“As Above, So Below.” Heady stuff for an R&B album title, but the Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Anthony David has never been the kind of soul artist to “speak loudly, but say nothing.” His debut release, “3 Chords and The Truth”, won critical acclaim and with the Grammy-nominated duet, “Words” David and long-time friend India.
Arie consolidated their award-winning singing and songwriting partnership. Often considered the heir-apparent to troubadour Bill Withers, with “As Above, So Below”, David is elbowing a space for intelligent lyrics and a grown man’s voice in a scene that’s in a race to be young.
A student of Wither’s lyricism; the masculine rhythms of Beres Hammond and Frankie Beverly; the storytelling of Slick Rick, T.I., and Jay-Z; and the blues of Lightning Hopkins, Howling Wolf, and T-bone Walker, David is ushering back the kind of masculine soul that men can identify with and that ladies can nestle upto.
