Anders Parker is a first-generation Swedish American. He was born circa 1970 and grew up in Upstate New York, in the Hudson Valley, in a musical family. His father lived in Vermont. In the 1990s Anders moved briefly to Portland, Oregon. He spent some time in North Carolina where he lived with Matt Brown, founder of Bladen County Records. Brown recalled: “I lived with Anders for a while. We odd coupled. I’d drink tequila and rant, he’d drink whiskey and smolder. We both got jobs at a little bar called the Stingray. He’s a Northerner and a big guy with a dark presence who likes to drink alone. If a Southerner (like myself) drinks alone, it means he’s probably going to fight. I imagined Anders had all the fight he could handle inside of himself; I’d heard right from his first album Man of Sin
. I could tell he cared, and that it confounded him.” He then moved back up north with his one-eyed dog Oly. He lived for some time in New York City. In 2008 he moved to Burlington, Vermont, where he lived with his wife as of 2014. In 2016 he had been living in the town of Alert, Nunavut in the Canadian Arctic - the northernmost permanently inhabited place in the world, located 508 miles from the North Pole.
