Show Review

Pairing up with our friends at Sofar Sounds, we hosted a special, intimate gathering in the basement of Baeble HQ earlier this year, introducing a handful of bands to a roomful of newly converted fans. See, the way these Sofar shindigs work is partygoers have no idea what lies in store for them until the musicians are before them. In the case of Florida native Anthony Hall, we were introduced to an extremely candid musician who sees no need in covering up some of the life experiences that inspired his songs. "Emotional", for example, was prompted by an admission that, as a focused, traveling musician, sometimes he fucks up a lot of relationships. "Kiss and Tell" is about the things you should be telling your buds about. All that honesty is paired by the kind of soulful, acoustic backdrop that'll give Jack Johnson a run for his money. All and all, Anthony's performance was one of several fantastic surprises that unfolded in our very own basement, thanks to what was an awesome event with Sofar Sounds.

Transcript

song because, like, I'm traveling a lot and I'm like super-focused, and I fuck up a lot of relationships.
So, that's what this song's about and I hope you guys understand.
I'm not a smooth talker either.
All right, let's do it, yeah, yeah. I need someone to... all right, so this song's called "Emotional".
Don't get too emotional baby
Don't get too emotional
Don't get too emotional baby
Don't get too emotional
Don't get too emotional baby
Don't get too emotional
'CauseI've been gone for weeks at a time
Baby if you're smiling keep me off your mind
And when you go to sleep at night
Don't wait for the car, I'm not gonna
drive
'Cos if I'm not coming I'm going
Singing my song, with the dawn I'll be rolling away, rolling away-ay
Baby now, I can't take your heart with me
Truth is I can't bear the weight
But I like you, and I like this
And I hope that you can understand, I'm just honest, I'm just honest
Yeah, yeah, but baby don't get
Don't get too emotional baby
Don't get too emotional
Don't get too emotional baby
Don't get too emotional
Don't get too emotional baby
Don't get too emotional
So we have a little fun, a little bit of that never hurt no-one
But don't ask questions that you don't really wanna know the answers to
We've got a good thing going, don't complicate it,
Don't wanna throw it away
Throw it away
Baby now, I can't take your heart with me
Truth is I can't bear the weight
But I like you, and I like this
And I hope that you can understand, I'm just honest, I'm just honest
Yeah, yeah, but baby don't get
Don't get too emotional baby

So don't get too emotional baby
Don't get too emotional
Don't get too emotional baby
Don't get too emotional
Please don't get too emotional baby
Don't get too emotional
Thank you, thank you.
Anyways I wrote this song "Kiss and Tell" it's because I see it, because I see a lack of it in relationships, and hopefully it will inspire some of you gentlemen to kiss and tell this way.
Don't kiss and tell your friends like "Oh yeah, she was like...you know", anyway, so this song's called "Kiss and Tell.
" She's beautiful and I am not
She's perfect and I am flawed
I don't know where I'd be at, if she
didn't have my back
Places that I could go
She is gonna be my home, oh lord
I like to kiss and tell her she's beautiful
I like to kiss and tell her sweet things
I like to kiss and tell her don't, don't let go
I like to kiss and tell everybody
I like to kiss and tell everybody
She's the kind of girl you wanna wake to in the morning
The kind of girl that makes life, your whole life unexplored
My spirit is calm whenever she's around
Well nothing feels wrong, oh, one more time
I like to kiss and tell her she's beautiful
I like to kiss and tell her sweet she is
I like to kiss and tell her darling, don't let go
I like to kiss and tell everybody
I like to kiss and tell everybody
I like to kiss and tell her, I say darling, you're fucking beautiful
I like to kiss and tell her how sweet she is
I like to kiss and tell her now please don't let me go
I like to kiss and tell
I like to kiss and tell her she's beautiful
I like to kiss and tell her how sweet she is, yeah
I like to kiss and tell her don't, don't let go
I like to kiss and tell everybody
I like to kiss and tell everybody
I like to kiss and tell everybody
I like to kiss and tell everybody
Thank you, thank you, thank you guys.

Artist Bio

Hailing from the sunny shores of Delrey Beach, South Florida, Anthony Hall, a spry 21 year old, plays live for anyone and everyone who'll listen. "I'll never turn down a jam session! No matter how sick or tired or busy I am, I'm always down to jam for people." Flying solo, Anthony started writing and playing Guitar/Piano at the beginning of his sophomore year of High School. Since then he's shared the stage with acts such as; Hey Monday, The Scene Aesthetic, Trevor Hall, Mayday Parade, and many others. "I've tried starting bands, but it never seemed to work-out. I love collaborating with other musicians though."

Crediting his accomplishments so far with a lot of practice and hustle, Anthony embodies the spirit of musical grit and determination. "When I first started playing music, my own family didn't even want to hear me play. I spent many hours by my 14 year old self, practicing!" Now signed to MBK Entertainment based in New York City, Anthony's hard work ethic and talent has risen him in eyes of some of the major music industry's top scouts.

When asked about his musical influences, he replied, "I've been influenced by artists like Van Morrison, Justin Timberlake, the Rolling Stones, Bob Dylan, Jason Mraz and John Mayer. However his strongest influences come from the smallest things, "I listen to music, but it's much more than that. From a production head-space I dissect and study sound, instrumentation, and technique. From an artist's perspective I really dissect song structure, phrasing, and style. Sandwich 'em both together and you've got my music-makin' self."

When asked about the importance of his craft, Anthony puts it simply, "Music is not my life, but my life-line."
