Anthony David's honey coated tenor lures you into a hypnotic hold with undeniable desire. Coupled with his eclectic melodies, you're bound to have an instant eargasm.
On his fifth studio album, The Powerful Now, the Grammy award-nominated singer/songwriter delivers his unique brand of blues, funk, rock and soul—with a bit of EDM. Featuring superb production by Shannon Sanders and Eddie "Gypsy" Stokes, The Powerful Now is David's first release on Shanachie Entertainment. It's a sonic testimony of next-level evolution.
"This album I thought of as if I had no other album," Anthony notes. "I didn't have many expectations. So any idea I had that I might have thought 'oh, they may not like that from me,' I did it anyway! I definitely wanted to work with the sounds that are current but in my own way. I'm in the soul vein and I don't mind the title of neo-soul; it conflicts with what's popular in black music right now, which is either way ratchet or super retro. I have no interest in having all these sounds available and making something that sounds exactly like the 70s. But I also don't want to purposely make noise which some things I hear seem to be doing in attempt to being progressive."
We at MLive feel that out of the twelve songs on the album, the best nine are more than enough to be placed in the spotlight! Becoming the MLive Radio Hard Disk means we play a song of the album every hour on weekdays up to Friday 21:00. We congratulate Anthony David with this great album!
