Continuing an impressive streak of attracting neo-soul talent, Little Rock gets another potentially rising star on Friday. Anthony David
from Atlanta, comes to town co-signed by India-Arie, whose Soulbird
imprint (distributed by Universal Republic) released his “Acey Deucy”
last year. Ironically, it was David who encouraged his longtime friend
Arie to get started performing professionally and even bankrolled some
of her early sessions with his rent money. Karma seems to be coming
round. David was nominated for a Grammy this year for the single “A
Part of My Life.” His “Bill Withers meets Mos Def” sound, as Arie has
described it, should bring out the crowds in droves. Particularly since
it's also a joint birthday party for local trumpet standout Rodney Block
and One Stone
front man Christopher Bowen
, who'll also perform.
