Must-Have 2011: KASEY ANDERSON

RSL 2011 Music Picks
Best of the First-Half Nominee...

Kasey Anderson has returned with a vengence with Heart of A Dog, his best work to date - every bit as winning as 2010's Nowhere Nights (2010 Album Buyer's Guide Selection) but there's a number of areas in which it tangibly exceeds it's predecessor. The first of these is in Anderson's voice and the second (amongst many) is his music character. Already proven himself to be a strong songwriter, this Portland, OR singer-songwriter sees his personality grow outward to match his abilities on the stage. Possibly the next best songwriter in America. (Mark my words.)

Whether he's whooping it up with macho rock n' roll bravado, collapsing into the arms of a lover or challenging the ghosts of country music's past - we find Anderson standing on top. This sampler below showcases Anderson's uncanny ability to light up the imagination of listeners. That's why Heart of A Dog is already a favorite for Album of the Year at this date.

Anderson is always on the move.
Free Download: Friends can now sample some new covers.
The album project is called, "Textiles on Main Street."
