn't get swamped, while Heartbeat is still your obligatory power ballad, but with a refreshing subtlety.At the end of the day, A New Chapter is a solid second album. Once he starts taking a few more risks, Callea will really come into his own.

In a word: personal

Daily Telegraph

Callea appears to have beaten the second album curse with the follow-up to his post Idol debut. He knows exactly what kind of song will allow him to show off those powerful pipes and the opening track Live For Love, nails it.
But he has refused to rest on his big ballads stretching his repertoire into Rob Thomas style soft Rockers (Addicted To You & If Only).
Equally impressive are Chong Lims orchestral arrangements and the Overall production which demonstrates WORLD-CLASS albums can indeed be made in Oz.

Pop Republic

Whilst the rest of the world are thinking that Anthony's second album is track after track of power ballads, his die hard fans, and those of us lucky enough to cotton on quick enough are finding out that this is a stellar offering that will not only satisfy the 'balladeers' but also we picky pop rock punters, who only like quality in our music. Track after track on this album, Callea proves that he can certainly write a tune, some strong enough to take on the likes of Ben Moody (ex-Evanescence) and the big hit makers of Sweden like Max Martin.

This is definitely not puerile sugar-coated-pop, its soulful, well structured proper pop music that will appeal to a large market that like great lyrics, smooth vocals and style. A new chapter seems to be the best thing for Anthony… my advice, is go out and give it a listen… Stand out tracks include 'Addicted To You', 'Perfect Mistake' and 'Stranded'.

The Story: The newbie from the ex-Idol is still on the orchestral path, but if that's what you love about him you'll have no dramas taking to it. The amazing voice that is Anthony Callea is still visible, as are the violins in the background of the sweet love tunes and the formula typical of Anthony songs (starting out soft, building up to a mega climax). But we're surprised to hear a few tracks that sound remarkably like fellow romantic Nick Lachey (keep your ears on alert during 'Perfect Mistake'). A cool mix of orchestral ballads and guitar-fuelled ones too


 Sun Herald - 5/5/13

You shouldn't judge a book by it's cover but Anthony Callea's latest pop album is as pretty as his boyish face....his original tracks are  well crafted and emotional.  A moving and powerfully vocal album.


TV Week July 2 2005

Anthony has cornered the market on smooth, soulful songs and croony tunes. This is sure to set hearts aflutter and send fans into a frenzy.

The verdict : Swoony Crooner


Desiree Savage -Perth Sunday Times

If you loved the Prayer, you will totally love this. He's the little guy with the big voice that is wooing women (and men) everywhere. He may have a new harder-edged hairdo, but it certainly hasn't affected his voice, or his style. I love the fact that we know this guy can sing - and this song really accentuates his velvet-like tones. I don't know if it's the orchestral backing, the voice or the spunky new look, but Anthony is proving more attractive with each release. So hot right now!

Kathy McCabe - Daily Telegraph
"OK,OK, we know the power ballad is back but it would have been great to hear Callea step away from the trademark sound that launched his career. But he does it all so well, backed by a sublime orchestra. Celine Dion, eat your heart out."


After catching up with Anth recently for good old natter about the new album, I can understand why this was chosen as the lead single from his album a safe yet really enjoyable track that will satisy his existing fan base. Live For Love is a tried and tested beauty for any fan of The Prayer or killer vocal ballads but it takes a side step from the obvious love song, you would normally associate with this style of music and really connects with us listeners who don't want to get too soppy! There is no disputing Anth's vocal abilities, but in my opinion, for a real surprise, check out his new album and the tracks 'Addicted To You' and "If Only' if you want to see the awesomeness of this pint sized powerhouse!


From the little dude with the big voice. I'm totally loving this song. Poppy beats with deep guitar and a catchy chorus keeps this groovy little tune in your head for ages

Sydney Morning Herald

Callea heads into Nollsy's Modern Rock Territory with this Big Song which might even win him some Rob Thomas fans - reviewer Kathy McCabe


Star Observer
Anthony Callea returns to music this month with an infectious new club track.
On first listen, Oh Oh Oh Oh sounds like a pretty standard pop song circa 2011 — autotune and all.
Listen closely, though, and you’ll notice a few individual quirks to the track. Firstly, the sweeping disco strings of the chorus, courtesy of producer (and Black Eyed Peas tour DJ) Poet.
Secondly, there are the lyrics — “You activate my soul, boy” among them — that acknowledge that the Callea of today is openly, happily gay, as opposed to the closeted pop star of his previous albums

Southern Star
Callea's new single is a dancefloor stormer co written and lproduced by DJ  Poet who is best known for his work with the Blackeyed Peas.

