Americana / Folk / Singer-Songwriter
A singer and songwriter whose music is a potent, heartfelt fusion of soul, rhythm & blues, gospel, early rock & roll, and a dash of country, Anderson East was born in 1988 in Athens, Alabama, a small town not far from Huntsville. Born Michael Anderson, he grew up in a household where gospel music was favored and his grandfather was a Baptist preacher. There wasn't much pop or rock music in the Anderson household, so Michael tended to latch on to whatever he heard and analyze it carefully, trying to make sense of the bits and pieces of sound that comprised Led Zeppelin or Michael Jackson.
Anderson East’s debut album, Delilah, was released in 2015. Before the release he toured nationally as direct support for Sturgill Simpson. In addition to his own sold out headline shows he has toured with Brandi Carlile, The Lone Bellow, Jason Isbell, John Butler Trio, The Dixie Chicks, and Chris Stapleton. "Satisfy Me" was the first single released off the record. It instantly went viral and received regular radio airplay. NPR Music called Delilah a " …eclectic, fully formed debut album.” Daytrotter wrote "It's one of those 10-song records that's damned near perfect, traveling through the old, smoky bars of older days and down the twisted back roads of love." On July 15th 2015 East made his television debut on Late Night with Seth Meyers and also appeared on CBS This Morning Saturday in support of his album.
In 2018 Anderson East released highly anticipated album Encore.
