Carl "C-Man" Anderson is a vigorous and resourceful musician, innovative producer, adaptable singer, and self-taught drummer extraordinaire. As a youth, C-MAN was one of the founding members of local Go-Go style band, OCCUPATION, and youth gospel group, UNIFIED. He has performed on over 15 recordings with various artists. Throughout his childhood, his budding talents allowed him to proudly travel beside his father, the late Evangelist, KENNNETH FREDERICK ANDERSON, SR., and the gospel quartet sensation the DYNAMIC TRAVELERS of Annapolis, MD (of which his father was a founding member). These experiences would later prove to be the foundation of who we now know to be the “solid drummer with the quick foot,” C-MAN. This journey has taken him all over the nation. Some of his gospel credits include: THE MIGHTY CLOUDS OF JOY, THE SOULSTERS, THE NIGHTINGALES and REGI McCLURKIN & PRAISE AGENDA. From the age of 5, Carl dreamed of positively influencing great multitudes through his music. As a young African-American male growing up in Annapolis, he faced many dangerous and damaging issues within his own community. But his love of God and music ignited a passion for helping others faced with adverse challenges. Carl's enormous faith in God and a true gift of insight enabled him to overcome obstacles that young African-American males often face when trying to fulfill their dreams and goals. God has granted Carl a great diligence and tenacity in staying focused; he is true to this calling in an ever changing society. His focus specifically rests on educating people of available resources and fostering healing and health, be it Physical, Mental, Social or Financial. Carl has had a continual and significant presence in the music industry - touring, performing and recording nationally since 1989. He has earned a solid reputation as one of the most acclaimed, consistent and professional percussionists available today. He has captivated many audiences with his “concrete pocket” groove for over 20 years. His music promotes harmony, peace & love and has a soulful sound. His current musical creation is the gospel group, CONNECTED; composed of some of the most gifted and accomplished musicians from the Mid-Atlantic region. Together they display great musicianship, skill and motivation. They love what they do and it shows.
