ReviewShine Wednesday: Pat Anderson

Just a quick update today…

Pat Anderson is a songwriter based in Nashville who has just released his debut album Magnolia Road.  Anderson’s nine original tracks and two covers are brought to life by an extremely talented collection of players including Rob McNelly on guitars, former Jayhawk Jen Gunderman on keys, and Americana Jack-of-all-Trades Will Kimbrough on everything from guitars to bouzoukis.  The result is a solid mix of introspective down beat ballads and melodic up tempo anthems.

On first listen, your ear will likely be drawn to Anderson’s drastic re-imagination of Bruce Springsteen’s “Dancing in the Dark” (I wish I could share it here) as a lazy banjo tune.  Spend some time with the rest of the album, however, and you’ll find plenty to like in his original work as well.
