"Bright White Hide and Logos Review"

On a Tuesday night not many people decide to go out on the town. That is mostly reserved for Fridays, Saturdays, and the occasional Sunday. These people should start thinking about going out on any day that these two bands are playing. It is well worth the time and money to see them play around St. Louis. From synthesizers to heavy rock riffs these two bands put on a show worth more than the $5 I paid.

Grant Barnum started the show off with his new project, Bright White Hide. He’s known for his position as frontman for The Glass Calvary. His new project was very technology based. He used loops, voice changers, and auto tune to drive his new music in a different direction. Barnum interspersed his bright personality throughout his set which had the audience in a light and happy mood. The majority of the set had me feeling very airy and spacey. It was a nice mix of ambient techno sounds that had an astral effect to them. He also added acoustic guitar to give it a more singer/songwriter feel. On one song his lyrics were so fast and well put together that they just flowed with the music. He also incorporated beat boxing with his voice looper. His show was new and different and I loved it.

Logos was also part of the show who blew the crowd away. Their heavy rock influence was made clear with the screeching guitar solos and blasting drum solos. The whole show that they played was outstanding and it seemed like they never missed a note throughout their performance. These guys have no issue getting together and playing a tight show. From watching them it can be seen that they practice all the time and really have a passion for their music.

Both of these bands are completely worth seeing and should not be missed. - The Galaxy Radio


Still working on that hot first release.



Dear Person(s) I'm Trying To Impress,

     First of all, you look awesome today. That look you have goin on, with the hair, and those accessories and/or tattoos? I dig it. Your exuberant aura breathes well into the lungs of the Earth's energy, and we can all feel your spirit's lively vibrations. Kudos. And that smile! Oh my...

     But seriously, Bright White Hide. Meticulously crafted textures you can swallow like fluffy pancakes, performed in tantalizingly inventive ways - all drizzled with the sweet syrup of catchy hook-heavy songwriting. Mmm.

     See, it started as a simple way to travel and play music quickly, away from the slow process of a democratic group dynamic. But what I found was that people responded to my solo shows differently, because of the way they're presented. Maybe they've seen solo musicians perform with loops and effects before, but maybe not without the gimmicks that sort of go along with that. I'm not trying to say 'Hey, look what all I can do,' I'm just performing the songs as if I were a group, with all the passion and energy of a body-saturated stage.

     I juggle several instruments in my act, often simultaneously. Various guitars, a Mikrokorg synthesizer, vocal effects, beatboxing, even spur-of-the-moment sound clips off my cell phone. 

     I've played all over Missouri, and indeed all over the country. 2014 saw "The New Normal" tour, which took me as far out as Denver, all the way to Tampa Bay. Although I've placed the project back in an incubator, I'll be reemerging soon with a new vigor and imagination.

     I hope you like the music, and I hope you're willing to help me shape the musical community into the positive environment that it should be.
