Our team kicked off a week of great stripped-down sessions in Austin during SXSW with the one and only Aaron Earl Livingston, aka Son Little. Using familiar blues-leaning licks and his remarkable soft and gritty vocals (think along the lines of Stevie Wonder) to sing his tales of love, loss, and life, Son Little has already seen and written so much, having collaborated with the likes of The Roots and RJD2 on various projects. He stopped by the BTRhouse to share some tunes and to chat with Maia.
Featured song: “O Mother”
Special thanks to Southern Tier Brewing Company for sponsoring the BTRhouse sessions.
