All Music Guide:

With his world-weary voice and gritty, narrative-driven songs, Kasey Anderson has drawn comparisons to Americana and alt-country artists like Steve Earle, Tom Waits, Nebraska-era Bruce Springsteen, and Ryan Adams. Bouncing between the folk scenes of Bellingham, WA, and Portland, OR, Anderson has become a regional favorite and has attracted some national press attention for his five albums, 2001's Harold St. Blues, 2004's Dead Roses, 2007's The Reckoning, 2009's Way Out West, and 2010's Nowhere Nights, all of which were produced by Eric Ambel and recorded at Ambel's Cowboy Technical Sources studio in Brooklyn, NY.

Federal wire fraud indictment[edit]

On January 28, 2013, Kasey Anderson was indicted in the United States District Court for the Western District of Washington on five counts of wire fraud. Among the charges in the indictment are the allegations that Kasey Anderson engaged in scheme to defraud investors by falsely informing investors he intended to produce a benefit album and host a benefit concert in support of the West Memphis Three. The indictment also alleged Kasey falsified emails from Jon Landau, Bruce Springsteen's manager, as part of the effort to defraud the investors. On 21 August 2013, Anderson pleaded guilty to the federal wire fraud charges.

On July 24, 2014 KCPQ/Q13 FOX, Seattle-Tacoma News Broadcaster was reporting that Anderson, 33, of Vancouver, Wash., the frontman and guitarist for the alt-country group Kasey Anderson and the Honkies, pleaded guilty in August 2013 to defrauding investors who believed they were investing in legitimate albums and concerts, including projects featuring major recording artists and celebrities.

U.S. District Judge Ronald B. Leighton ordered Anderson to pay $594,636 in restitution and said, “The offense is a serious one. You let down a lot of people.”

Anderson also sought investors for his own album and tours, and the record of another musician. As part of the solicitation for the compilation album, Anderson represented that a portion of the proceeds from the record would support the legal defense fund for the “West Memphis Three,” three men convicted of murder in Arkansas in 1994, who had garnered significant attention and support from people who believed in their innocence.

Anderson claimed to have agreements signed by various music stars and a family member of one of the West Memphis Three. No such agreements existed, U.S. Attorney Jenny Durkan said.

In all, Anderson took in more than $590,000 from more than 30 investors.
