"In 1972, Bill Withers wrote a song about the Vietnam War," Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Anthony David intones over a stark drumbeat in his personalized and timely interpretation of "I Can't Write Left-Handed," Withers' haunting meditation on military and combat. David's connection to Withers is multi-faceted. Like the iconic singer/songwriter, David began his musical career after serving in the military; indeed he saw combat in Desert Storm. From the onset of his career, Anthony, a longtime collaborator with India.Irie, has often been compared to Bill Withers.  Like Withers, David plays the acoustic guitar and has a warm, resonant voice that imparts an earthy sincerity to his music. So it is no surprise that David has often been labeled as his generation's Bill Withers. Now, Anthony David has made the album that so many have been urging him to make for years; a heartfelt tribute to Bill Withers.
"In many ways Bill Withers is the artist most influential to my music career," confides Anthony David. "When I started, I considered myself more of a writer than a singer and for the subject matter and instrumentation on my first project, people would always point and mention his name on terms of my sound.."

Anthony David

Anthony David was born Anthony Harrington in Savannah, Georgia. A Gulf War vet, he began writing songs during a stint in the military in Iraq, where as a paratrooper with the 82nd Airborne he took part in 28 combat missions. Writing songs was a life- affirming act while facing the real possibility of dying. He got involved in the music scene in Atlanta in the late 1990s, meeting a then-unknown singer-songwriter India.Arie; they became friends and collaborators, with Anthony co-writing songs on her first three albums, which spawned a number of Grammy nominations, singing back-up for her on tour and eventually opening for her. This visibility led to the release of Anthony's debut album Three Chords & The Truthreleased in 2004 on the Atlanta independent Brash Records, carving out a unique lane with his personalized brand of acoustic soul. Extensive touring revealed Anthony to be a free-wheeling, engaging performer, able to hold a crowd with just the sound of his voice and an acoustic guitar. A second independent album, The Red Clay Chronicles, led to a deal with Universal Records, which released Acey Duecy, a compilation of the best tracks from his first two albums, yielding a hitduet with India.Arie and a Grammy nomination.Thanks to the release of his albums by labels in the UK and Japan, Anthonytoured extensively abroad, building aninternational audience. His star continued to rise as he signed a dealwith Purpose Records/eOne Entertainment whichled to the release of his fourth album As Above, So Below in 2011, whichfeatured guest vocalists Algebra, Phone ofLittle Brother and Shawn Stockman of Boyz II Men; his duet with Algebra,"4Evermore," became a #1 hit at adult urban radiowhile the reggae/Latin-tinged "Body Language" tore up dance floors in theUK. A tour in Kenya inspired Anthony tobecome part of the Give Africa Hope campaign that brought awareness tofamine in East Africa. He shot the video forthe title track of the album in Kenya. He also became involved with AWOL (All Walks of Life), an arts program for children in his hometown of Savannah, pushing to establish it in Atlanta in 2013. He quickly followed the release of As Above, So Below with Love Out Loud, another album on Purpose/eOne. Signing with Shanachie Entertainment in 2015, he released The PowerFUL Now. Followed up by the critically acclaimed “Hello Like Before”, also released on Shanachie in 2018.
