Feeling a bit camera shy


Kevin Barber was born and raised in the heat and fog of the 'Big Valley' of central California and moved along to live and play in Los Angeles; New York, Nashville, Portland and San Francisco.  His sound is a clean, finger picking, hillbilly jazz style that is melodic, delicate and lively.

Based on the west coast, Kevin is currently recording at Big Timbre Studio with Jason Robbins whose production and engineering credits include Buck Owens, Dwight Yoakam and Michelle Shocked’s track “Oh Susanna,” on the 2004 Grammy Award winning album, “Beautiful Dreamer.”

His music has been played on KROQ FM in Los Angeles and college stations nation wide, used in radio commercials and independent films, has appeared with national acts Fishbone, Tammy Diddley (Bo’s daughter) and swapped stories with Elvis Presley guitarists, Scotty Moore and James Burton.

Other highlights include recording at the legendary Sun Studio in Memphis, TN, appearances and headlines at various McMenamins in Oregon; The Coconut Teaser on the Sunset Strip, Spaceland in Hollywood, CA, on Nashville’s Broadway, the Oregon Convention Center and enjoyed residencies at the Maryhill Winery in Goldendale, WA and MacTarnahan’s Taproom in Portland, OR.

A 6-year student of recording artist and The Little Willies guitarist, Jim Campilongo, he continues to search out and find the right note for the right time.

Kevin is available as a solo atmosphere set, trio, band with vocals or as an added hand to an existing project and can travel nation wide.  Click the ‘audio’ button for samples and be on the look out for his first solo record (sample of new music coming soon) scheduled for early 2007.
