ABOUT

JB BRIDGE is the stage name/musical persona of JB Anderton. Formerly from the metro-east Illinois/St. Louis area, JB moved to Chicago in the fall of 2005 to share his life with his soulmate and to perform his music. Back in St. Louis, he was a co-founder and bass player of Yarn, a guitar driven, power-pop band that had moderate success in the local music scene. JB's personal musical tendencies, however, lean more towards a singer/songwriter, piano-based sound with a bit of classic and progressive rock. He is currently working with guitarist James Lorang and is seeking other musicians to complete the band line-up.
