I have never heard such a passionate range of vocals as Anderson East’s on his electrifying new album Encore.
This thirty year old musician from Alabama has an extraordinarily gratifying sound and a relaxed style on the first song entitled “King For a Day.” The third song “House Is A Building” has Anderson explaining that home is a feeling and brick walls do not mean anything without the people you love. Anderson East paints a beautiful picture over a captivating keyboard experience on “If You Keep Leaving Me.”
The feeling of this song resonates with you long after the last note has hit. The Micheal Jackson like vocals on the next song “Girlfriend” are just as impressive as the electric instrumental interludes. Anderson has a lot of help from the horn section and a combination of background vocals on “Surrender.” Next Anderson East showcases his depth incorporating a dragging voice with “All On My Mind” which features a booming, fiery background. “Without You” flows with a silky smooth touch and an angelic resonance.
The last song titled “Cabinet Door” tells a heartwarming story about a life well lived over a gospel choir and organ. Encore shifts perfectly between soft and sensual to upbeat with unforgettable rhythms. This album deserves to be heard by the world, which is why Anderson East is on tour overseas right now performing Encore.
This album also deserves to be heard by you, so make sure to bless your ears with this new masterpiece.
