 Lexington, Virginia, USA

Rich acoustic guitar and atmospheric lap steel form Michael's instrumental, genre melding live performance. Layering percussion , and whatever is within arms reach , Michael constructs an entertaining, dynamic original repertoire from ballads to electrifying blues to infectious deep grooves.


Michael's debut - On The Road To North Mountain.
An instrumental odyssey that defies simple description. Organic
acoustic guitar and atmospheric lap steel make up the core of this
remarkable album. Progressive Ears amply stated, "Very rarely does
something knock me off my feet like this disc from Virginia guitarist
Michael Barry-Rec. This is music that needs to be heard and
experienced." 2008 brought the release of Streams In The Desert.
A carefully crafted album revealing a maturing artist. Showing
outstanding potential for film this disc was awarded "Acoustic Film
Score of the Year" at the 2008 Los Angeles Music Awards. His most
current full length effort, Continuum, once
again exposes an artist refusing to be confined by external influences. Featuring special
guest contributions from George Winston on lead single Sanctum and bassist JD
Foster who has toured with Emmylou Harris, Patty Griffin, and Dwight Yoakam. 
Exhibiting a very tasteful blend of acoustic and electric
instrumentation Michael continues to invite his listeners on often lush, harmonic
excursions thick with melodic sensibilities.
