ANJUS PALE BLUE EYES
Anju’s Pale Blue Eyes is a group that coalesced in San Francisco in early 2011. Based around the confessional singer/ songwriter stylings of Nick Anju, the group currently incorporates a classically trained cello backbone, postpunk and r n’b guitar playing, and the rhythmic pulse of Adirondack banjo. The songs are alternately orchestrated between disparate instruments or flowing into living, breathing jams of dynamic and melodic feeling.
The best Americana songs all have one thing in common: someone has to get shot. Hang Jones front-man, Stephen Grillos took this to heart when writing the songs for their debut album, "The Ballad of Carlsbad County." What began as a collection of bluegrass inspired country-rock songs evolved into a Western Outlaw-themed story album complete with hangings, gunfights, love, sex, and revenge.
