Hey! It’s Barry here, you remember me, right?? I look a bit like Derren Brown (so I’m told) and I sing a bit and play guitar… I hope all is good, I know it’s been a while since I last updated my site, I have been locked away recording my album and doing some wonderful gigs.
My album is coming along nicely and I can’t wait to share it with you when it is finished, I have 11 new songs that I am working on, putting the finishing touches to now.
I am hoping to release the album in the summer, all being well, so keep your eyes open and your ears alert for an update regarding the release date.
I recently bought a cool instrument called a Guitalele, it’s a ukelele but with 6 strings. I have been working out which songs sound cool on it and found one that I really liked and decided to film it for you all to see. It’s my version of the Travis song ‘Flowers In The Window’

Much love, Barry x
Last Thursday I played an outdoor show at the Open Culture Bandstand on Williamson Square in Liverpool. It was absolutely freezing and it took me a fair few songs to get my fingers working due to the cold, but it was a really fun gig and I had the pleasure of playing to a fantastic crowd of people who were out doing their Christmas shopping and enjoying the continental Christmas village.
I’d like to say a big thanks to everyone who came out to see me play and braved the freezing conditions, it was a really fun show.
Some photos from the Bandstand gig taken by Adrian Wharton are below…

I have been working hard since my last web blog update, I’ve been gigging on Mathew Street in Liverpool to some really fun and energetic audiences and I’ve also been locked away in the studio working on my album.
I can’t wait to share with you my new songs, the recording sessions are going really well and the songs are sounding great.
I have some brilliant musicians playing on my upcoming album…
I have Bryn Williams playing bass, Ste Williams playing lead guitar, Adriano Arena playing lead guitar and a few more awesome musicians to be confirmed as I get closer to the album being completed. I have posted a video below with some footage filmed during the recording sessions and a little preview of one of my new songs… Hit the play button below to watch…
