Bio

Singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Barry Waller started his illustrious music career alternately playing bass in Mazarin, a highly-successful regional cover band, while composing and recording originals. The dual role of cover stylist and introspective songwriter has shaped Barry into an entertainer capable of bringing his unique brand of musical versatility to a wide audience.
Between successful seasons at Long Island’s North Fork wineries, Barry brings his music to European audiences. During his residencies in Copenhagen, Denmark and beyond this seasoned performer engages crowds with familiar favorites, classic rock rarities and originals. In 2007, Barry was hired by legendary guitarist Ritchie Blackmore to be the touring bass/rhythm guitarist in Blackmore’s Night.

With an ever-growing song list, Barry continues to open for national acts and make appearances on popular college and web radio shows. Armed simply with his guitar to provide either sparse accompaniment or powerful chord changes, Barry’s life-seasoned vocals deliver his chosen material in an insightful and crowd-pleasing fashion.
With his return to the States, Barry Waller is now available to play clubs, coffeehouses and events. He is also looking forward to additional international tours.
