Son Little Is About To Get Big
Philly’s Son Little is the new musical project from Aaron Livingston. He’s collaborated with The Roots and RJD2, and his song “The River” was one of our recent Gotta Hear Songs of The Week. John Vettese called it “a barn-burning bootstomp jam, an utterly catchy song that’s a little bit electronic, a little bit soul, a little bit blues.”
