Eminent guitarist Marisa Anderson has announced her new album Still, Here, out on September 23rd, 2022. Still, Here follows Anderson’s recent acclaimed collaborations The Quickening with drummer Jim White (The Dirty Three) and Lost Futures with guitarist William Tyler. Along with the album announcement, Anderson has shared the single “Waking,” an achingly beautiful nylon string acoustic guitar piece which showcases Anderson’s immediate and sheer elemental capacity to speak through her instrument.

Marisa Anderson’s lucid, eloquent approach to guitar music and composition has established her as an unparalleled artist and an insightful, coveted collaborator. Anderson’s work draws on a mosaic of folk musics and lives in conversation with myriad musical traditions. Her music is inviting and candid, beckoning the listener into sprawling ecosystems and intimate corners alike, from barren landscapes to verdant thickets, impassioned communal experiences to pensive reclusions. As a master of her instrument, Anderson translates abstractions into undeniably moving music, tracing through traditional folk tunes, imagined Sci-Fi films, and foggy sanctuaries of sound. Still, Here is Anderson at her most direct, laying bare her practice of processing and understanding the world through music and distilling that practice into pieces as expressive as they are transfixing.

Marisa Anderson will be touring throughout the US, UK and Europe in support of the album, including dates with William Tyler and a festivals including Greenman, Alter, Meakusma, and Clonakilty International Guitar Festival.
