Son Little is a nu-soul innovator from Philadelphia who “doesn’t strive to reproduce his influences; he recombines them into something new.” (NPR) He first gained notice through collaborations with The Roots and electronic producer RJD2, and has gone on to release a debut on roots-rock heavyweight ANTI- Records. Classic soul-inspired riffs are enhanced by a kaleidoscope of electronics, and anchored by Little’s mellifluous (often echo-soaked) voice. Perfect for sipping on an afternoon IPA.