Anthony Callea has broken cover on his brand new tune 'Oh Oh Oh Oh'.
The single is the former Aussie Idol's first in four and a half years and the first since leaving long-time label Sony and going it alone as a solo artist.
Co-written and produced by DJ Poet (who's also worked with the Black Eyed Peas), the track is an up-tempo dance number that brings together dancefloor grooves with '70s-esque disco vibes to create something that will no doubt find a home on radio stations across the country.


Last To Go
Anthony Callea is back with a slamming new EP, and its a killer!

Last To Go
Juggling some Guetta-fied vocoder and dancefloor beats with a gorgeous, soaring, hands-in-the-air chorus it’s easily the best song the pocket rocket’s ever put his name to.


PopRepublic - Dec 2005

'The pint sized proficionado is back, and this time on DVD...the disc was recorded in Melbourne during Ant's recent round of Aussie touring, and if you missed out on seeing him live, then you HAVE to buy this DVD.

His show was really well executed and aside from the power ballads, Anthony really kicks it with the audience and is far less "plastic" than people would have you believe.

An awesome offering from a very talented bloke...check it out before your sister steals it from ya!

Musical Notes with Peter Pinne

Anthony Callea

Anthony Callea is a dynamic, hot performer. Sexy is the wrong word as he doesn't flirt with the audience, but he has a Sophia-Loren-like timeless sensuality that gives him a connection to a diverse audience from teenage girls to seniors, straight guys with their girlfriends to gay men.

Though he's only been in the public eye for a year, the maturity he brings to his performance stems from having worked on developing his singing skills since he was three. Having to perform consistently week after week, on Australian Idol has only refined his stage presence.

What marks his music is the diversity of the materials and its consistency. While his songs
cover a variety of genres, they maintain the homogeneity necessary to pop success. The standout songs were a cover of Enrique Iglesias's Hero, naturally The Prayer, and the encore performance of Rain.

It's obvious that he's someone doing what they love and this brings a passion to the performance that grips you from the opening note to the final note of each song. If you've liked his recordings, then the chance to see him live is worth every penny.

His new single 'Hurts So Bad' is out July 3.

Due to overwhelming demand, Anthony Callea is set to embark on an extensive tour of Australia throughout July and August proudly presented by Video Hits and Network 10.
Anthony Callea's recent shows in Sydney and Melbourne sold out in a matter of days with many disappointed fans missing out on tickets. This time however Anthony has extended his tour, reaching from far north Queensland down south to Hobart and taking in Adelaide and many regional centres along the way.

Anthony's first two singles, 'The Prayer' and 'Rain/Bridge Over Troubled Water' and his debut album 'Anthony Callea' have all hit the #1 spot on the ARIA charts. Anthony's third single 'Hurts So Bad' hits radio this week, and if the response from audiences during his recent tour are anything to go by, Anthony has another huge hit single on his hands.

Supporting Anthony on tour is special guest Tina Cousins direct from the UK, currently enjoying national airplay with her new release 'Wonderful Life'.

Anthony Callea
Concert Review
By Graham Rushton
From Stage Whispers Magazine
Seagulls Club Stardust Room, Tweed Heads, NSW

The lights dimmed, the audience clapped, there were screams from teenagers, the music started, smoke gradually flowed across the stage, and then came the voice of Anthony Callea. The applause and screaming rose until at the right moment Anthony appeared through the smoke to the roar of a near capacity, diverse, audience ranging from 10 to 60 years.

Together with a five piece band, Drums, keyboard and guitars, Anthony literally belted out his first number dressed in black pants and a red/black and gold (which flashed in the lights)
T-shirt and continued into the next song. The band I understand was Tina Areana's band. Then he admitted he was getting over a cold so would sing next a song he usually saved for later in the program.

