His songs are his notebook, exposed with an honesty and fragility that core and tangle into the listeners consciousness. His voice is powered by a delicate vibrato that echoes both sentiment and intent.
Sitting somewhere between the realms of Ben Harper, Glen Hansard, Ryan Adams, and Bon Iver, Barker grasps his influences all the while offering a contemporary approach to the folk/rock genre.
Venturing from solo to collective, Barker plays with his talented friends Peter Dewing on guitar, Pierre Greenway on drums and husky backing vocals, and Julien Zanin on the smooth bass to create a sometimes full, sometimes sparse but perfectly considered and wholesome soundscape.
With extensive shows planned on the release of the single 'Into the Storm' and ‘Traces’ album, Barker and his 4 piece band with the intention of making a significant impression on the Western Australian music scene.
