Backyard Tire Fire

Based in Bloomington, IL, Backyard Tire Fire is an alt-country trio led by singer, songwriter, slide guitarist, and former Brother Jed member Ed Anderson. Bassist Matt Anderson (Ed's brother) and drummer Tim Kramp complete the group, whose music draws from folk, country, and blues traditions. The band issued an eponymous album, 2003's Backyard Tire Fire, before partnering with O.I.E. Records for the release of Live at the Georgia Theatre, an energetic concert recording taken from a show on October 23, 2002. Bar Room Semantics followed in 2005, the Skin and Bones EP in 2006, and Vagabonds and Hooligans in 2007. The latter album generated an unprecedented amount of press for the bandmates, who soon found themselves opening for the likes of Jason Isbell and Lynyrd Skynyrd while playing upwards of 200 shows a year. Backyard Tire Fire then returned in 2008 with The Places We Lived, an analog album that mixed guitar-driven rock songs with plaintive piano ballads. ~ Steve Leggett, Rovi

Saw them open for another band in Charlotte, NC. They had just played some NASCAR tracks and were in awe of that scene. These guys would be a great add the the Lynard Skynard or Zac Brown Band cruises. Great live show and cool attitudes.
Caught them at Camp ZOE in MO a few years ago and was impressed. Went there to see Madahoochi. Lost track of BTF until they popped up on another listener's station list which I immediately appropriated . They wont' get away again!
Better them than me! Just kidding, I love these guys. I was in Brother Jed with Ed, and after that was in a band called Shine with Tim—he was all of eighteen at the time. I've known Matt since the Jed days, and consider him to be one hell of a bass player; he is, indeed, one of the coolest guys you'd ever meet.
Matt Anderson was my roommate in college - one of the coolest guys you'd ever meet. I heard he was in some big band now and I accidentally ran across it on Pandora and saw his name. Sir Harles for evah!
i like it, need to check them out as i live about 1 hour from bloomington! !
good things do come out of the music of central illinois. i've known backyard since their beginnings. the music they write gets better and better every year. seeing them at paulies the first few years they were around was awesome.
I almost didn't stay and watch these guys at a show in MPLS because I thought their name sounded dumb. Good move to stay and catch the show - they're fantastic. They groove much harder live than they do on the albums. The albums are great too, but they just sound very different from the live performance. Moreso than with most bands, I feel. Anyway, if you get the chance to see these guys, do it. You will be a better person afterwards.
