Walla Walla, WA
ROBIN BARRETT is a legacy artist, and with well over a million plays/downloads on his old MP3.com page, an artist with a huge fan base. Listening to Robin's music is an experience! Since the death of SRV, Blues has had a hard time commercially. Johnny Lang and Kenny Wayne Shepard both failed to deliver the high original standards that their forefathers in the genre brought to the attention of the callused and jaded pop music masses. Robin Barrett, who was playing before those boys could hold a guitar upright, brings an age old style right up to the twenty-first century with bravado and skill.
"You play some exciting guitar in a Blues Rock style"
Bruce Iglauer-Alligator Records
"This is the biz - snearing guitars - 'make the bi*** squeal' harmonics - crashing, no messin' groove - subliminal, sinister vocals - hell, this track made the hairs stand up on the back of my neck and that's the truth - Roj Agogo
