In 2008, Barrett released her debut album, Dying Day, which "Performing Songwriter" magazine declared "a stellar first release." The Noise calls Barrett "a bright light among others of her genre...evident through compelling vocals, ever-changing chord progressions, and spontaneous melodies." With no formal musical education, Barrett has been able to craft unique, unconventional arrangements that highlight her smoky voice. Her band, The Last Date, does a wonderful job bringing her vision to the live stage, offering everything from honky-tonk country rock to ambient, brooding anthems. She credits Neil Young, Radiohead, and Fiona Apple as her main influences.
We haven't seen indie rock darling Jen Trynin for quite some time. That's no wonder as she turned her attention to raising a family and becoming a celebrated author. It is awfully nice to see her come back to music though. While we don;t know much about this project it sure is intriguing to think what she will come up with. You can find out tonight at 9:00!!!
Eric Salt and The Electric City are a Boston rock band with an eclectic sound. Formed from The Abbey Lounge scene in 2005, Eric enlisted brother Denis, bassist Eric Anderson, and guitarist Mike Oram. They recorded the LP "The Hail Mary" with producer Ed Valauskas at famed Q Division Studios. Eric continues to perform solo shows and spends time scoring and producing at Mosquito Studios just outside Boston. In Late 2006 Eric scored the indie movie The Busker (www.thebuskerthemovie.com ) written and directed by Steve Croke. In early 2006 he contributed scoring to critically acclaimed documentary filmmaker David Sutherland's "Country Boys" which debuted on Frontline to rave revues. Eric's music has also been featured in television shows such as "Dawson's Creek" and "Summerland".
