City of Vines

"Damn, this is an easy album to get into" - Power of Pop

"...a slice of expertly produced Americana brimming with warmth and some killer hooks.  Think of the folkier early Wilco mixed with radio-friendliness of a Tom Petty -- filtered through Anderson's unique voice and sincere delivery." - Tomorrow's Verse

 "...covers the Americana landscape with joy and a true rustic electricity." - Glide Magazine

"...a country cousin to The National’s sprawling Brooklyn rock." - Radio One Chicago

"...a timeless album for the ages." - JP's Music Blog

"Anderson is a troubadour for a new era. This is an ablum with a big sound, but yet an intimate feel; an album that speaks to musical roots and new possibilities." - Floorshime Zipper Boots
