As I told Kasey Anderson last night, seeing him live has been a bucket list item for me. Mutual friends have raved for years about his live show, praising his emotional delivery of poignant lyrics and hilarious stage banter. So when he announced a show just north of Los Angeles at Standing Sun Wines in Buellton, Calif., I had to drive up and see what the fuss was all about.
That fuss is well-warranted. When he sings, the room falls silent, as his storyteller voice draws you in and lyrics of heartache, infatuation, hope and disappointment wrap around your heart. Kasey has always been a man of many words, all of them more beautiful than the last.
His on-stage banter with the crowd also reveals a much lighter, funnier side to Kasey than some of his heavier songs would imply. He's an entertainer in every sense of the word, engaging the crowd with dry humor and a coy smile.
Kasey Anderson's comeback might be quiet but it is mighty. We can't wait to see what he does next. Check out Kasey's music here.
