The Soulful Sound of Anderson East
    • THURSDAY, JULY 02, 2015

    Anderson East is a native of Athens, AL and carries the spirit and sound within every piece of his music. With a crisp, soulful voice that resembles Ray LaMontagne down to the tee, East reinvents an anachronistic world and shapes it to the new millennium. While many artists are reliving the sounds of the 60s and aggressively trying to replicate icons like Al Green and Sam Cooke, East takes a more acoustic, laid-back approach. No doubt there is a decent implementation of brass instruments, in which horns and saxophones embellish his raspy drawl, but its the placidity of his music that makes East an enjoyable and distinctive listen.

    In the video for his song "Devil in Me," Anderson East sings passionately in a wooden studio that seems like a relic from the past. Though some of the equipment could only be from the 21st century, there is no mistaking the vintage nature of antique lamps and upright pianos giving the atmosphere a timeless vibe. The song harks on many classic subjects: love, alcohol, god, you name it. His vocal rasp is undisturbed yet merciful, and one cannot do anything else but enjoy. Make sure to be on the look out for Baeble's session with Anderson East going live next week. Anderson East's debut album Delilah is out on July 14th.
