Saturday Music Spotlight: Anthony David (@antneedee)


I fell in love with dude's voice by stumbling across the song "Yes" from the 3 Chords & The Truth album. It was quickly added to my "Special Mellow Moments" mix. 

 

And it's impossible not to fall in love with his duet "Words" with India.Arie from The Red Clay Chronicles album. The man's voice is just butter. Or syrup. Okay buttery syrup on a steaming biscuit. 

Last week, his new album As Above, So Below dropped. Someone was kind enough to gift me with it. "Let me in" is begging done the right way and "4evermore" f. Algebra is catchy as all get out. "Keeping you around" has an infectious reggae beat that caught my attention right away. It's rare that I play an album all the way through without skipping any songs but this is one that's worthy. 

Here's the video for 4evermore:


Enjoy your weekend! Anyone else have some good music to shout out today?

He's totally slept on. Acey-Duecy is a good album too. He's touring now, I hope to catch him.

Maybe you could pick a wedding song from one of these? IJS... 312 songs later.

SpkTruth2Pwr said...

Haha you said butter syrup on a steaming biscuit? I didn't really know about him until "Words". So please believe I just copped the song "Yes" and I am about to preview the newest album on iTunes.

know she hasn't had an album in forever and a day, but I was jamming out to Heather Headley today, inspired by her rendition of "Jesus is Love"

maureen palmer said...

Michael Baisden keeps him on rotation.

Reads4Pleasure said...

I've been so busy playing his last mixtape that I didn't even realize the album was out. Thanks to this post, I've been playing 4Evermore all day!

CorettaJG said...

Love him. I would have "Words" constantly on repeat.

Cha Keziah said...

Buying now. Thanks for the new music!

Cherelle D. Mattox said...

Yes indeed. I have Eric Roberson, Algebra, Foreign Exchange, and Anthony David in heavy rotation.

DCSquared said...

I LOVE HIM!! He's hot in ATL!! So glad you spotlighted this! Hopefully the word will get around!!

Carmen Jones said...

Ah...this is soooo what I needed to hear right now. I fell in love with his voice hearing him at this spot in Santa Monica before he was signed and said "his sound is what we need".

Alegbra is another artist who is slept on.

Crazy thinking of the type of garbage that gets to mainstream when we have real talent and art as some type of new underground.

Thanks for sharing!!
