FLEUR’S FIND BY FLEUR MAINVILLE
This week in Fleur’s Find, I have the sheer pleasure of introducing E.B Anderson and The Resolutes.
E.B. Anderson and The Resolutes released their second full-length album, Broken Down Horse, in 2013. SUBMITTED
Not only did I get to listen to their newest release, I also had the honor of providing some matrimonial violin music this past weekend for E.B’s wedding at the Pictou Lodge.
E.B Anderson and The Resolutes is a six-member band, hailing from Trenton, Nova Scotia, but currently working the music scene in Halifax. The band is mainly comprised of long-time friends: E.B. Anderson (vocals, guitars, fiddle, mandolin), Rob Anderson (harmony vocals, guitars), Stephen MacNeil (upright and electric bass) and Derek Thomas (drums and percussion).
In 2013, the band released their second full-length album Broken Down Horse, which was written and produced by E.B Anderson himself.
Broken Down Horse is an album that can be on repeat in the car for days as it requires numerous listens to fully understand and appreciate everything that’s going on during this album. Make sure you keep listening to the CD after Train Rolls On or you’ll miss the hidden track.
E.B Anderson and The Resolutes recently played in New Glasgow for the Pre-Canada Day celebration at the Glasgow Square. They provided the audience with an upbeat, interactive show with music ranging from blues to country and even some rock and roll. They can be seen next July 12 at the Pictou Lobster Carnival, before heading to Sweden in November for a week of gigs.
There is nothing flashy or fancy about Anderson, but the pure passion and loyalty he displays for his songs and fans each show appears to satisfy his supporters and will continue to attract many more to come. For more information on E.B. Anderson, check out his website at www.ebaresolutes.com
