Aldrich is the lil baby project of singer-songwriter, Caleb Anderson. Combining vulnerable, tender vocal and guitar performances with a host of eclectic instrumentation bowing to a heavy backbeat, Aldrich’s music is characterized by a wide-eyed playfulness. Based in Minneapolis, MN, Anderson calls on the talents of Hank Donato, Destin Modina, Matthew Tessier, and Reese Kling to make one pretty cute band!
