Country music is always transitioning and changing and the fluidity of it all allows genres to mesh and to come together to create something magical. That is exactly what you will find on Anderson East‘s second full-length LP, titled Encore, available everywhere today.
Dripping with soul, tenderness and plenty of angsty horns, each song combines rock, blues, country, jazz, and Americana so you soon forget which genre box he should be in and start appreciating the rising star’s undeniable talent.
Encore features insanely talented co-writers such as country megastar Chris Stapleton (“King For A Day,” “If You Keep Leaving Me”), pop sensation Ed Sheeran, and Snow Patrol’s Johnny McDaid (“All On My Mind”) The first single off of the project, “All On My Mind” has garnered over two million streams on Spotify.
East knows when to wail and knows when to quietly express his sentiment, giving the entire album and irrefutable cohesiveness. Encore also features two covers, including Willie Nelson’s “Somebody Pick Up My Pieces” and Ted Hawkins’ “Sorry You’re Sick”. East adds his own spin on each of the songs, making them sound brand new.
East was on the road with Stapleton’s “All American Road Show” tour, building his fan base and introducing his signature sound to the Stapelton fans. Listen to the full album below and be sure to follow along on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter.
