About Gloria Anderson:
Gloria Anderson is an Americana /Country singer-songwriter from Luling, a small Texas town. As a military brat with parents who would quiz her on rock bands like Fleetwood Mac or play classic Country like Dolly Parton, she wrote songs about her window observations during six family moves before seventh grade. She began playing her music at open mics and paid gigs around the San Antonio area, including New Braunfels, Spring Branch, and Luckenbach at age seventeen.
Gloria’s talents have been on full display in the Lone Star State, as she became the first rising Texas songwriter to completely sell out the Hill Top Cafe in Fredericksburg, played original music twice on 92.3 The Ranch FM, and toured across Texas with Cole Ritter and the Night Owls this past summer.
Her sphere of musical influence even spans to the Midwest, as that tour reached Ohio and she performed at the 2022 Illinois State Fair Grand Central stage. Gloria’s newest hometown, however, is Nashville, Tennessee, where she has studied the craft of songwriting at Belmont University on her way to receiving Warner Chappell’s 2022-2023 Songwriting Internship and winning Belmont’s 2022 ASCAP Songwriters Showcase. Gloria’s debut single, “Yours,” has reached over 185,000 cumulative streams across all platforms.
Her songs have been featured on an assortment of playlists: Spotify’s New Music Nashville and Fresh Finds: Country, Apple Music’s Don’t Mess With Texas and BMI’s Texas Ten. Gloria’s music combines her humble Texas roots with a bit of Nashville country flair to create a genuine, yet unique, Americana sound, and her relatable lyrics and sweet persona work together to create her image as an empowering girl next door who always has a story to tell.
