Jay Cobb Anderson Band
Jay Cobb Anderson Band
5 years ago, with only a $100 to his name and no place to stay, Jay Cobb Anderson packed his bags, grabbed his guitars and left the small pond of Idaho for the waters of Portland, Oregon. It was here that he became a founding member of the groups Fruition, the Bellyboys and Rose City Thorns (formerly known as the Villains). These groups would go on to pack local venues, successfully tour west of the Mississippi, and release fan adored albums. As a prominent songwriter for all three bands, Anderson has woven his musical stylings from the “along the riverbed” folk tunes to the heartland Americana ballads to the loud, grimy rock and roll ragers.

Even with the assortment of musical outlets Jay Cobb had at his disposal, he still managed to write 100 plus songs that did not fit with the sounds of his other groups. After 2.5 years of whittling these 100 songs, the best 12 were selected to create Anderson’s first solo album, “I’m a Rambler, I’m a Fool.” The album is a showcase of the artist’s versatility and ability. From the honest admissions in the title track, to the loving sacrifice and struggle of the working man in “Revelation”, to the ode to fallen friends and growth in “That’s Enough”, Anderson showcases his technical ability as a musician and singer as well as his human vulnerability, faults, philosophies and desires.

They may look like your average country band, but TK and his crew specialize in a sound they've dubbed "Psychedelic Doom Boogie," so be prepared, if you can prepare for such a thing.
Tommy Alexander
Alexander’s voice is full of passion, with tangible emotion and a depth of experience to share. Fans of both indie and pop music will enjoy the variety in instrumental sounds and the carefully constructed lyrics.

“The downright truth about Alexander is that he is an expression of rebellion in a society that is trapped within institutional conformities and down-the-road retirement plans. Filled with an introspective and strikingly truthful style of songwriting, his music can be downright mind-bending -- especially for those of us who have grown used to Pandora's corporate jukebox and the cultural clichés that run with it.”

In the recent past Tommy has been fortunate to share the stage with acts such as; Mac Demarco, Michael McDonald, Big Thief, Willy Tea Taylor, Aaron Lee Tasjan, SUSTO, Twain & Jay Cobb Anderson.
