Classically trained and practically educated, Anson Stiles brings more to the table than your average bassist. Possessing a natural ear, and a knack for the physical aspects of playing, he comes to every show with the energy of a steam locomotive. Whether it’s singing or playing, Anson cherishes musical interactions with his band mates and the crowd. Make sure you check out the number of other musical endeavors he is involved in, including the original jam band FAKAUI and progressive folk band Electric Tie Dye, where he plays bass and open back banjo, respectively. Anson also has a great solo act that is picking up steam in its own right. Steeped in classic forms such as blues, country, and Jazz, he is an enigma to categorize.
