Anthony David - Acey Duecy
WHave you ever noticed that most people don't catch onto certain things until they are dropped upon their heads like bags of heavy bricks from the tops of the highest buildings? Then and only then, in that moment of clarity, do the objects of focus become so apparent that hindsight not only lends 20/20 vision, but also spotlights that which blinded us from seeing them in the first place. With that in mind, let us focus on the career of soul singer Anthony David.
He wrote "A Part of My Life" for Acoustic Soul, India.Arie's multiple-GRAMMY-nominated album, and supported the album on global tours as a background singer. His first project, 3 Chords & the Truth, was hailed by the Atlanta Journal Constitution as "the best record to come out (of Atlanta) since Usher's Confessions." His second album, Red Clay Chronicles followed up that greatness however without major label support, however, the world turned a deaf ear.
Hindsight, as a consequence, is 20/20, and Acey Duecy is a "grand debut" that shines like a polished gem on India.Arie's newly-christened Soulbird label. The album, in all respects however, is a "greatest hits" compilation of David's first two independent releases. With that in mind, new and old fans alike can appreciate the selection of "Words" (featuring India.Arie) as the lead single, which is an ultimate testimony of true friendship and the long road to a major label record deal. Now, with the release of Acey Duecy, the stars in the musical universe have finally aligned.
To me, Acey Duecy brings real music back—with a vengeance! The album is all substance, without standard-grade filler or commercial gloss, and devoid of manufactured hooks and super-producer beats! Every track lives, breathes and resembles the soul of the man behind the music.
Get ready to groove...
My Personal Picks.
Smoke One: I don't even get down with the green but the melody on this joint makes you wanna puff and pass...
Words: India.Arie joins him to jam... nice single definitely.
