Product Description

As Above, So Below. The ancient Hermetic saying from the legendary Emerald Tablet declares what is the above is from the below, and the below is from the above, and all these works of wonders are from the one (the source). Heady stuff for an R&B album title, but the Grammy-nominated singer/songwriter Anthony David has never been the kind of soul artist to speak loudly, but say nothing. With David, the sage psalm aptly describes the ruminations of a seeker whose walk travels over roots, soul, blues, reggae and hip hop to unabashedly express the unexpressed in men s souls, from the carnal and the provocative to the unsure and the vulnerable. Digging deeper with every project, David continues to peel back layers of public identity, political chutzpah, and playa propaganda to use what lies beneath as the clay for something honest and real; culls inspiration not only from the headlines but also from the Savannah soils of the singer s birth home from tea parties to magnolia makeouts. Fans of Georgia Peach and ATL Sunshine know David s Southern roots run deep.

About the Artist

Georgia's son with the famously raspy voice never dreamed of becoming a singer, not with sangin' kin who included members of the multi-platinum singing groups Xscape and Boyz II Men. So, the practical David entered the Army straight of high school. Quickly learning the military wasn't his bag, at 19, David left after one stint, moved to Atlanta, and entered trade school to become a sound engineer. For four years, David was an everyman: quietly writing lyrics, singing to himself, listening and learning from behind the studio boards, and beginning to nurture the seeds of a dream. He helped form and briefly recorded with funk/rap outfit, El Pus, on their Virgin Records debut, Hoodlum Rock. Eventually, at the urging of friend India.Arie, the 23 year-old David finally picked up the guitar and...it felt like home. Local fans soon came for an invitation to David's musical sanctuary and suddenly the ordinary was extraordinary. Even after David began touring the world as a background singer and co-writer for India.Arie, he never forgot the beauty of the ordinary. As conceived through David's pen, there's magic in the every day, an alchemy that Brash Music heard in 2004 when they signed him to his first record deal. The interiors and exteriors of regular life were acoustically elevated to high art on his debut, 3 Chords and The Truth. A phone call in the middle of the night becomes a serenade. A loving mama's boy grows into the father he once despised. A caller's invitation to love becomes a standout tune on a Grammy-winning album with "Part of My Life" on India.Arie's Acoustic Soul. With guitar, dry wit, and a voice that instantly reads sincere, David consistently toured the college and coffeehouse circuit on the strength of the universally received 3 Chords...project. Not bad for a "street taught" singer, guitarist, and songwriter. With the Grammy-nominated duet, "Words," David and long-time friend Arie continued their award-winning singing and songwriting partnership, this time for a radio hit that originally appeared in 2006 on his sophomore and final release for Brash, The Red Clay Chronicles. The single received repeat business on his major label debut, the Billboard Top 30 R&B album Acey Ducey, for Universal/Republic. The Acey Ducey compilation reflected the lighter, jazzier acoustic soul of his debut and the introduction of heavier electronic music elements and moodier introspections from his sophomore indie collection, The Red Clay Chronicles, introducing David's early catalog to an international audience. While "Words" got national airplay and reached #53 on the Billboard R&B charts, searing confessions like "Better Than," the five-finger cover of Level 42's "Something About You," and warm hallmarks to home like "Kinfolk" and "Smoke One" from Red Clay Chronicles got Anthony David the critical acclaim and a loyal, ever-expanding fan base. Now, with As Above, So Below, David is looking to marry his collection of disparate fans, those who discovered him as a college circuit acoustic singer, those who loved his electrosoul meets hip hop hipster fare from Red Clay..., and those who celebrated the spiffed up blue-collar boy's new Hollywood styling and full band productions on his last promo tours for Acey Ducey. It's time to solidify his fans for a career of longevity, with his own imprint (Rolling Mojo--named after his first car), a new label partnership between E1 Entertainment and Purpose Music Group, and a new producing partner in Grammy-winner and Nashville songwriter/producer Shannon Sanders (Heather Headley, Johnny Lang, Robert Randolph), David is looking to make an artistic and commercial statement with his third original studio release. A known humorist and fresh bachelor to whom much is projected, David reveals more of his worldview, his character, to fill in the blanks for fans. From the gospel-rock political tome, "God Said," to his duet cover of Tears for Fears' "Everybody Wants To Rule The World, featuring A.D.'s cousin, Shawn Stockman, David gives you A.D. unvarnished. There's even an acoustic seven-minute dough boy tale for the street-lifers, and, of course, even more of David's rare brand of honest unburdening that tells his listeners they aren't alone in their thoughts. Often considered the heir-apparent to troubadour Bill Withers, with As Above, So Below, 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, T.I., 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. With As Above, the thinker extends nourishment for the mind. With As Below, the lover provides nourishment for the flesh. And, with his latest release, Anthony David ever remains nourishment for the soul.

