Anthony David's major-label debut, Acey Duecy (released in the U.S. on June 24, 2008) is a good ol' fashioned bluesy Soul album that once again gives credence to the theory that Atlanta is the current home for the most creative R&B and Soul music being made in America today. The album is a treasure trove of strong songwriting, live instrumentation and sparse production which proves that less really can actually be more. The only drawback to the album is that most of it is culled from his two previous, independently-released albums, but if you haven't heard his music yet, this serves as a nice introduction.
