Anderson East learned to sing and play guitar at 11 years old. He is the grandson of a southern Baptist preacher, while his mother played piano in the church. After spending much of his time touring and engineering records, he was discovered by Dave Cobb at Nashville's Bluebird Café. His debut album on Low Country Sound / Elektra, entitled 'Delilah,' was released on July 10th, 2015. Before the release East started touring nationally in January 2015 as direct support for Sturgill Simpson. In addition to his own sold-out headline shows, he has toured with Brandi Carlile, The Lone Bellow, Jason Isbell, and John Butler Trio.

"Satisfy Me" was the first single released off the record. It instantly went top 10 viral on Spotify and received regular radio airplay. NPR music called 'Delilah' an "eclectic, fully formed debut album." Daytrotter wrote, "It's one of those 10-song records that's damned near perfect, traveling through the old, smoky bars of older days and down the twisted back roads of love." On July 15th, 2015 East made his television debut on "Late Night with Seth Meyers," and also appeared on "CBS This Morning Saturday" in support of his album.Brent CobbLinksIf the love of music can follow a bloodline then you could say that writer & recording artist Brent Cobb was born to be a musician. In fact, so many members of Brent's extended family have musical ability that he can't really name them all. Music was not only in his blood, it was played and heard in his home as a child and in the homes of most of his relatives throughout his youth.

Prior to his time in Los Angeles, Brent had fronted regional band, Mile Marker 5, in Georgia, occasionally opening shows for Capitol Records recording artist and fellow Georgian Luke Bryan. Bryan took an interest in Brent and generously made a handful of Nashville based introductions, which led him to Carnival Music where he's been writing ever since. His affiliation with Carnival Music precipitated a move to (a much more manageable city) Nashville, and he has since penned songs for several major label projects, including Kellie Pickler, The Eli Young Band, and Luke Bryan.
