Andy Barham plays songs that sound like Folk, but have a thing about them that is distinct and hauntingly familiar. Echoing the start Willie Nelson had, Barham creates from the center and weaves a feel and imagery that stands out in spite of itself.

Biography

In the fall of 2010, Andy Barham set out to record an album joined by bassist Mark Williams to complete the instrumentation on the record. Vocalist Julia Ward came in to sing on a couple of the tracks. The recording is a 9 song album titled, "Roadrunner Deceived" and is Andy's first official release. The record hits on folk and delta blues that hit on the start/stop nature of living.

Andy Barham released the recording in August of 2011 in Austin, TX.

Most recently, "Desert Moon" came out and was recorded in Louisville, TN with Engineer/Producer Keven Ratterman at LaLa Land

BAND:

Andy Barham

Raised in San Antonio, TX moved to Louisiana at age 9 and shortly thereafter began to play guitar and rehash Zeppelin and Jethro Tull albums as best as his fingers would allow. With long hours in practice, he learned to recreate what he obsessed over: the glory of rock 'n roll hoping his future would feel the same. Growing up, North Carolina played host to Barham as a high school student attending an all boys school outside Asheville. Barham got his start playing for crowds at summer camp, much like M. Ward. Original songs started to surface. In the fall of 2007 Andy moved down to Austin, TX from North Carolina where he continues his life, and still likes to write songs.
