Anderson’s voice and lyrics combined are enough to make your heart swell. The vocal qualities he produces are somewhere between Macy Gray and Bob Dylan (forgive that terribly random pairing), and his lyrics tell simple love stories, trials and successes alike, with grace and candor (”I could write you a novel tonight / I could write you a new song each day / It’s a natural part of my day,” “I know who my sunshine is,” and “There’s always an upside” just three small but effecting examples).
Okay will be appearing at Bottom of the Hill on July 28th.
BLAMMOS’ sound has graced many first-class stages across the country, including Sin-e and The Living Room in New York, The Hideout in Chicago and The Dirty Dog in Austin, as well as numerous Northern California music halls. In October of 2007 they were chosen to take the stage at the CMJ Music Marathon in New York alongside five other acclaimed Bay Area bands at the Talking House Productions SF@CMJ showcase.
