Isolated Guitar, release date September 23, 2017

Isolated Guitar

This is a collection of rock instrumentals recorded at my home studio, featuring electric guitars, tube amplifiers, and an array of analog guitar effects. The songs are recorded in their early stage of development, and feature mostly guitar, with some additional synthesizer, bass, and percussion. In the style of many popular isolated guitar tracks posted online, these recordings feature stripped down guitar performances, before becoming full-blown power trio performances.

Released digitally everywhere September 23, 2017

Are you a Rush fan? Are you crushed that Rush are done with touring (for now)? We're with you. David Barrett and I want to bring a night of Rush songs PLUS original music inspired by these titans of progressive rock--- to the break the silence over at 'Lee Lifeson Artpark' in Toronto on Wed July 19

If we reach our goal then it's ON.
And if not--then the silence wins!

David Barrett Trio feat. Michael Sadler River Of Gold

River of Gold 

La la la lira la La lira la

You’re on a road under a desert sun
This Valley of Fire calls your name
You watch the lightning come storming in
Cloaked in dark clouds while the spark creates the flame

And this Valley of Fire calls your name

There is no time to confess your sins
You’re turning the page your past set in stone
The patient sand welcomes your healing tears
This River of Gold leads you to the unknown

And this River of Gold leads you to the unknown

Look for the mark that left the pain
It’s where the spark still leads the flame

There is no time to confess your sins
The River of Gold calls your name

David Barrett new album Turquoise

Turquoise is something I've always wanted to do. At 37:24, it's a continuous album exploring variations of a main theme, in the style of a motion picture soundtrack, but there's only an imaginary movie here. Hope you like it.