Customer Reviews

Anyone who fell in love with his first disc will not be dissapointed.
D. Baker
While the whole thing is good from start to finish, I love, love, love 'Let Me In' - I've listened to it so many times, it's just ridiculous!
DeeDee
A wonderful piece of work by a young artist who is true to tradition and shows how a modern blend of this music is right for today.

Atlanta native Anthony David has been making music for a number of years on the independent soul scene. While he has been critically lauded on numerous occasions, the adoration by critics and fans didn't necessarily translate into fame. In 2008, things seemed to turn around for Anthony when he signed a deal with major label Universal Records. He released his major label debut "Acey Duecy", which was an album comprised mostly of songs from his two indie albums- 2004's "Three Chords And The Truth" and 2006's "The Red Clay Chronicles". Despite receiving a little airplay on radio and video stations, the album stalled- largely because Anthony didn't really fit in with the current music scene. In 2011, he went to E1 Music to release his new album "As Above So Below", only this time, it's an album comprised of all new material. He enlisted the talents of production team Drew Ramsey and Shannon Sanders, who are best known for their work with Heather Headley, Robert Randolph & The Family Band, Jonny Lang, and Eric Benet.

He starts the album off with the guitar heavy title track "As Above So Below", while leading into the uptempo "Let Me In". Phonte of The Foreign Exchange and fellow indie neo-soul singer Algebra Blessett guests on the first single "4evermore". He tells the story of people facing difficult times on "Reach Ya", while addressing religious fundamentalism on the controversial "God Said". He duets with his cousin Shawn Stockman of Boyz II Men on the Tears For Fears cover "Everybody Wants To Rule The World". The track "Keep You Around" bears a slight nod to Slick Rick's "Hey Young World", and shows his aversion to philandering on "Girlfriend". The album ends with the nearly seven minute acoustic ballad "Backstreet" which tells a haunting morality tale.

After ACEY DEUCY, I kinda thought that dude here was gonna be a one-hit wonder. Thank God that I was wrong, because this latest release is better than his first, and that's kinda hard to come by these days. I am so digging his voice and delivery and he obviously know how to carry the music that compliments his style. Anyone who fell in love with his first disc will not be dissapointed. Anyone trying him out for the first time, well, just sit back and relax, cause you're in for a soulful experience with a very talented artist. If you don't like it, then you just wasn't trying.

Never heard of this guy, but saw (and loved) the video for '4evermore' and decided to check him out. Since the reviews were really good, I decided to download the CD and I'm so glad I did. This guy is really good! His sound is really soulful and I love his voice. While the whole thing is good from start to finish, I love, love, love 'Let Me In' - I've listened to it so many times, it's just ridiculous!

If you like real music and songs that are actually about something (hey, and you can understand what he's saying!), then you should check this out. Anthony David, I think I love you!

See classic material like this that just goes under the radar. How can this be. I mean this project includes such inspiring tracks that is difficult to believe that it is not in the top 5 on the R&B charts. Track 4, 4EVER More with Algebra and Phon Tiga is just about as much as a classic as ever. I can listen to it on. How is it that clowns especially like M&M get to be considered the best rapper when Phonte, delivers with such clarity, rhythm, soul and harmony (he is the bees knees) also check for Phonte on the latest Pharoahe Monch(We Are Renegades), which is equally substantial) and be so under exposed is a mystery to me. That is exactly why I get disgusted with the music industry. Nevertheless, if you want thoughtprovoking unity promoting songs with a collective spirit then you should definately support this soul brother who is growing with each new project, without a doubt purchase this for you collection.

I came to know who Anthony David is via satellite radio. When I heard his cover of "There is Something About You," I immediately began to wonder, "Who is this guy?" Since then, I have been a fan and will be a fan for life, hands down. If you ever have an opportunity to see him live, you will love him even more! One of my favorites!!!!

I only heard about Anthony David due to the song with Algebra. I looked him up on YouTube and fell in love with his voice. This CD is great from start to finish. If you love real R&B and Soul music with contemporary feel to it you will love it also. Highly recommend!

I orginally bought the CD for Anthony's hit song, "4evermore", and was pleasantly surprised of the other songs on his CD that I really like. Good CD to have in your collection.
