Northern Californian singer-songwriter Eric Anders and southern Californian guitarist-composer Mark O'Bitz have been working together since before Eric's 2003 debut release, Not At One, which, like most of Eric's seven solo releases from 2003-2017, is mostly made up of Anders/O'Bitz songs.

 

The two started releasing music as the Anders/O'Bitz duo in 2018 with Of All These Things.  Their 2020 album, American Bardo, was their first time working with producer Mike Butler and was listed in Popmatters' top Americana albums for 2020.  All of their releases since have been produced by Mike Butler of San Diego.

 

Eric and Mark are proud to have worked with Basque video artist Joseba Elorza (Greenday) on their award-winning 2021 music video, "Searise."   Also check out their latest releases below: Answers Belie (2023), The Unencumbered Ones (2024), and Contrapasso (2024).

 

See the playlists below or go to "Hear the Music" to hear Eric and Mark's music over the last two decades.

 

Small World Abide is a collection of the best A/O songs since Eric and Mark have been releasing music as a duo,

 

Concord Songs is a collection of their best Americana songs, Morton's Pillory Plea is a collection of their many political songs, On Narcissism is a playlist of some of their psychological songs, and Big World Abide is a collection of some of Eric's best songs from his solo releases (most of them Anders/O'Bitz songs).

You can also find a complete discography (with lyrics!) on Bandcamp.

"I may have stumbled upon two hidden gems of Americana music. Mark O’Bitz and Eric Anders are two diamonds waiting to be discovered, and it's about time they get to shine their rays for the world to admire. Geniuses at work, the two have been making music for over two decades now and don’t plan on stopping for anything before becoming a global sensation."

- Saiid Zeidan, Medium.com 

"Eric Anders is an obscure, independent singer-songwriter whose unaffected ability to turn a phrase and otherworldly knack for arranging transcendent, melancholy melodies would have made him a superstar, you know, if records still sold based on talent."

     - Gail Worley, Worley Gig
