Son Little – “Alice”


Philadelphia singer/songwriter Aaron Livingston, who previously contributed vocals to albums by The Roots and collaborated with prolific producer RJD2 on the album The Abandoned Lullaby, has now rechristened himself Son Little and released the EP Things I Forgot.

Son Little has a soul singer’s voice, but his musical interests are absolutely all over the place. His style is categorization-proof.

I’ve really gotten obsessed with this track from Things I Forgot called “Alice”. It’s a great example of how much tension and drama a talented artist can draw out of a simple structure and minimal instrumentation.
