Still working on that hot first release.



When talking about Barfield, the Tyrant, everything starts with Barfield, the man.

Mike Barfield, the southern gentleman of Texas soul, is one of the most exciting frontmen on any scene today.  Sixty four years old and straight out of a long  tradition of gulf coast entertainers, Barfield is a must see live show.. Imagine James Brown meets Johnny Cash fronting a very Texas version of the Clash. 

With the release of their latest singles, Barfield and musical partner Johnny Moeller(Fabulous Thunderbirds) blend all kinds of rootsy goodness in their own way.  With a long running, standing room only residency at Austin's famed Continental Club, they have honed a most exciting mix of blues, soul and rock and roll.
