Narrowing Down a Set List for a Future "Live in the Studio" Album Project

Updated: Sep 7, 2023

This half of our duo is very much a studio artist. Mark has a great deal of experience playing live, whereas I have hardly any. There has been one "Eric Anders" tour back in early 2004, but it was a flop. I've probably played out enough times (outside of that tour) where you could count it on both hands.

I am currently taking some time off from clinical work, so I have been focusing on music a lot more lately, especially since I can't see the end of this pandemic coming anytime soon. If there weren't a pandemic, I would be tempted to fund a tour, though it would probably be a waste of money since, let's be honest, we are somewhat challenged when it comes to name recognition and following.

I would also like to do a live album one day. My thought is to do a "live in the studio" album so I can avoid taking on too much at one time. If we did do such a project, I'd have to narrow down the setlist considerably. We have close to 100 songs to choose from, and I think we'd need to get it down to ten or so for a "live in the studio" album.

Here is my SoundCloud playlist with too many Anders/O'Bitz songs. Let us know in the comments which ten you think should be on our "live in the studio" setlist. I am going to be updating this playlist as we release more music.

Eric Anders, 1/20/21

Update from September, 2023: I switched out the setlist playlist for my Small World Abide playlist, which is really my first take on a "best of" collection from our duo since my 2016 "best of Eric Anders" collection, Big World Abide.

I would also like to do an Americana "live in the studio" album too. Our "Concord Songs" playlist would be the basis for any future Americana setlist:
