Anthony David is a Grammy nominated singer/songwriter out of Atlanta and is President Obama’s favourite new artist. He wrote, produced, and toured with India.Arie in her early days (“Part of my life”, “There’s hope”) and has performed on BBC’s ‘Later With Jools Holland’. He released his third studio album- As Above So Below on Spring 2011 on Purpose Records/E1 Music group in the US and Dome Records in Europe.

As Above, So Below sees David team up with a new producing partner from Nashville- Shannon Sanders (Heather Headley, India.Arie). From the gospel-rock political What God Said, to his stunning opening single 4evermore - featuring fellow Atlanta vocalist Algebra and rapper Phonte from Little Brother – to his confident remake of Tears for Fears’ Everybody Wants To Rule The World, on which he shares vocals with his cousin, Shawn Stockman from Boyz II Men, it gives you Anthony David unvarnished. There’s even a seven-minute acoustic tale about life on the ghetto streets, “Backstreet”.

Often described as the heir-apparent to his early influence Bill Withers, David is elbowing a space for intelligent lyrics and a grown man’s voice in a scene that’s in a race to be young. A student of Wither’s lyricism; the masculine rhythms of Beres Hammond and Frankie Beverly; the storytelling of Slick Rick and Jay-Z; and the blues of Lightning Hopkins, Howling Wolf, and T-Bone Walker, David is ushering back the kind of masculine soul that men can identify with and that ladies can nestle up to.
