A transplanted Chicago boy from the north side, Barry started playing guitar and writing songs in high school. His major formative influences were the blues and English rock and roll. Chicago blues is brassy and bawdy with a strong beat. Boys’N’Barry’s music can’t be described by one particular genre. Their repertoire includes fast-paced rock n’ roll, blues, adult contemporary ballads, pop, classics, and instrumentals. The lyrics are just as eclectic, describing remarkable, fleeting moments in time as well as the deepest of human desires. The story-teller is rarely in solitude. The scenes include friends and lovers whose presence influences the artist’s perceptions and experiences. Their style is primarily energetic though his selection includes quieter, slower pieces that allow the listener to drift away into the imagery. The lyrics are clever and original; drawn from the artist’s rich vocabulary and his unique form of expression. Many pieces describe common events in fresh new ways such as “Reach For The Stars” and “Connected.” Overall the message is upbeat and full of hope “It’s Never Too Late”, taking the listener back to an era when life was simpler and dreams came true. For after all, life CAN be simpler, and dreams DO come true.
