Anthony David Biography
Anthony David is half bluesman, half soul singer, but he was actually raised on hip-hop. After serving with the 82nd Airborne, the Desert Storm veteran picked up the guitar for the first time at age twenty-one, when he landed in Atlanta following his Army stint. At the same time, he met India.Arie, who has become a friend and a musical cohort. After her Acoustic Soul album -- which includes "A Part of My Life," written by David -- went double platinum and garnered seven Grammy nominations, he followed her on tour, released two independent albums of his own, and then became the first artist signed to Arie's new label, Soulbird (under Universal Republic). Acey Duecy, his first album for that label, is scheduled to be released on June 24.
