What I do

Create

I write songs for group and solo performance. I also enjoy composing for video, radio and games. Get in touch if you want to work on something together - I'm always open to new ideas!

Perform

I play a range of styles on piano and guitar, with or without vocals. Every venue is different, so it's important to gauge the audience and set the right tone. Drop me an email if you have a free slot - I love playing new places!

Collaborate

From festivals to film music, birthdays to Bowie nights, music takes me all over the country and always keeps me busy. I play in various groups, and even played in an adaptation of 'A Midsummer Night's Dream'. Get in touch if you have an idea you want to share.

Produce

I've been making my own recordings for a good few years now. I can provide high-quality, low-cost sound and production for singer-songwriters, bands and videos. Email me and we can sketch out a plan.

Teach

I provide lessons for guitar, piano and voice, as well as composition for pop, rock and experimental music. I keep things fun and stimulating, and I don't bite. So just let me know how I can help.

kind words

“Fresh from a Glastonbury appearance, expect dark tales of love, loss and casual vampirism set to tunes that the Devil wants back. Influenced by the likes of Bowie, Talking Heads, Nick Cave, and with the storytelling gifts of Tom Waits, this is a band that plays it like they mean it.”

Chris

Chris Palmer, Editor, The Crammer

A Lyrical Genius with a voice that can take you back in time in a heartbeat or propel you into the future in an instant. Simply magical.

Ronnie

Ronnie Swift Laurie, Marland Music

“Barney (solo or band) never fails to give a riveting, can’t-take-your-eyes-off-him performance that will have you wondering what goes on in his head and how he sends it to his fingertips and voice and gets them to do his bidding. The set is full of firstly…familiarity, and secondly..quite shocking surprises, all delivered with a stunning accomplishment of musicianship and vocal trickery. A consummate performer indeed!”
