With the completion of his second release issued through Porch Glow Records, Anthony Neff continues to build upon his reputation as a songwriter and performer of considerable depth. Chase Your Burden, much like its predecessor Generation X-istential Blues, is built upon a solid framework of warm tones, intelligent lyrics and lasting melodies. Touches of Americana, rock, folk and pop music are interspersed throughout Anthony's songs - yet he manages to avoid easy categorization into any one of these labels.

Attempting to capture an intimate feel on this mostly acoustic release, Anthony recorded Chase Your Burden on an analog reel-to-reel tape machine in the living room of Raleigh, NC producer Rob Farris (who produced Anthony's previous release along with releases from Kenny Roby and The Countdown Quartet). Recording the songs on ½" tape (before it was discontinued) was an important objective for Rob and Anthony, as they are both fans of the warm sound that tape recording delivers. The result of these sessions is an intimate recording that places the listener in the same room - complete with creaks in the floor and the sounds of sleet hitting the window on some tracks.

Chase Your Burden is sure to build upon the initial success of Generation X-istential Blues, which was released in late 2002. Its title track will be featured in the April 2005 Shut Eye Records compilation The United States of Americana, Volume 2. With songs that have been described as "half Band and half Little Feat", Generation X-istential Blues was praised by critics and fans alike:

"5 Stars...a trek through the world of Americana music...from roots-blues to country-rock and folk. The songs are well crafted...Anthony Neff is a songwriter himself that deserves recognition, as he can hold his own with any songwriter today, and even with some of the greats of the past." - Rikk Matheson,

"Mixes Americana, folk, country, rock and the blues into the fold and accomplishes more than a Little Feat." -

"This CD is so much fun. Anthony's voice is powerful and emotive...the listener cannot help but be drawn in." - Mark Duncan,

"A solid collection of songs...friendly to the ears." - Rick Cornell, Independent Weekly
"3.5 Stars...genuine and often clever choice of lyrics. The production quality...imparts a warmth and coziness that perfectly suits the songs. You feel like Anthony's singing the song just for you." - South of

"Begins with lots of promise and never lets up...Gritty, gutsy rocking with smooth vocals and infectious backbeats...I love the twists and turns of tempo and style on this album...oughtta be a classic." - Mike Plumbley, Ragamuffin Radio

Anthony will be performing solo acoustic shows throughout 2005, and plans on playing several shows with former 6 String Drag guitarist Scotty Miller (who plays electric guitar and banjo on Chase Your Burden). Anthony is engaged in pre-production work with Kenny Roby on the next "full band" record, which will be recorded in late 2005.
