D.C. Anderson is a Matson and Bistro Award winning Singer/Songwriter/producer with 9 CD’s currently available on the LML Music label. Also an actor, he appeared in the Broadway and touring production of THE PHANTOM OF THE OPERA, touring productions of MARTIN GUERRE, THE LIFE AND ADVENTURES OF NICHOLAS NICKLEBY and PIPPIN, and THE BALLAD OF LITTLE JO at Steppenwolf, MARTIN GUERRE at the Guthrie, THREE POSTCARDS at Chicago’s Northlight Theater and three roles in THE LARAMIE PROJECT: EPILOGUE at the Repertory Theater of St. Louis. Television appearances include made for TV motion pictures, the short-lived ABC series LADY BLUE and numerous commercials.
D.C’s performing career actually began “on the road” – in the back of the family station wagon where he and his sisters would repeat, from memory, the entire score of THE MUSIC MAN. He often made “personal appearances” – singing the hits of Petula Clark and Gary Lewis and the Playboys while upstairs changing into his PJ’s. The entire family would gather outside his door to listen, anxiously waiting for him to emerge so they could ask him, “Are you all right?”
Undeterred, D.C. studied voice and theatre at Ohio’s Baldwin Wallace College and did graduate work in directing at North Dakota State University.
D.C.,or David as he was known at the time, left NDSU to study dance with the BILL EVANS DANCE COMPANY in Seattle, Washington with hopes of becoming a modern dancer…resulting in the ability to add ‘moves well’ to his theatrical resume.
Early concert appearances included being a third of the vocal trio ON THE SLY with Hollis Resnik and Susan Hart in Chicago, and a half of the duo Paul King and David Cameron in Seattle.
He began songwriting in 1995 – mostly as a lyricist. His collaborators include Roy Zimmerman, Geoff Packard, Steven Landau, Stephen Randoy, Lem Jay Ignacio, Albert Hague, Adryan Russ, Elizabeth Doyle, Jeff Rizzo, Rick Snyder, Ritt Henn, Carol Hall. A few of his songs have placed in some of those ‘Mountain Valley River High Sequoia Sky Woodlands by the Bay’ songwriting contests….
His 9 solo CD’s are 1993’s TIME WAS, 1997’s THE BOX UNDER THE BED, 2000’s BLUE SUMMER DAY, 2001’s ALL IS CALM…, 2002’s COLLECTED, 2004’s BALLAD, 2006’s I AM STILL, 2008’s OUR STORY and 2009’s CLOSE COMPANIONS.
