Anthony Hamilton: Comin' From Where I'm From
Buy! - (Arista)
Comin' From Where I'm From captures the essence of soul's golden age in the late '60's and early '70's. Rich, gritty and sexy as hell, Hamilton's beautiful smoky and husky voice and equally beautiful songwriting are infused with convincingly wise-beyond-his-years grit and evokes more than a little Bill Withers, Bobby Womack and the like. Hamilton, who is from Charlotte, NC, has humbly been paying his dues for more than a decade, is a proficient writer, singer and producer who can front a band as well. The depth of feeling in his songs is surreal. Hamilton is able to emanate intense pain and suffering through his vocals and lyrics. What makes Anthony Hamilton stand out amongst the crowd? Just listen and you'll hear it as he sings his first chord. 5/15/2004 - Cheryl Waters
