Pete Anderson / Bio

Long considered one of the world’s best-of-the-best Tele-twangers, musical pioneer Pete Anderson has never been satisfied with maintaining the status quo. The last 10 years has found Anderson focusing on his solo career - perfecting his craft & honing his musical vision. On "BIRDS ABOVE GUITARLAND" the Detroit native Anderson delivers a set of all-original music -- a rich roots music gumbo of blues/funk/swing/country twang with a splash of surf music and a dash of jazz. And TONE -- always tone...

Pete Anderson is most widely known as the musical partner to Dwight Yoakam, (a little 'side project' that wound up helping to change the face of contemporary country music!) whose records he produced/arranged/and played on from 1986-2003 resulting in sales of 25 Million+ recordings.. Anderson is well known as a pioneer in the roots-rock genre and was an early champion of the Americana movement, where he had a hand in introducing the world to artists such as Lucinda Williams, Jim Lauderdale, Michelle Shocked and Rosie Flores. He is also a renowned bandleader who has appeared on “Saturday Night Live”, “David Letterman” , and “The Tonight Show” (19 times since 1986) and has played over 3,000 live shows in upwards of 15 countries around the world. While Pete Anderson’s work as a producer/arranger/guitarist has resulted in acclaimed records in the Country, Folk, Singer-Songwriter, Rock, Pop, R&B, and Red Dirt genres of music, his focus as a solo artist has always been his first musical love - The Blues.
