New Release from Gifted Guitarist!

The second album from this sensational guitaris. Greaseland was nominated to Norwegian Grammy and Kid Andersen is a Norwegian ”blues-refugee” and is performing as a guitarist in harmonica-legend Charlie Musselwhite’s band in the United States. He is also featured on Charlie’s acclaimed release: Delta Hardware.

The album is based on Kid’s life as an itinerant, lonely, exhausted and disillusioned musician and man. The songs are written in various ditches and various brown bars in his own country, Grease Country, and we get a thorough insight into the Kid’s various musical influences and impressions from many years on the road. The album contains his own compositions and reflections, interspersed with a couple of classics that he would have written himself, had they not already been made.

More

Kid Andersen. Enough said?

In search of happiness in the U.S.

Like his good friend and inspiration Vidar Busk did in the late 80s, Kid in the late 90s left for the U.S. to seek his fortune. And after a period in the band of saxophonist Terry Hancke, he ended as the preferred weapon for Charlie Musselwhite.

Personal album

Text-wise, Kid is humorous, somber, accurate and honest, which is reflected clearly in the music. As the title of the album suggests, Kid ‘s newfound experiences have provided the basis for a strong album, with a take to it that is both personal and humorous. The gloomy tinge is a natural part of every true blues man’s reality,as clearly expressed on this release.
