Barry Winslow began his singing career in 1965 at the age of seventeen with the band The Royal Guardsmen. Their hit song "Snoopy vs. the Red Baron" won them a gold record and "Snoopy's Christmas" went platinum. These were mega hits and took the group all over the country. The band was together from 1965 to 1970. They played with great bands like, Sam the Sham, Tommy James and the Shondell's, Lobo, The Beach Boys, The Who, and others. They regrouped in 1975 to do the club circuit, and Barry left the band in 1978.
In 1985 Barry began to get seriously involved in his songwriting and became acquainted with Aaron Brown in Nashville. He submitted several songs for Aaron's new children's project. The "I L.O.V.E. Y.O.U." cut, performed by Christian artist Tonya Goodman Sykes, was selected for the "Child's Gift of Lullaby's" project. The song is enjoying much success and earned a platinum record award for Barry.
Barry really enjoyed songwriting but he knew there was more he wanted. Something was missing. In 1992 he found fulfillment when he gave his life to the Lord and, with God's inspiration, he began writing and singing songs of praise. His first effort "Transition" met with great enthusiasm, fueling his passion for Christian music. In 1997 he moved to Missouri where he has continued dedicating his life to praising Jesus in his walk and in his music.
He is truly a gifted vessel. Above the talent though, Barry treasures the anointing God has placed upon him. That anointing comes through as he ministers unto the Lord the songs God birthed into his spirit.
