The Name Of This Album Is Self-Titled



Anís Hoffman is a 19 year-old singer-songwriter based in Greensboro, NC and Boston, MA. He plays acoustic guitar and harmonica, with the occasional experimental effects thrown in.

Anís was born in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina but his family shortly relocated to Bisho, Ciskei, a homeland country in South Africa during the tail-end of Apartheid. Becoming an increasingly dangerous place to raise a family, his family moved to Greensboro, North Carolina in 1994. Anís began playing piano when he was 7 years old and continued until he was 13, when he first picked up a guitar. Locking himself in his room with his guitar for days on end, he slowly taught himself how to play and began writing songs at the age of 15.

Although he had focused more on electric guitar, Anís began to write songs on his acoustic guitar during his first year of university at Boston University where he met Matt Pezone in a general chemistry lab. The two soon became great friends and started an acoustic folk guitar duo, Owl Jolson Show. Delving deeper into the folk scene, Anís started to write solo material and has developed an eclectic style, ranging from roots music to more unique styles that don’t quite fit into any particular genre. Being a poet, Anís places a great amount of significance on his lyrics, and some of the lyrics to his songs are actually adapted from poems that he has written in the past. He writes songs about love, war, injustice, friendship, and everything in between. Anís released his first album, The Name of This Album is Self-Titled, in 2008 and is currently working on a second album that sounds close to nothing like the first, due for release sometime in 2009. He is also planning an East Coast tour for the Summer of 2009.
