"Dallas Observer"

"Far from the typical shortcomings of your garden-variety "technical" players, Brody hasn't neglected the importance of depth in his music. As a singer, he reaches pretty far down inside, and does it with the uncanny ability to play complex guitar parts at the same time." - Alan Ayo


"Blair Anderson"

"He played the guitar like a man possessed with purpose"
- Blair Anderson, The Preface - The Preface

Bio

Classically trained on the upright bass since he was 10 years old, Anson's passionate and emotive performances have been touching hearts and dropping jaws all across the country. D. Anson has opened for acts ranging from hard rock groups Tantric and Framing Hanley to instrumental jazz sensation Rhett Butler, including all manner of emerging independent songwriters in between.

Explaining how it all got started, he says, "I was selling guitars at a music shop. I showed a customer an acoustic guitar but I played it slap pop style like a bass. The customer dug it, but one of the other employees pulled me aside and said, ‘You can't play guitar like that!’, which was the WRONG thing to say to me! I started practicing and honing my technique right there in that shop until my boss loaned me his Gibson J150 to practice on. I tuned it to C and started wailing, a little too hard maybe. When I gave the guitar back it was probably more superglue than wood".

Focused on songwriting, Anson believes that his amazing technique is a means to an end, and not an end in itself. His passionate and emotive performances and powerful vocals are often noted as his main draw by fans. He says "People like flashy technique, but ultimately they want to connect. Music is a language. It's communication."
