Origins

“If I were not a physicist, I would probably be a musician. I often think in music. I live my daydreams in music. I see my life in terms of music.” 
― Albert Einstein

Antiquity was formed in the early nineties primarily as a live act in the New York area. Over the years, it transformed into a studio project centred around songwriting and musical skills, drawing from a cadre of professional musicians and singers. The philosophy has always been, the right musician and singer for the right song. Another part of the philosophy has been to mold the song around the singer, letting the singer develop the melody. We believe that helps the singer make the song their own. Music is perhaps the art that presents the most philosophical questions. We take songwriting as a craft, not making beats but the objective and subjective quality in music. No one is the owner of all truth in this world, but good music, like cream finds its way to the top and we hope our music finds it’s way to your heart.
