Payin' Dues: Son Little
Erstwhile collaborator with The Roots breaks out on his own
"I hear places in my songs,” says Aaron Livingston, aka Son Little. But what we as listeners are most likely to hear on this well-travelled, LA-born Philadelphian’s self-titled debut album are not places but emotions – this is soul music without the generic straitjacket that term usually implies. Instead, Son Little places emphasis on unbridled feeling. “I just want to get my shit out,” he tells The Blues.