The song was his #1 best selling hit, 'The Prayer'. To see this song performed live for this reviewer was an amazing experience. I had watched Anthony sing it on Australian Idol and
listened to it on his CD but to actually see this young entertainer perform it live would have to be one of the most rewarding emotional experiences of my life. The passion that he gave to 'The Prayer' will long stay in my memory.

The stage setting for Anthony's performance consisted of several rostrum raise at different levels for the band, while overhead were strung seven extra large ballons. Throughout the concert these ballons were lit by ever changing colours of red, green, purple, yellow and white. The lighting and the sound levels were just perfect for the location at Seagulls Stardust Room.

As the evening continued Anthony went through a repertoire of around 15 songs including; 'Lost In Summer' and the recently released single, 'Hurts So Bad'.
Since Austalian Idol, Anthony has developed his singing skills and stage presence and brings to his performance an amazing maturity for his 22 years of age. He moved across the stage touching hands with the audience who at the time he had asked to step forward to the stage. Every young girls dream came true and I must say the dream of the gay guys who were also in the rush to the stage. Every bump and grind, slinky move across the stage proved what an entertainer this young man has become. He asked the audience "Let me hear you scream" and they did.

Anthony thanked the Austalian public for the support they had given him over the past seven or eight months. He has come a long way since performing in his younger years in Melbourne. As the concert moved on he sang the classic, 'Route 66' and ended the evening with the Paul Simon classic, 'Bridge Over Troubled Water'. Once again this brought the audience to fever pitch.

Guest Artist on the show the lovely Tina Cousins who came all the way from the UK to be Anthony's special guest. Tina got the audience going with songs like 'Master Mind' and 'Pretty Young Thing'. With words like "there's something in the breeze, you're a pretty young thing", she dedicated the song to Anthony and said she's seen him in his shorts and girl's it's good. She also sang her new hit song 'Wonderful Life'. In her 30 minute performance she warmed
the audience and got them ready for the national phenomenon that was to follow.

For his encore song Anthony chose his hit song 'Rain'. Again the younger members of the audience rushed the stage as he reached out and touched their hands and for those of us sitting listening he reached out and touched out hearts. One avid admirer had produced a large star with lights around it, obviously denoting what Anthony is - a star.

If you don't catch Anthony on his current national tour I recommend you go see him when he appears anywhere near you in the future. He was on stage for a full 1 hour and 20 minutes of
non-stop singing. You can see him on the television or listen to his CDs but to actually see this dynamic performer live is an experience you will not forget. Go for it Anthony, the world is yours.

In closing I would like to say, as a mature person I would like to see him perform some of the great songs from Broadway. I am sure this young man would have another best selling CD on his hands if he looked at something like this.

Sugarfoot lays down for Anthony
Inpress Magazine

Miffed at having been OS when he last played his home town I was champing at the bit to get my watch on at Anthony Callea's gig at the Palais on Satdee night. A long dinner meant I missed the Eurodance stylings of Tina Cousins who by all accounts (well one person I spoke to) was rather good.

Twas a novel experience to sit up on the top deck, having previously scammed freebies down nearer the stage and initially I was worried we mightn't be able to see the diminutive Anth. Such fears were swiftly allayed as we were afforded a good as you get at Medallion Club at the Cougar Dome, but with the added bonus of being next to real-life celebs (okay, so it was just Ricki Lee with mark Holden behind us) Oh yeh, and the seats, while old were bloody comfortable.

The lights dimmed, the squealing reached Hansonesque levels and on to the stage our hero strutted to open with album track Take it to the Heart. Supported by a tight live band AC weaved his way around a few other album tunes and B-sides also turning his undisputed vocal excellence to some covers he wowed them with on Idol. His renditions of semi recent pop hits Bailamos and walking away put Enrique and Craig to shame, but were surpassed by his surprising cover of the old classic Route 66 which served to underline his versatility.

Current single Hurts so Bad went down a treat with the primarily pre teen plus parent crowd as they eagerly interacted with the engaging Melburnian

But we all knew the main reason we were there- to hear The prayer. Hataz may do their best to dismiss Anthony as pop fluff, but only a deaf mute could have a legitimate excuse for not praising his version. Having heard it butchered recently at a wedding and having listened to Bocelli- Dion cut, Anthony's is nothing short of phenomenal.

