Good writing, a nice showcase of vocal ability and strong melodies JA shows us why he should be on the same playing field as artists such as Eric Roberson, Darien Brockington, Raheem Devaughn etc... On this path he travels we should see big things this artist in the very near future

Jarrard Anthony is a creative guy. Musically, Ready To Live, is a mixture of the kind of arrangements favored by today’s performers of R&B music but with an added quality: What marks Anthony as an artist with a fertile mind is his ability to imagine different ways to tell that age-old story about the relationship between men and women.

One minute Anthony is taking a man and a woman on a millennia long journey to find the right time for them to connect. A few tracks later, the Virginia native likens a house with no distractions as being higher than the highest high. The mid-tempo “Never See Her Again” tells the story of a man who who’s love for a woman is reincarnated three times before they can finally get together. The first time, he is a pauper and she a princess promised to an evil prince in another land. Next, the two are slaves separated when their owner ships the man to another plantation.

The second track, “Cloud Ten,” sets up a scenario that plenty of working parents can appreciate: nobody’s home and a couple has nothing but time to concentrate on each other. Anthony uses the song to describe a situation where a couple dances together uninhibited. Anybody who has ever been in that situation knows that’s a pretty good feeling, and Anthony’s description of a couple turning their home into a dance floor captures the fleeting moment of freedom that is a part of modern parenthood.

Anthony also displays an ability to create in different sub-genres of R&B. “I Love You” is a mid-tempo duet with Patricia Covington that sports an 1970s vibe. Anthony follows that retro track with “Invisible,” an up-tempo piece of electronica in which Anthony sings about his desire to escape from the grid.

This is one of the best neo-soul albums I have heard in a while. Definitely a must have if you truly love music. Love how you can really feel what he is singing and relate to some of it. Keep up the good work man.
