R&B / Soul
Georgia based Anthony David, best known for his Grammy nominated hit Words, merges Southern flavor with new school grooves for an exciting soul sound. Savannah born, David moved to Atlanta to pursue his music career after a short stint in the military. In Atlanta, he befriended India Arie over their mutual love of 60s soul and David composed a song for Aries Acoustic Soul in 2002.
He began performing several years later gathering a loyal local fan base. Using Anita Baker and Bill Withers as inspiration, he developed a rough, raspy vocal style, which complements his poetic lyrics.
He released his first independent album, Three Chords & The Truth in 2004 and followed up with The Red Clay Chronicles and an international tour. Davids Words won the 2007 SoulTracks Readers’ Choice Award for Song of the Year.
He counts first lady, Michelle Obama, among his fans.
