What is there to say about Jason Anderson?
This guy is just awesome.
Once playing under the alias Wolf Colonel, Jason Anderson brings a dose of raw guitar and untapped energy to the table. Aside from his knack of making great music, Jason Anderson is a human being that is almost too nice to be a musician. He loves playing music more than anything and his live shows really convey that. At his live shows, he acts like the center of the universe as the
planets crowd circle around him.
And when you’re the sun you don’t need amps or mics to get your point across. Just Jason and the crowd that swallows him up. The crowd sings along, even if they didn’t know the song prior to the set. A circle forms around him as if there was a high school fight and everyone is watching- chanting for who they want to get their ass kicked except they’re chanting for Jason to kick the guitars ass. Anderson is passion filled and wide-eyed as he sings songs about love, happiness, and life. In between songs he’ll interject thoughts of reason, speak on the behalf of civil rights, guided patriotism, and environmentalism. He’ll allude to the mistaken concept of choosing titles, to be left sided or right sided, rather he chose, simply to be.
This guy is a treat to see live – I can guarantee you’ll like him. He’s the sort of guy that will make you smirk on a CD and grin ear-to-ear when you see him in concert. Buy one of his many CD and go watch him play anywhere from coffee shops to libraries. You have a better idea for a venue? Just ask him to play it and he will. Seriously.
I wonder what the coolest/weirdest place to play a show would be?
