The Loss We’ve Won is Eric Anders and Mark O’Bitz’s Album | E.A.Poets

Take a moment to listen to this magnificent sound product it is worth it!

The music proposed by this duo manages to awaken distant emotions, hidden in our souls. It makes us find faded memories, like when we open a drawer and find yellowed Polaroids inside.

We look at those photos with nostalgia and joy. This is what these songs make you feel… nostalgia and joy.

Loss We’ve Won intimacy is thrilling. The guitar with its solos and arpeggios caresses your heart. The magnificent vocal interpretation speaks directly to your heart.

The musical chemistry that Eric Anders and Mark O’Bitz have managed to create is enviable. Their music carries tradition with it. I thought of the pioneers playing similar songs around the fire to distract themselves from the hardships of life.

We can find those dreams and adventures in the melodies of these beautiful songs.

A fantastic discovery that I recommend to everyone.

The Loss We’ve Won is Eric Anders and Mark O’Bitz’s Album | E.A.Poets

Northern Californian singer-songwriter Eric Anders and southern Californian guitarist-composer Mark O’Bitz have been working on music together since before Eric’s 2003 debut release, Not At One, which, like most of Eric’s seven solo releases, was mostly made up of Anders/O’Bitz songs.

The guys started releasing music as a duo in 2018 with Of All These Things. They followed that up with Ghosts to Ancestors in 2019. Their 2020 album, American Bardo, was their first time working with producer Mike Butler and was listed in Popmatters’ top Americana albums for 2020.

​Eric and Mark are proud to have also worked with Basque artist Joseba Elorza (Greenday) on their 2021 music video, “Searise.” American Bardo, “Searise,” and all of Eric and Mark’s “music in the time of coronavirus” releases in 2020 and 2021 were produced by Mike Butler of San Diego. You can read more about Mike and Joseba below.

​Eric and Mark finished their “music in the time of coronavirus” collection in late 2021: three albums and one single all done remotely during the pandemic.

​Mike, Mark, and Eric finished a 9-song Americana project in 2022: The Loss We’ve Won. This album was done in a more straightforward Americana style inspired by the work Mike did on “Careful Now My Son.” For more on The Loss We’ve Won, see Eric’s blog post, “The Loss We’ve Won.”

To hear a “best of” collection of Eric and Mark’s Americana from 2003-2022, see their Concord Songs playlist. See their Small World Abide for a “best of” playlist of the duo’s music from 2017-2022.

​Eric and Mike are also working on a blues-rock EP, So Far Gone. They are hoping to release that in the summer of 2022.
