ERIC ANDERS & MARK O'BITZ
Singer-songwriter Eric Anders and his longtime collaborator, guitarist-composer Mark O'Bitz, will soon present their third album as a duo, American Bardo. This will be their third album in three years. Their 2019 release was Ghost To Ancestors. In 2018 they released their debut album as a duo, Of All These Things.
"The music is laid back, richly woven, contemplative, and inviting. The vocals are hushed, gentle, whisperstrong.... This, friends, is what that whole singer/songwriter movement is all about: one man with a vision, a unique voice, solid instrumentation, and words that can—and will—open your eyes.
"With a voice that combines James Taylor's grounded poignancy with Jeff Buckley's complex ethereality, west coast singer/songwriter Eric Anders creates gorgeous, wistful 'Sunday Morning' music unlike that of any other contemporary artist."

This might have been what it was like when people heard Simon & Garfunkel for the first time.

Matterbloomlight is an amazing track. With lyrics as true and honest, Anders and O’Bitz remind me of the way an acoustic guitar can fill your soul to the brim.
- Erica Garcia, Audible Addixion
Eric Anders and Mark O’Bitz’s album, Of All These Things, is something truly special. Melodically, lyrically, and generally stunning... an outstanding piece of work.
