Barak Shpiez


"There was no parade when I came home, a bag of isolation is all I own. Of all these people I used to call friends, there's not a one I'd like to see again."


A Berklee College of Music graduate, Barak Shpiez combines pop writing with performance and recording proficiency. Influences include They Might Be Giants, Ben Folds Five, and The Eels among other indie rock favorites. With wit in his lyrics and melody in his music, Barak is more likely to make you smirk and tap your foot than mosh.
