Eric Anders and Mark O’Bitz – ‘The Loss We’ve Won’
Northern California-based duo Eric Anders and Mark O’Bitz have released the brilliant album ‘The Loss We’ve Won’. It is an Americana release with a lot of heart.
‘One Life’ opens the release to a gorgeously picked acoustic guitar and a soulful vocal performance. It is a gentle but engaging song with wonderful melodies.
‘Family Song’ is a stand-out track which features layered instrumentation and relatable lyrics. It touches the audience’s heart and leaves a lasting mark. In addition, ‘Above Below’ has a compelling string arrangement and memorable melodies.
‘Young Eyes’ fills the sonic spectrum with vivid colour and a genuine vocal performance. Finally, ‘Our Load’ closes the release, and it will have the listener reaching for the repeat button.
Eric Anders and Mark O’Bitz have teamed up with musician Mike Butler to create this magnificent concept album. Together, the team has crafted a body of work that stands out from the crowd. It is a superb collection of songs that work as a whole. So turn down the lights and turn up the volume, ‘The Loss We’ve Won’ is an album you want to take time out of your day to hear.
Eric Anders says about the release, “‘The Loss We’ve Won’ is all we’ve won in life, which then leads to all that is lost in the end–so the loss we’ve won is all that we’ve won and then have to give up in the end. There is no ‘winning’ without ‘losing’ if all of life (and death) is taken into consideration.”
We can not recommend ‘The Loss We’ve Won’ highly enough. It is an intelligently composed and arranged release that will stand the test of time. We can not wait to hear what Eric Anders and Mark O’Bitz will do next!
