Anderson East Artist To Watch - July 2015

July’s Artist To Watch is Anderson East
Anderson East is an artist that many of us saw for the first time (as with Meg Mac) at Non-Comm. The roots-rocker hails from Athens, Alabama, went to Middle State University, and is now based out of Nashville.

East’s songs are steeped in Southern soul, R&B and Muscle Shoals grooves. Onstage he channels Wilson Pickett’s and Otis Redding’s raw soul power with a hot, sweaty, and sexy rock swagger.
