Lower Alabama: The Loxley Sessions
Bloomington, IL
(Royal Potato Family)

With a vocal timbre as husky as a cornfield, along with sharply crafted songs, Anderson’s latest release is by far his boldest. Produced by Anderson’s neighbor, multi-instrumentalist and former sideman to Neil Young, Anthony Crawford, the record captures an organic and timeless aspect of Southern twang that is both sly in production and postmarked by Crawford’s legendary approach.

This nine-song release is founded on melodious acoustic guitars and heart-wrenching lyricism while radiant backup vocals, pedal steel and fiddles decorate the tracks with trill warmth. Blending classic country mantras of righting wrongs and mortality, Lower Alabama is a refreshing but humbly executed twist on solid songwriting and Southern heartbreak.
