“I believe artists create themselves, and that an artist’s work is a byproduct of living an interesting life,” says musician/photographer D. Anson Brody.
The Fort Worth-based singer-songwriter-virtuosic-guitarist has emerged from a painfully complex path involving a near-death experience, loss, and career burnout to triumphantly return creatively reborn and spiritually reinvigorated. He announces his return with a bold self-titled album.
D. Anson’s aesthetic encompasses the dazzling acoustic guitar chops of the Candy Rat Records crew, the intrepid folk explorations of the freak folk scene, and the bold vulnerability and reflectiveness of the singer-songwriter milieu. The organizing factor in his work is serving-the-song artistic sensitivity and capturing emotional authenticity.
D. Anson’s touring history includes extensive routes through the Midwest and Southeast U.S.. He once undertook a tour on foot that spanned over 1,000 miles, from California to Kansas. D. Anson has shared stages with acts as diverse as Guy Forsyth, Monte Montgomery, Tantric, and Days of the New.
