A little bit about myself:
I am an award winning musician whose genre wears many different hats. As a songwriter who spins stories about morality and love, the music carries a Folk Americana/Roots feel. My sound is akin to writers like John Prine, J.J. Cale, Jackson Browne and Lyle Lovett to name a few. I am originally from New Jersey & went a long time without pursuing music, doing mostly fine art on the west coast. My writing started again in 2008 and I have released 2 CD’s, “Barrie Dempsey” and “Line In The Sand”.

It’s in the details:
I have a large library of cover songs and original music. We can do a mix of both or only originals. Most gigs are 1-4 hours and we can offer a solo up to trio act depending on needs. We do have sound equipment if required. Shannon handles most of the bookings, coordination with the venue and promotions. If you are in a bind, we do play on short notice. 24 hours for me as a solo and 48 hours for up to a trio. However 1-2 weeks advance notice would be best. If you would like references we can accommodate. Some examples of entertainment events have been: Festivals, wineries, house concerts, weddings, corporate and private events.
