Editorial Reviews

This Atlanta singer/songwriter has been hailed by critics as the Bill Withers of a new generation. On his debut, Tony creates soulful urban tunes inspired by the human experience. His immaculate blend of blues, R&B, and hip-hop creates a distinct sound that breaks open a new dimension in soul music. Pleasures, desires, and life struggles are passionately conveyed through his husky yet intimate vocal delivery, descriptive lyrics, heartfelt melodies, and out of the box acoustic rhythms.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very Very Nice!!!!! April 3, 2005
By Binky
Format:Audio CD
A brilliant piece of work. If you like India Arie's work, do yourself a favor and go get Anthony David. When I first heard 'Cold Turkey' on XM radio, I immediately thought "This dude reminds me of a female India Arie". Well I did my research and come to find out, they are actually very good friends and also writing partners. He shows up as Tony Harrington in the credits on her CD's. Where her music is more produced (dont get me wrong, I love India), Anthony's music is more raw, like its just him and his guitar. I went and bought the CD having heard 'Cold Turkey' only at that time. Risky move but well worth it. This is one soulful brother with a kinda raspy voice 'a la Anthony Hamilton' that you feel in your bones. I would love to hear him perform live. Anthony, please come to the MD/DC/VA area!!!!!! You got a fan for life here.

Honorable Mentions:

Spittin Game
Krooked Kop
Cheating Man
The Water/ The Fire
Believe Me
GA Peach

Oh shoot, the whole thing is Tight so just go get it!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Feels good November 5, 2004
Format:Audio CD
If the post Mis-educated acoustic guitar wailing Lauren Hill has emancipated you and a mere pluck from India Arie can put you in an orgasmic state, then Anthony David's "3 Chords & The Truth" will indubitably give your ears an untainted does of freedom.

The CD is a mix of Folk, R&B, and Caribbean rhythms lead by David's beatific strings. The quality of David's work should be no surprise to Detroiters since the sampling listeners received on poet extraordinaire Jessica Care Moore's debut CD, "The Funk Soul Grove."

"The Water/The Fire," "Heartstrings," and "Part Of My Life" are all expressive sensual ballads accompanied by delicate Congo drums. Unlike typical love singers, David asks for compassion instead of bleakly begging for it.

At best David is average singer with limited range that he smartly stays within. His raspy voice and passive style is exceptionally similar to guitarist Bill Whitters.

"My life flash right before my eyes and came to the part about you, we can shiver at the same vibration if you're nervous too," croons the Atlanta native in the poetic "Yes."

He's superman lover in "Spittin' Game," speaks against racial profiling in "Krooked Kop," and does some soul searching in the melodious "Part of my life."

"3 Chords and The Truth" is beautiful escape into a different part of the neo soul world that we scarcely ever see.

If you love India.Arie, you will LOVE Anthony David. His music is very mellow and every song is enjoyable. I would highly recommend this if you are into new-soul music.

Finally a true artist that is singing real soulful songs. Anthony Davis is taking music by to the time when songs made you cry, laugh, and just feel good. This is a great album.

I had an opportunity to see this young man perform live. He is a skilled guitarist with MUCH urban flavor. You could liken him to Anthony Hamilton, in spirit and style. But he is still richly unique. I play this CD EVERYDAY!! I enjoy this CD sooo much each song is better than the next. My favorite songs are "Believe Me" and "Cheatin Man", because they hit sadly close to home. Nevertheless, Anthony David, you have been wonderful therapy for my broken heart....Whenever you are in the DC Area, I want to be there to support you because you have surely been supporting me and you don't even know it!!! Job Well Done Anthony David.....More More More!

4.0 out of 5 stars Thank God for XM Satellite Radio April 26, 2006
Format:Audio CD
This is a must have. If it wasn't for XM Satellite Radio, I would have never known Anthony David existed. My favorite cuts: "Spittin Game", "Cold Turkey", and "Cheatin Man". I look forward to more sounds from Anthony David in the future.

5.0 out of 5 stars while Krooked Kop will make your blood boil August 11, 2006
Format:Audio CD
3 Chords & The Truth is the debut album from Anthony David. The album contains 14 songs including the remix of GA Peach. With exception from the reggae song 50/50 Love the album is pure soul music.

In a passionate and compelling way Anthony plays the guitar chords and tells his truth. Anthony's songs about life and love and about the Krooked Kop are items we all can relate to. When listening to the Spittin' Game your temperature might pleasantly rise while Krooked Kop will make your blood boil. It's cleaver how Anthony David has packed these steamy and hot emotions in an album that is so very cool. Yes in the first track it looks like life has just begun and the world has just been created it feels supernatural and fresh. Georgia girls look out now because guys from all over the world now know how sweet the Peach is.(TA)

Stand Out Tracks: Yes, Cold Turkey, Spittin'Game, GA Peach, Believe me, Ain't Enough For Me, Part of My Life

5.0 out of 5 stars Something refreshingly different September 21, 2005
By Jason
Format:Audio CD
3 Chords & The Truth needed to come out a long time ago. Unless you are a big fan of soul music, this is not your cup of tea. However, this reminds me so much of Bill Withers, I can't help but love it. He manages to smoothly go through 14 tracks that are, for the most part, strictly instruments. Yet another good thing about Anthony David. Beat machines are huge in Atlanta, and he still only uses it once, on the last track...for a remix, to the song I personally just didn't feel. His best song by far HAS to be Cheating Man (it is man, they need to correct it on Amazon). It's 3 Chords & The Truth. He literally only plays 3 chords. For a debut album, it is a very eclectic sampling of what he is capable of. I want to see what he'll do if he goes mainstream though. People change when the money flashes. Hopefully he won't eh?
