iTunes Editors’ Notes

After writing some key songs on India.Arie’s 2001 breakout album Acoustic Soul, Anthony David put out a few independent releases that showcased his own vision of acoustic soul. His 2008 major-label debut features the best songs from those early independent releases: 2004’s Three Chords & the Truth and 2006’s The Red Clay Chronicles. Most modern R&B performers—the good ones—end up making albums that feel like they were constructed in a laboratory, but Acey Duecy averts any cold, processed feelings. As an acoustic guitarist, singer, and songwriter, David falls into the tradition of Bill Withers, and he retains the spirit of his forefather: a soulful everyman singing about life’s everyday concerns with full-bodied sincerity. Songs like “Smoke One” and “Krooked Kop” make this more of a lifestyle statement than a strict program of tunes for lovers. Musically, Acey Duecy ranges in material from gentle club songs (“Something About You,” “Stop Playin’”) to Southern rap in the mold of David’s ATL brethren Goodie Mob (“Kinfolk,” “GA Peach”). Still, he's at his best on “Cheatin’ Man,” “Cold Turkey,” and “Spittin’ Game.”

Customer Reviews

LOVE IT!

Contrary to some of the negative comments concerning his songs being recycled. I am one of his new fans. Most people don't understand how the music industry works. This album is lovely. The brother is a skilled lyricist. A gift that not many people possess. I am glad that he has finally came to the attention of a major record label. Please support him. I like his originality, and his vocals.

to clarify

yes these are some songs that were on previous releases..but mr. anthony david has gone major now so all of the fans have to share with the rest of the buying public..he is no longer independent now so this is nothing new.

JUST BUY IT!!

I was very impressed with light and breezy approach David Anthony applied to this project. Plus the subject matter is relavent to everyday life and everyday love. It was my intention to download a few songs, but now I think I'll just pick up the hard copy. My favorites are: Something About You, Words, Stop Playin', Lady and Cheatin' Man. David Anthony really has his own sound, which is a good thing; and this album really highlights that. Having an individual sound in R&B is harder and harder to come by these days, and to have that sound with great music is just RARE. So really listen to this, then go buy it, we need to support real artists and real music!

Seemingly inspired in equal measure by Bill Withers and folk-soul cult hero Terry Callier, Atlanta, Georgia's Anthony David (full name: Anthony David Harrington) moved from his original base of Savannah to become further involved in music. Shortly after getting settled, he struck up a friendship with India.Arie and penned a song for her debut, 2001's Acoustic Soul. At one point, he was Arie's manager. After he warmed to the idea of being a performer — rather than just a songwriter — in...
