Seth Anderson is a hard-traveling musician with East Coast roots and a passion for adventure.
Blending elements of folk/rock with alternative country and the spirit of punk rock, he is most recognized for his high energy performances, and catchy, truth laden, heart driven lyrics. He’s strongly connected to the community and surroundings of his Rocky Mountain home of the last decade, Canmore, Alberta.
Anderson has joined Joey Cape's (Lagwagon, Me First and the Gimme Gimme's) One Week Records roster based in San Francisco, California to produce his fourth full length effort.
Cape, founder of One Week Records, said Anderson “has an old soul.”
“His songs are beautiful and personal,” he said. “His lyrics are transparent and easily identifiable. His songs will make you move and make you weep.”
Previously independently releasing three full-length albums, he has upwards of 15 years of road experience. The last few years have brought opportunities to tour with with Joey Cape (Lagwagon), Off With Their Heads, Jon Snodgrass (Drag The River), Kj Jansen (Chixdiggit), and Yotam Ben-Horin (Useless ID/ Fat Wreck Chords), which have taken him across Canada, the United States, and Europe connecting with many new audiences and establishing a solid fan base.
In the Winter of 2018, Anderson completed his fifth full length album titled “We Could Be,” where he worked with established Canadian songwriter/author/musician Eamon McGrath. The track listing features many full band songs, along with a handful of simply produced recordings of he and his acoustic guitar, holding onto the essence of his awe-striking live performances. An honest, emotional statement; of loss, hope, and the need for a world that embraces love.
The album is off to a positive start, as the track "My One Disease" has already been picked up by CBC's television series "Kim's Convenience" to be included in an episode in the upcoming season.
Recently, Anderson completed a five-week solo Canadian tour, a European tour featuring dates in France, Germany, Switzerland, and Belgium, as well as a U.S. tour over two months with Yotam Ben Horin (Useless ID, Fat Wreck Chords). Current goals include finding a home for his newest album, and further establishing his presence in the U.S., Canada, an Europe through touring, and the release of new work.