Having spied some hitherto music stands at the rear of the stage, the excitement started to build when the strings were brought out. He didn't disappoint. Closing my eyes, to the sniggers of the missus and some surrounding dockers, I experienced one of the best concert experiences of my life as Anthony's beautiful voice transported me past even the usual goosebumps I get at massive concert moments. Even the little bogan lad dragged along by his female relatives arose from his slumber to dribble at the brilliant display. Listening to this emotional performance is actually quite draining so it was a relief when he dropped the tempo following the big finish.

In addition to The prayer, I'd been stinging to see him perform his awesomely awesome rendition of one of my all time fave songsare Kelly's Ignition. Sadly this was to be the only lowlight. Countering my disappointment, though, was the soaring performance of that ancient favourite BOTW- I reckon there were a few people in the audience who would've gladly laid down their lives for Mr Callea at the end of that song.

The gig finished with the second single Rain, which Like Bon Jovi's It's My Life I hadn't loved before hearing it live. It's funny how songs can be made and other lessened when you hear them at a gig- judging by the standing ovation the crowd was giving, it's fair to say they thought he was pretty damn special. And he is!

While Casey may have gotten the sympathy vote from the Australian Public the real winner of the second series of Idol was clearly Anthony and, by extension, his legion of rabid fans. We can only hope that AI3 uncovers someone anywhere close to his talent- sadly with Kyle at the helm, we're likely to get someone as talented as Tamara Jaber.
Let there be a prayer that doesn't happen!

- Lauren Pratt

Anthony Callea's trademark song The Prayer has been played ad nauseam on radio but it still made a huge impact on the capacity crowd at Brother's League's Club on Friday night.
Tina Cousins opened the show with a surprisingly good live vocal and plenty of seductive moves, keeping the audience entertained. She performed some of the old favourites including Pray,
Mysterious Times, and her new hit Wonderful Life really got the audience in the mood to party.
But it was Callea's entrance that got the girls - and boys - screaming.
His band kicked in before Callea sauntered onto the stage and broke into song. He really is a sexy performer. With shirt half open and modern, spiky hair, every swivel of the hips resulted in screams from the audience.
But it wasn't just the expected teenage crowd of girls who were interested in the double act.
There were plenty of middle-aged women getting flustered over the young "Italian Stallion"...or maybe they were there just for the music.

And the music was good. Callea has a magnificent voice. It is rich, extremely powerful and controlled. He sang a few up-tempo songs that were perfect for dancing then slowed down for a number of ballads. But the jaw-dropping moment was when Callea sang The Prayer.
It is a song worth hearing performed live by Callea. He also threw in a few of his own catchy tunes but it was obvious he loves to sing a good ballad.

Callea and Cousins were not just two people who got on stage to sing then got off. They both
interacted and signed autographs after the show and chatted with members of the
audience who truly appreciated them.

Getting intimate with an Idol
City Messenger 03 Sep 07

Singing powerhouse Anthony Callea sure got the fans dancing and singing when he performed at The Gov on Friday night (August 31).

Callea filled one and half hours with pitch perfect ballads and high energy rock numbers which got the audience moving.

Opening the gig with a couple of up beat, unreleased tunes from his current album, Callea warmed up his vocals then slowed down the pace with Live For Love.

Tracks from his first album were not forgotten either - Hurts So Bad (for which he brought a fan on stage to sing backing vocals) and Rain made an appearance.
And of course, there was The Prayer which received a deserving standing ovation.
And those hoping to get up close and personal with the former Idol finalist got their wish when Callea invited fans to the front of the stage.

Funky covers were thrown into the mix including James Morrison's Undiscovered and Diana Ross' Upside Down.

Callea's relaxed and fun loving nature combined with his professionalism and flawless voice made fans grateful he added Adelaide to his tour.

The cast is a strong one. Anthony Callea is perfect as the somewhat detached Mark, the observer with the camera who cannot help but be caught up in life.

Excerpt from the review by Tara Simmonds

.....I’d missed the Idol mania surrounding Anthony Callea and had only a vague notion of who he was before arriving. Thankfully his talent was spotted by others and he was a welcome addition last night. ‘Nella Fantasia’ from The Mission, which he performed with Cantillation was haunting and immensely enjoyable. His surprisingly strong voice resonated throughout the piece and I’m sure he left a few mouths open in surprise at such beauty.
