Watch List: Anderson East Says 'Find 'Em, Fool 'Em and Forget 'Em'
With a soulfully inflected, folk/Americana infused musical sensibility that draws its emotional import from his deeply felt appreciation for the blues, gospel and r&b, Nashville-based Alabama native and multi-instrumentalist Anderson East can pack a gut-wrenching punch with an acoustically inspired, heart-breaking earthiness, or just as equally get the blood pumping with a rousing intensity, the raspy grit of his stunningly emotive voice breathtakingly moving in its passion and honesty.
After several earlier releases, his standout talent caught the attention of renowned Nashville producer Dave Cobb, and the two set to work on developing East's upcoming 'Delilah' album for Cobb's Low Country Sound imprint label via Elektra Records. With the album set for a spring release, East has in recent times been touring with Sturgill Simpson and Kristen Diable as he looks forward to appearing at the Atlantic Records/Nieman Marcus Showcase at this year's SXSW.
In anticipation of his album's release, here East visits the legendary Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, Alabama to record a live rendition of the George Jackson and Rick Hall penned song, 'Find 'Em, Fool 'Em and Forget 'Em'.
