ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Indie folk rock duo Barnaby Bright has garnered high accolades for their lyrically captivating and impeccably balanced songwriting and sound. The ying to each other’s yang, Becky’s angelic voice enchants audiences, while Nathan’s brilliant mastery of multiple instruments and writing styles guides the songs down their path. Finalists in the prestigious New York Song Circle Contest for two years in a row, Barnaby Bright was awarded the Grand Prize, winners in November 2010 for their song, 'Don’t Look Down'.
Between Nathan’s bachelor degree in saxophone performance and jazz composition from Berklee College of Music as well as a Masters of Recording from The Conservatory of the Recording Arts & Sciences in Tempe, Arizona and Becky’s degree in vocal performance, it’s no surprise this Kansas-based married duo wrote and self-produced their first album, 'Wake The Hero.' In the three years since releasing their album they have traveled all over the US, toured Euroe three times promoting 'Wake the Hero' and playing at some of the world's finest music festivals. Their music has been featured on ER, Days of Our Lives, and PBS Roadtrip Nation, and the catchy, melodic 'If I Came Back As a Song' placed third in 2007’s International Song-Writing Competition, whose panel of judges including Tom Waits. Last year Amazon.com chose their follow up EP as one of the top 100 albums of 2011.
A positive, gracious attitude lures audiences from all over the world into a Barnaby Bright performance, captivated not only by the gorgeous melodies they produce but also by the simplistic spirit of two musicians who truly love their art as much as they love each other. Barnaby Bright creates a sacred, magical space for their audiences with unique instrumentation, powerful harmonies, intelligent lyrics, and genuine warmth on stage. Inspired by literature, life, human behavior, and a hint of fantasy, Barnaby Bright is a classic vision of timeless indie folk rock in all its glory.

Wonderful!
I stumbled upon this album, and am completely blown away! I got it two days ago and cannot stop listening to it. I enjoy a lot of music by artists like Iron & Wine and Lisa Hannigan, and find this album to be a great addition to my collection. Favourite songs include 'Yellow Moon' and 'Begging My Weakness', but really I am enjoying the whole album the more I listen to it. Go Barnaby Bright!
