New album!

Vacancy at NASA

'Vacancy at NASA' is about the constant battle between enjoying things you’ve worked so hard for and remembering what you’ve had to go through to get there. It’s a beautiful heartbreaking adventure. The album is a blend of Barnes’ raw, heartfelt lyrics, and poetic verses combined with effortless guitar melodies and the rich, cinematic Cello arrangements. Recorded with producer Sam Winfield (Amber Run, Fickle Friends).
