Born to a preacher and a teacher in Los Angeles, Little first came to international prominence with his self-titled debut, released in 2015 on ANTI- Records. While Little’s collaborations with The Roots and RJD2 had already helped him make a name for himself by that point in his adopted hometown of Philadelphia, critics on both sides of the pond were quick to recognize the unique power of Little’s solo recordings.
Son Little, the bluesy R&B project of Grammy-winning Los Angeles artist Aaron Livingston, has shared his third album aloha. It’s his first album with an outside producer, and Livingston plays almost all the instruments on the album. aloha follows 2017’s New Magic and 2015’s Son Little. —Lizzie Manno
