Kasey Anderson & The Honkies hit the road supporting Counting Crows this summer


KASEY ANDERSON & THE HONKIES HIT THE ROAD WITH COUNTING CROWS, FOLLOWING COUNTING CROWS COVERING KASEY ANDERSON ON THEIR LATEST RELEASE, UNDERWATER SUNSHINE (OR WHAT WE DID ON OUR SUMMER VACATION)

This summer, Kasey Anderson & The Honkies will be hitting the road supporting Counting Crows.  The Crows recently covered Kasey Anderson on their latest release, Underwater Sunshine (Or What We Did on Our Summer Vacation) via Collective Sounds.  They chose to cover Anderson’s “Like Teenage Gravity,” from his 2010 release Nowhere Nights (Red River Records).
Of the song, Counting Crows’ front man Adam Duritz wrote in the album’s liner notes:
“Ryan Spaulding raved about Kasey Anderson so I bought all the records and I really dug them.  I really found out how right Ryan was a few months later when Kasey came down to Austin last year to play Smoke & Sand, Ryan’s Smashing Life (RSLblog.com) & Tyrannosaurus Record’s 2011 SxSW showcase.  His big lonely rock songs are addictive but he crushed at Smoke & Sand with an acoustic set.  Maybe that’s why I chose ‘Like Teenage Gravity’ to cover over songs like ‘I Was A Photograph’ or ‘Exit Ghost.’  I don’t know.  I love his recording.  It has a sparse almost hymn-like simplicity.”
The Honkies are comprised of Kasey Anderson (vocals, guitar, percussion), Andrew KcKeag (guitar, vocals), Eric Corson (bass), Ty Bailie (keys), and Mike Musburger (drums).  Thus, Kasey Anderson & The Honkies bring a wealth of a “who’s who” of Northwest rock to their latest release, Heart of a Dog. McKeag has spent time in Presidents of the United States of America and The Long Winters, Corson in The Long Winters and, of course, Musburger from The Fastbacks, Young Fresh Fellows, The Posies, The Supersuckers, and countless other cult Seattle power-pop and indie-rock bands.
