ANCHORED - Brandan Narrell- Vox Michael Thomas- Lead Guitar Steve D. Wilson- Guitar Greg Betsworth- Bass Mike Smith- Drums

Texas has been known to breed some of the loudest and most hard-hitting bands on the planet...ANCHORED is definitely no exception. Straight out of Dallas, Tx. comes this gang of five who pack as much attitude as their punch with their infectious style of Rock'n'Roll/Hard Rock/Southern Rock/ and even Rap/Hip Hop working with Snoop Dogg and the Dogg Pound/Metal. Blurring the lines between Shinedown, Seether, Velvet Revolver, STP, and Papa Roach these Dallas transplants have brought their own brand of ear candy to the masses and everybody is invited.
ANCHORED formed in the spring of 2009 as a new project by ex- ADVENT singer Brandan Narrell. He built ANCHOREDS' first release, "Listen to This", around his passion for music and his desire to live, eat, and breathe his vision of rock redemption with no apologies or regret's. The release of "Listen to This" in 2010 and through 2014 spurred 3 singles, 3 videos, 6 National tours with such industry heavy weights as Saliva, Black Label Society, Volbeat, a list of festivals, Army, Navy, Air Force, Marine’s basses, 2 Regional tours, Japan, and S.Korea tours from the freshman debut. Also, a 93min. 5.1 Dolby Digital DVD entitled “Good Times….Bad Timing” which features a full live concert in Spokane, WA, tour documentary, The Making of “Last Night”, Last night (2nd single reached #36 on Top 40/Hot AC charts) and the video for the infamous ‘Dirty in Texas” video, which would later be a special re-write for the Dallas Cowboys as “Rowdy in Texas”.
Brandan Narrell decided to add the final key players to the Anchored family. The first call would go to Lead guitarist Michael Thomas, ex- Beautiful Creatures, who had toured and recorded with numerous rock artists and whom they met while Michael was touring with Guns'N"Roses infamous drummer Steven Adler. The second was to veteran bass player Greg Betsworth, to come in and handle the low end duties, next Rhythm Guitar player Steve Wilson of The Black Doves and Mike Smith on the skins.
After feverish writing sessions, the birth of their sophomore record lead them to the world famous NRG Recording Studios. Working with renowned producer Jay Baumgardner (Linkin Park, Korn, Bush) they completed their new album and redefined their signature sound with deadly intent. The process would also garner them the opportunity to collaborate with rap icon Snoop Dogg to create the contagious party anthem "Throwin' Down". Both the band and Snoop shot the video for the track against the dilapidated backdrop of the L.A. basin as a precursor to the release of the new album. In late 2016 Anchored signed
a record deal with Pavement Entertainment. Anchored is extremely excited to work with Pavement and all their new label mates. Narrell said “after a short time in talking with the VP of Pavement I knew that they were the label I wanted to be on.” Now, with the chamber loaded and the finger on the trigger, 2017 and beyond looks to kick off with a bang!
