GET READY FOR HYPNO BOOGIE

GET READY FOR HYPNO BOOGIE

Fronted by a Boston-based blues singer/guitarist, the award-winning Barrett Anderson Band packs a mesmerizing, backbeat-heavy, hypno boogie punch.  The Barrett Anderson Band has learned from, and played with, the very best in the music world and provides a unique voice, one equally informed by classic blues, soul, and rock & roll.

Winner, Boston Music Awards, 2013 Blues Artist of the Year

"He may have shared the stage with great bluesmen, but when fronting his own band and playing his own music he is his own man."
-Georgetown Fats, editor, Boston Blues Society

"He's just a wizard on the guitar."
-Ronnie Earl, interviewed by Brian Owens, Metronome Magazine

"Barrett Anderson's roots explorations are full of true to the heart playing."
-Ted Drozdowski, music critic, Rolling Stone Magazine

Barrett Anderson knows the roots of the blues -- he has recorded songs by Muddy Waters and Son House -- but he's never afraid to split off and do his own thing. He's very much a modern songwriter of the blues, incorporating the energy of the J. Geils Band at times and singing and writing with a rhythmic flair propelled by his outstanding guitar playing. He can pick in the subdued, lyrical style of Ronnie Earl, or burn with the dynamics of a true rocker. His album, "The Long Fall," is a first-rate statement and helped earn him a Boston Music Award for best blues artist of the year.”

— STEVE MORSE, former staff critic for the Boston Globe for 28 years who now teaches Rock History at Berklee College of Music
