“Anderson has the chops and spark to make a real statement his own way. Hot stuff.” – Chris 

Spector, Midwest Record

Billboard and radio charting, award winning, Blues/Roots guitarist and singer, Barrett Anderson, 

has a career going back to the late ‘90s. This Boston-based musician tours nationally and 

internationally, and has played over a thousand shows in some of the largest – and also smallest 

– clubs, theaters, festivals and venues - solo, with his band, or supporting other legendary 

musicians (Ronnie Earl, Monster Mike Welch, Anthony Geraci, David Maxwell, Billy Price, T-

Model Ford, Pinetop Perkins, “Steady Rollin” Bob Margolin, Johnny Rawls, and John Primer to 

name a few).

As a teenager, Barrett joined and spent three years with Ronnie Earl and The Broadcasters, and 

then another three years with the Monster Mike Welch Band. Barrett has released 3 full length 

solo albums, including 2020’s live album HypnoBoogie, which spent 3 weeks in the top 15 

Billboard Blues Album charts (peaking at #6) and numerous radio charts. He has been 

nominated for multiple Boston Music Awards, winning the 2013 Blues Artist of the Year award. 

In addition to fronting his own band, Barrett is the guitarist for Anthony Geraci & The Boston 

Blues All-Stars, Band of the Year nominee at The Blues Foundation’s 2023 Blues Music Awards. 

The Barrett Anderson Band is rounded out by the mightiest of rhythm sections: Paul Loranger (Eric Sardinas, Candye Kane, Popa Chubby, Paul Nelson) on the upright bass and Per Hanson (Ronnie Earl & The Broadcasters, James Cotton) on the drums.

“There is plenty to appreciate here, from slide-driven blues to full-on rock and roll, taking in some jam band and North Mississippi influences…” – John Mitchell, Crossroads Blues Society, Illinois
