Anderson East
’s highly anticipated full-length debut, Delilah, is out now to widespread acclaim on Low Country Sound/Elektra Records—the first release on producer Dave Cobb’s new imprint.
Of the music, NPR Music’s Ann Powers asserts, “…a homecoming of sorts for this Athens, Ala., native, whose shoofly pie-sweet drawl and fondness for Wilson Pickett-style shouts fit perfectly within the classic soul settings he and Cobb create…East has a gruff way with phrasing and a lot of youthful enthusiasm, but he's learning his way into mastery. There’s thought behind every rhythmic push and melismatic twist,” while Yahoo Music declares, “It’s hard to not get excited by this authentic-sounding slice of southern R&B courtesy of Nashville’s Anderson East…No excess, expressive stuff, and the sort of sincere musical statement 2015 sorely needs.”
Additionally, the first single, “Satisfy Me,” debuts this week at #28 on the AAA Radio chart with rotation at various tastemaker stations, including L.A.’s KCSN, Philadelphia’s WXPN, Nashville’s WRLT and Kansas City’s KTBG. A live video of the song, which was shot at the legendary Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, AL, recently premiered at NPR Music.
In celebration of the release, East will make his network television debut on “Late Night with Seth Meyers” this Wednesday, July 15. Of his recent performance at Triple A Radio’s NON-COMMvention, Dan DeLuca of the Philadelphia Inquirer praises, “Anderson East was an eye opener. I assumed the Alabama singer was a roots-rock-country singer, from bills I’d seen his name on. But he is in fact a wicked soul wailer with a huge voice, a skinny white guy with a raspy, weathered sound coming out his body that defied expectation. Definitely worthy of further investigation.” See below for complete tour scheduled. 
Of Anderson, producer Dave Cobb (Sturgill Simpson, Jason Isbell), comments, “You don’t hear voices like that everyday. The first time I saw him was at the Bluebird in Nashville—he started to sing and shut the place down. And he had the charm and wit to completely hold the audience in the palm of his hand. When I got the chance to have my imprint LCS, he was the first person I wanted to sign. When he sings you can hear the soil and landscape of great southern soul in his voice and he’s a amazing writer as well.”
