Barnaby Bright / Liz Longley

Event Date: 
Wednesday, November 14, 2012 - 8:00pm

 

Brooklyn-based indie-folk rock duo Barnaby Bright has garnered high accolades for its lyrically captivating and impeccably balanced songwriting and sound. Two-time finalists in the prestigious New York Song Circle Contest, Barnaby Bright was awarded the Grand Prize in 2010 for its song, “Don’t Look Down.” The duo self-produced its first album, Wake The Hero, garnering recognition as an “emerging artist” at the legendary Falcon Ridge Folk Festival in 2010, and was one of only four artists voted to return in 2011 as a featured performer. Their music has been featured on ER, Days of Our Lives, and Roadtrip Nation, and the catchy, melodic, “If I came Back As A Song” placed third in 2007’s International Song Writing Competition. The group has toured all over the U.S. and Europe, dazzling fans with unique instrumentation, powerful harmonies, intelligent lyrics, and genuine warmth on stage. Inspired by literature, life, human behavior, and a hint of fantasy, Barnaby Bright is a classic vision of timeless indie-folk rock in all its glory.

 

In the short time since her graduation from Berklee, singer-songwriter Liz Longley has assembled an impressive resume. While best known for her stop-you-in-your-tracks voice, Longley has steadily developed a reputation as an accomplished songwriter, crafting intimately personal portraits through her music. In the past two years, Longley has taken home top prizes at some of the most prestigious songwriting competitions in the country, including the BMI John Lennon Songwriting Scholarship Competition, the International Acoustic Music Awards and the Rocky Mountain Folk Fest Songwriting Competition. The Washington Post declared that Longley is “destined for a larger audience” and DigBoston called her “a rising acoustic sensation.” Even John Mayer is a fan, calling her music “gorgeous, simply gorgeous.”
