Anderson East is the real deal. He’s incredible live with a truly soulful Sam Cooke meets Joe Cocker approach to his interpretation of blue-eyed rhythm and soul. Debut record, produced by Dave Cobb and recorded at the legendary Fame Studios in Muscle Shoals, is out on Elektra July 14.

East has been taking the stage in support of artists: Sturgill Simpson, Brandi Carlile, John Butler Trio and Jason Isbell.
