Carl Anderson

Carl Anderson has quickly become a staple at Virginia festivals, logging two appearances each at Campout East and The Festy Experience plus Bristol Rhythm and Roots Reunion, Misty Mountain Music Fest and Crozet Music Festival. 2012 has been a year of touring for Carl, sharing stages with Cracker, Southern Culture on the Skids, Sons of Bill, and Jonny Corndawg. He was selected as a finalist for Telluride Bluegrass Festival’s Telluride Troubadour songwriting contest and recently recorded a Daytrotter session.

Although still relatively young, Carl has been writing and recording music for years and his songs speak of emotion unknown to the average twentysomething. Carl played for years with his group Pine Radio and recorded and toured extensively with various other artists in Charlottesville and beyond. His song “Heavy” was recorded by Nashville singer Andrew Combs.

Today, Carl Anderson focuses on his solo career. Having solidified a powerful backing band, Carl is putting his effort toward the follow-up to Wolftown. On his next record, Carl looks to build on what he has started and hopes that funding will be less suspenseful in the future.
