Anthony Hamilton Southern Comfort
- Words: Derek Beres
- Label: Merovingian
Charlotte, NC native Anthony Hamilton has never had an issue with wearing his influences-Marvin Gaye, Donny Hathaway, Bill Withers-like a badge of honor. Indeed, he is carrying the torch for that Southern, gospel-inflected, blues-derived sound. What his latest lacks in coherence (it's a collection of unreleased tracks spanning years), it more than makes up for in the luster of this troubadour's smoky voice and brilliant songwriting. You can't miss his call-out to Curtis on "Don't Say What You Won't Do," nor will the hook of "Glad U Called" leave your mind anytime soon.
