December 2018
Grover Anderson
7:00 PM to 9:00 PM     Sat, Dec 1, 2018
Venue: Ferry Taproom

Grover Anderson was raised in the historic gold rush town of Murphys, CA. The rich culture of the area (along with lifelong immersion in fiction, theater and 90’s country music) instilled a storytelling nature that is evident in Grover’s writing. He assembled a bar band while attending UC Santa Barbara, put all of the tips from his restaurant job into a jar, and used it to record a pop/rock album. After layovers in LA and Oakland, where he formed the folk duo Freight with Jimbo Scott, Grover and his recently formed family returned to Murphys to reconnect with the small mountain atmosphere that provided such inspiration as a youth. Living in California’s vastly varying environments provided ample material for his next two albums, which Grover self-funded and produced. Moonshine, the opening track on the mostly-acoustic Tourniquet (2011), has grown into a fan favorite since its original recording as a duet with LA artist Sami Freeman. While recording The Optimist (2014), which includes love songs like Little Spoon and Sick of You along with tragic ballads The Lampolier and Grindstone, Grover recruited musician friends from across the state to create a diverse collection of songs, from country, rock, bluegrass, and jazz. His most recent project, From the Pink Room, is a collection of songs that Grover recorded at his home studio deep in the Sierra Nevada foothills, and was named the #2 album of the year by music site Independent Clauses.

Like the wood, water, and stone of the Sierra Nevada Mountains from which they hail" (Strawberry Music Festival).This is not to downplay the bands musicianship--they have been described as "hot shot" pickers and players--but rather to indicate that though lightning fast picking and fiery fiddle licks can wow a crowd, the real purpose of the instrument is to connect with the audience and let them lose themselves for a second in the emotions of the music. As described by The Alternate Root Magazine their "Bright acoustics and note-perfect harmonies give the" The Brothers Strong's music "a huge presence" on the stage allowing them to connect seamlessly with audiences in a meaningful way. These key elements define The Brothers Strong, bringing diverse audiences to their shows.
