Anderson East forms new music from old influences, drawing from artists such as Aretha Franklin, Amos Lee and the Rolling Stones. As described in Rolling Stone Magazine, East “can sing the blues with a sultry, countrified growl… Evoking a twangier Ray LaMontagne or Amos Lee with notes of plaintive Ryan Adams, he’s forming a sound all his own.”
