Barrett Brooks

Barrett Brooks plays a unique brand of fingerstyle guitar heavily influenced by the country and piedmont blues players of days past. Quiet and observant by nature, Brooks' aphoristic songwriting style cuts straight to the feelings of ennui, bewilderment, acceptance, and hope that fill the days and nights of any who've lived on the spinning sphere long enough. His raw, lonesome delivery hearkens back to the hand-in-heart soul balladeers of the 60s and the haunting tenors of Appalachia. [+]
