Marisa Anderson

Marisa Anderson channels the history of the guitar and stretches the boundaries of tradition. Her deeply original work applies elements of minimalism, electronic music, drone and 20th century classical music to compositions based on blues, jazz and gospel and country music, re-imagining the landscape of American music. In 2011, she released her first solo guitar record, The Golden Hour, followed by Mercury (2013) and Into the Light (2016), which was named one of the best records of 2016 by Billboard magazine. She is in demand as a touring artist throughout Europe and North America, as well as collaborator and composer with other artists.
