As a singer/songwriter, poet and choir director Čedo Antolić has been a part of the Croatian Christian music scene for four decades.

As a young man Antolić dedicated his time and talent to Christian music by writing songs, playing at  concerts and the Holy Mass at the Jesuit church in Fratrovac, Zagreb (1969). 

For years he has been playing in many other parishes in Zagreb: the parish of the Mother of God of Lourdes, the St. Peter's parish (he directed the Kefa choir from 2000 to 2005) and in the dominican parish of the Queen of the Holy Rosary (where he still directs the Hrid choir).

He also sang on the jazz album of the Swing again band and covered some of the best Croatian music hits on the CD titled Prolazi sve/Everything goes away (Dinaton, 2009).

His son Matija is also a musician (blues harp player). They play music together at the Holy Mass in the Queen of the Holy Rosary church.  They perform blues, country and gospel music including their original music. Čedo founded a quintet Bend na putu, playing gospel, jazz standards as well as their original songs.

Čedo Antolić has written music for the album called Pjesma svakodnevna/Everyday song released by Kršćanska sadašnjost in 1980. On that album a group of young musicians from Fratrovac (Zagreb) called Kyrios was put together by Josip Turčinović. With this group Antolić also had concerts at the seminary in Šalata (Zagreb) and performed the song Pjesma svakodnevna/Everyday song at the very first Uskrs fest.

In 1997 the double album of his original music Stvaranje/Creation was released by Hrvatski katolički zbor 'Mi' and in 2005 the album Jutro/Morning was released by Glas Koncila. Antolić is the author of the Porin awarded Christian songs Želim Ti dati najbolje/I want to give you the best of me (2001) and Svjetionik/Lighthouse (2009) sang by Željka Marinović.

He is the one of the most awarded authors at Uskrs fest. He also participates at a number of Christian music festivals such as Marija fest, Krapina fest, Bono fest, Bosco fest and Hodočašće u došašće festival in Pakrac.

He says that the greatest award of all is a chance to work and make music with the young people within the Catholic church.
