Anders Beck
Anders Beck plays the dobro... or the resophonic guitar as some call it... or the "drop steel" as he calls it. In his relatively short time playing the instrument, Anders has built a reputation for being a unique, creative player that fits into any musical situation with a sound that is strong yet sweet; dirty yet somehow clean. To quote a recent Jambase article, "Anders Beck's moaning dobro got me where it hurts AND heals.".

Anders was a founding member of what may turn out to be one of the most notable farm teams in bluegrass, Broke Mountain. His playing and songwriting helped shoot the band quickly into the spotlight when they won the 2003 Rockygrass Band Contest only two months after forming the band. When the band members decided to pursue other outlets for their music in 2005, Anders was recruited by friend and songwriter extraordinaire, Benny "Burle" Galloway of Yonder Mountain String Band fame, to help create a band to showcase the man's phenomenal songs. The resulting band, The Wayword Sons (uniquely consisting of acoustic guitar, dobro, piano and bass) made one critically acclaimed album, toured coast to coast and played many of the country's major festivals.

In 2008, Anders officially joined Greensky Bluegrass as a result of many late night jam sessions and a clear musical chemistry that could not be denied. He views the band as a sort of culmination of his previous projects in that it involves killer bluegrass pickin' and stellar songwriting. His playing fits incredibly well into the bands melodic soundscape and seems as if it was always there.

While other collaborations are too many to list, Anders has notably played in solo projects with Vince Herman (Leftover Salmon) and Jeff Austin (YMSB), has played sets with The Drew Emmit Band and The Emmitt Nershi Band (Leftover Salmon and String Cheese Incident) and is often asked to sit in with bands ranging from Railroad Earth to New Monsoon.

Aside from music, Anders likes to backcountry ski in deep, deep powder and is currently starting to write his first novel.
