Hegarty is known for his unique and moving voice, which has promted much pariase from the media. In an interview with the culture show, he describes Elizabeth Fraser of the Cocteau Twins as a major influence upon his singing, especially with the Crying Light.
As well as his work with Antony and the Johnsons, Hegarty has worked with a variety of artists. Hegarty provided the vocals for the Hercules & Love Affair single Blind, described by NME as “the best kind of dance record: physical and emotional, euphorically happy and deeply, irredeemably sad. It clips along weightlessly; all disco bass, trumpets and rippling synthesiser, as Antony, his voice like tears rolling down the cheeks of a beautiful 40-year-old woman, muses intoxicatingly on lost innocence and ageing.” On Joan as Police woman’s 2006 album, Real Life, Hegarty cowrite and sang on the song ‘I Defy’. Hegarty also provided Backing vocals for Lou Reed.
