Shifting Sand

By: Laurie Gallardo

Full disclosure: Your humble Austin Music Minute host has been well aware of songwriter Anna Larson‘s skills as a classically-trained pianist (and instructor). But this multi-talented creative mind is fueled by all the gospel, rock ‘n’ roll and many other musical genres she grew up with. And quite frankly, it was invigorating to see many ideas come to fruition through her band, Americana/roots trio The Wheelwrights.

Earlier this year, Larson made her solo debut with the wondrous and introspective Shifting Sand. This is Larson at her most powerful – embracing and inspired by beauty in all its forms, but most especially in dreams, all the magic behind the stories we share…surreal, unsettling, inspiring, wonderful.

You can see Anna Larson at an early show happening tonight at One-2-One Bar, 1509 S. Lamar Blvd. Doors open at 6 p.m. Stay a bit later to catch Cari Hutson and Good Company. Recommended.
