Kevin Barker

December 7th, 2009


Kevin Barker has been all over. He`s spent the last few years touring and recording with artists like Devandra Banhart, Joanna Newsom, Vetiver, Espers, Antony and the Johnsons, just to name a few. During his college days he was fascinated by John Fahey`s finger style picking and started recording under the name Currituck county. He has recorded few albums as CC. On his latest release ‘You and me’, released by ‘Gnomonsong‘, he has assembled an unbelievably talented group of musicians: Pat Sansone(Wilco), Joanna Newsom, Jonathan Wilson(Elvis Costello), Eric Johnson(Shins, Fruit Bats), and old time collaborator Otto Hauser(Espers, Vetiver) and created a beautiful melancholy romantic contemporary country folk album full of golden harmonies, smooth grooves and awesome guitars . Check this guy out and go buy his beautiful album!
