About Anderson East
The Alabama-born, Nashville-based singer-songwriter’s seductively vintage voice is infused with R&B, gospel, and Southern soul. Maybe We Never Die is East’s first new music since 2018’s breakthrough album, Encore, which featured the Grammy-nominated #1 AAA radio single, “All On My Mind.” Heralded by critics, The New York Times praised Encore as, “…an often lustrous revisiting of raucous Southern soul, rousingly delivered and pinpoint precise. He has a voice full of extremely careful scrape and crunch, but his howls never feel unhinged,” while Rolling Stone declared, “On Encore, East’s influences meld seamlessly, stacking the album with Stax-worthy R&B grooves, gospel-blues ooohs and aaahs, surging keys and blasting brass.” Known for his magnetic live performances, East and his band have performed sold-out shows worldwide and have been featured on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, CBS’ The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and CBS This Morning Saturday, NBC’s TODAY and Late Night with Seth Meyers, PBS’ Austin City Limits and more.
