i’ve been threatening to put out a solo acoustic release for the last couple of years and finally will be doing just that in October. it’s a foot stompin’, banjo pickin’, guitar strummin’ snapshot of what i do when i’m playing on my own.
most of it is first take, “warts and all,” sit down and sing and play kind of stuff. it’s raw and it’s from the heart. it’s Low-Fi Goodness.
“It’s hard to think about what tomorrow’s gonna bring when you’re trying to make it through today.”
Worries may not go away but they are kept beautifully at bay in this banjo powered ditty from Ed Anderson (Backyard Tire Fire, Magic Box, Bloomington Rock School). Hard times demand tunes that will get us through, and Anderson has crafted one of those with this track from his forthcoming solo EP. No real surprise given the Tom Petty level songcraft he’s exhibited in Tire Fire (currently on hiatus) and with new project Magic Box, who just released their debut EP in June. Ed dishes up music that sticks to one’s ribs, meaty stuff to power us for the long haul, and based on this peek at his first official solo release, he’s still cookin’ ‘em up like a pro.
