We’re getting close to being just a mere month away from the full-length release of Anderson East‘s “Flowers of the Broken Hearted” (out on Sept. 18), and to commemorate that, I had to share this awesome video of Anderson performing the title track from the album for Balcony TV that he filmed recently. He’s one of only two solo acts that Cause A Scene has had play at the house more than once so far (Rebecca Roubion is the other), and for good reason. His smokey, raspy vocals are just too dang good not to get attached to them and he is really one of the ‘good guys’ in the Nashville music scene. The performance is refreshing and the host puts it perfectly (I think?) at the end, saying “So you got me. I didn’t expect to sound like that when I looked at you.” Anderson certainly has much, much more soul than you would think at first glance. Hope you enjoy the video, and be sure to be on the lookout for his new double album out next month.
ALSO, Anderson, along with another Cause A Scene house show guest, Holley Maher, Levi Weaver and Weaver At The Loom will be playing TONIGHT at The Rutledge. Details here.
