Son Little Album New Magic Out Today

The New York Times described Son Little’s singing as "a voice so careworn it’s almost otherworldly” while Culturefly called the Grammy Winning singer-songwriter and producer, “an Otis Redding for the 21st Century.” 

Son Little’s anticipated full length album New Magic arrives in stores today.

Listen to his new single “O Me O My” via Consequence of Sound

Each of the tracks on New Magic’s draw from the diaspora of American blues and soul that includes not only modern R&B, but also rock & roll and hip-hop and transforms them into a singular sound that is propelled by his mesmerizing and soulful vocals and production that artfully balances between rustic immediacy and hip hop cut-and-paste.  

Son Little first came to the public’s attention through his collaborations with The Roots and RJD2, and has since toured with artists as diverse as Mumford & Sons, and Kelis, Shakey Graves and Leon Bridges.  In addition he won a Grammy for his work producing Mavis Staples. 

Praise for New Magic:

"Listeners who want to hear a smart and passionate musician take R&B into new, thoughtful places owe it to themselves to give New Magic a careful listen." - All Music Guide

“Swoonworthy” - No Depression

 “Son Little is a genre-spanning virtuoso and a singular talent” - Mass Appeal

"Son Little does for the blues what Sharon Jones did for soul music. Like Jones, he can make old sounds like new by animating them with his own distinct and necessarily contemporary voice." Paste
