Watch List: Anderson East Wears His Heart On A Soulful Sleeve

With an arresting, Americana-infused musical sensibility that cohesively draws on the best instincts of country, gospel and soul, East proved irresistible with his from-the-heart lyricism and passionately urgent delivery.

From Amazon Music to Shazam, and from Late Night with Seth Myers to Rolling Stone, East has has earned unceasing praise for his eclectically-inspired soulfulness, and here he proves exactly why with a typically energetic and soulful session for KEXP.
