Music Video: Anderson East - Learning
When we came across his gritty, tender vocals and engaging retro-soul sound early last year, it didn't take us long to realize that Alabama native Anderson East was set for bigger things. Drawing on country, gospel, r&b and soul influences, East's passionate vocal delivery and personal songwriting animated the soulful grooves and bright horns of his Muscle Shoals-inspired sound with the kind of emotional authenticity that proved to be genuinely moving in its heart-on-the-sleeve sincerity. With last year's release of his 'Delilah' album being met with critical acclaim and national T.V. performances, the buzz around his soul-soothing musical vibe is ever growing, and he is currently embarking on a headlining U.S. tour of his own. Back to showcase his talent with his contribution to renowned producer Dave Cobb's all-star collaborative 'Southern Family' compilation album, Anderson offers a touching tribute to his father with the organ accents, rousing groove and bright horns of 'Learning's appreciation for paternal guidance.
