Pete AndersonPete Anderson is a multi-platinum, Grammy-winning record producer and groundbreaking guitarist who melds blues and country to forge a style all his own. Known as a pioneer in roots rock and an early champion of Americana, he had a hand in introducing the world to such artists as Lucinda Williams, Jim Lauderdale, Rosie Flores, and, perhaps most famously, his musical partner of 20 years, Dwight Yoakam. Pete is also a renowned bandleader who has played over 3,000 live shows in upwards of 15 countries around the world and appeared on Saturday Night Live, Late Night with David Letterman, and The Tonight Show, as well as releasing five critically acclaimed solo albums on his own label, Little Dog Records, with a new one in the pipeline.

The website allmusic calls him “one of country music’s most innovative and influential guitarists.” Roughstock says that he’s “someone whose name belongs with Clapton, Hendrix, Harrison, and Stevie Ray Vaughan,” and adds, “never pass up a chance to sit in a darkened room and watch Pete Anderson play guitar.” “They used to call us working class,” Pete sings on one of his biting originals, “we’re just not working anymore.” The good news is that he’s still working, and the result is a hard-driving fusion of country and blues that’ll have you rocking out till long after the lights come up.

Pete's current band consists of Keyboard player Michael Murphy (Billy Vera and The Beaters, Joe Walsh, Seals and Croft and Chuck E. Weiss) and drummer Jeff Sorenson (LA Session player and teacher).
