Marisa Anderson channels the history of the guitar and stretches the boundaries of tradition. Her playing is fluidemotional, and masterful, featuring compositions and improvisations that re-imagine the landscape of American music. Her work applies elements of minimalism, electronic music, drone and 20th century classical music to compositions based on blues, jazz, gospel and country music.

The challenge of covering an Elliott Smith song is daunting. When the words are stripped away what is revealed at the core of The White Lady Loves You More is delicate and mysterious. After building it up and tearing it down several times, I arrived at a deconstructive approach, following the vocals as closely as I could, treating my guitar as an acapella voice.
