'On This Ride'
"Love this new CD! Gayle's voice is exquisite, as one might expect from past fan-hood experiences, but Bob's lead vocal contributions are also massively good and an unexpected treat on this album. The guitar work is excellent! Very creative, well done and a worthy project well beyond the pale."
~ Dennis Brunnenmeyer, DJ Host of Nevada City Limits, KVMR Radio

Reviews - "Where It All Begins" “I love finding new music by new artists. Before opening this CD I had never heard of Anderson-Gram. This, the duo's second release, is the pick of the latest crop of CDs.
Where It All Begins caught me from track one and I must admit that while some songs are better than others there was not a single piece that I did not like.
Anderson-Gram reminds me on some tracks of Ian and Sylvia Tyson. ‘Alabama’ is a song where the ‘Tyson sound’ is most noticeable. The song is a hymn to that location and love found there. It’s beautifully written and sung with lines like ‘A little smile, a little tear in his eye/A little love song, sung off key.’
‘This Guitar’ is a tribute to the life of the traveling musician with the initial chorus written from directions given on how to find their next gig.
‘Three Chords & a Cloud of Dust’ is a witty look at the other side of the musician's life. It recounts the tale of the performer playing for tips in a bar, competing with the game on the TV in the corner. How many of those are out there? It contains the immortal lines: ‘He even wrote a song in the summer of 69, though it makes no sense and it's too damn long, God only knows what we were on, still I shout it out every time.’
‘One Dying Breed’ poetically tells the sad tale of the demise of the fishing industry.
Other tracks tackle people who do not fit in, sports heroes with feet of clay and fighting the demons of modern life among others.
The only song by another writer is Kate Wolf’s ‘Give Yourself to Love’ and is a real gem. This is a very personal album but deserves a wide listenership.
Where It All Begins is a fabulous album which, with a spark of luck and good airplay, could be where it all begins big time for Anderson-Gram” ~ Nicky Rossiter, Rambles Cultural Arts Magazine
"One sweet CD!" ~ Dick Pleasants, WGBH/WUMB-Boston, MA
"Well, you two are really something! I'm playing the CD (Where It All Begins) I bought last night and I'm heaven-bound. It's wonderful. I keep thinking, this is my favorite song - and then you go and do another one just as good. Did you say you have another CD out? If so, I want to buy a copy of it also. You have a new fan." ~ J. Ford, Stockton, CA
"I think Where It All Begins is a super boffo album. I especially like 'Night Train' (I love the line 'she'll never be an only child, she's just a child all alone') and 'One More Night.' I'm sure Kate Wolf is smiling up above every time she hears your rendition of 'Give Yourself to Love.'" ~Kelson & Susan Slayman~Dataw Island, SC
Reviews - "Watercolors" "We brought back 102 CD's from the Toronto Folk Alliance Convention. We have listened to every one of them completely, and if I could keep only one it would be Watercolors. If this sounds like I am raving then I guess I am. The vocals are WONDERFUL! The guitar is WONDERFUL. The harmonies are quite simply BREATHTAKING as is the entire album. Your songwriting (and this comes from someone who writes) is most appealing. I just can't say enough about this CD." ~Julie Anne Clark, All Music Guide
"A highly recommended home-grown recording." ~Victory Music Review, Seattle, WA
