Chrissie Hynde, “Wow! I saw Carleen Anderson perform at the Barbican in London Saturday night”
Chrissie Hynde: “Wow! I saw Carleen Anderson perform at the Barbican in London Saturday night and still reeling in shock and ecstasy. She and her band restored my faith in music. Her band reminded me of Tim Buckley’s vibes infused propensity.

“Good music RULES.
