Laith Al-Saadi is an artist who typically plays out of Ann Arbor, Michigan. As a guitarist/vocalist he has a wide repetoire playing mostly blues, jazz, lounge, R&B, and rock. Laith enjoyed success as the 2006 Midwest region King of the Blues.
Laith Al-Saadi was one of the four finalists on The Voice season 10. And I have to say it was a joy to listen to him every week come up with another blues song to own.
Make no bones about it once Laith laid his guitar on the song he owned it. His guitar playing is outstanding and he just has that pure blues voice.
The Thrill is Gone
Here’s another track from Laith, a bit more in a mellow mood. This was before he appeared on the voice. A true sample of the amazing talent he has with the guitar.
Laith Al-Saadi- Acoustic Guitar, Lead Vocal
Larry Goldings- B3 Organ
Lee Sklar- Electric Bass
Jim Keltner- Drums
Jimmy Vivino- Acoustic Rhythm Guitar
Will Wheaton, Lamont Van Hook, Billy Valentine, Jason Morales- Background Vocals
Finally today a song I never expected anyone to attempt to cover, this is such an icon. But Laith shows no fear, and he shouldn’t, he just flat out pulled it off.
Next month make sure to get to River Days to see Laith on the main stage in Detroit east downtown RiverWalk.
