Aloe Blacc - All Love Everything LP
All Love Everything is platinum-selling artist Aloe Blacc's first album since his 2013 Grammy-nominated major label debut, Lift Your Spirit. It was created through the lens of Aloe as a family man and is also the singer-songwriter's first collection of material written as a father, a journey that's expanded his already heartfelt artistic palette. Says Aloe about All Love Everything: "Rather than a genre, my music is about A.I.M.: affirmation, inspiration, and motivation. After so many opportunities to talk about my music and not feel comfortable saying, ‘I'm a pop artist' or ‘I'm a folk artist,' I had this realization. My songwriting genre is thematic."
Throughout All Love Everything, Aloe exhibits the radical empathy and emotional directness that has helped firmly establish his global stardom. Whether it's the stand-out closer "Harvard" – a heartrending storytelling song in the tradition of Joni Mitchell and Bill Withers that finds Blacc singing with disarming candor about a woman working two jobs to support her family, including a child with special needs – or the candid and percussive devotion ode "Corner," Aloe's songwriting remains as affecting as ever.
Working with producers Jonas Jeberg, Jugglerz, Jon Levine, and Matt Prime, Blacc has crafted his most open-hearted album to date. Drawing on an eclectic mix of soul, folk, and contemporary pop, All Love Everything proves that there's no pigeonholing the human experience.
