James McMurtry is a master songwriter who paints stories with his brilliant, poignant and occasionally biting lyrics. Backyard Tire Fire, who emerged from a fertile Midwest music scene that's introduced America to some of its greatest new rock bands over the last decade, fully embrace the best characteristics of their generation's genre-bending, influence-melding approach to creating music. The band features Ed Anderson (vocals, acoustic and electric guitars, keyboards, percussion), Matt Anderson (bass, vocals, percussion) and Tim Kramp (drums, percussion, vocals).
