Born and raised in Austin, TX- Jimi Hendrix showed Barney Cockburn what guitar was late one night as he viewed Channel 15, formerly “Austin Music Network,” our Public Access alt-MTV at the time. This helped Barney truly discover his passion for music that he never has (or will) give up on. A tectonic shift then occurred upon his discovery of Dimebag Darrell. He went from a blues player to… whatever he is now. Come see him cross endless genres, playing along to his self-composed originals with BEAUTIFUL, ETHEREAL and MAJESTIC synths, other MYSTIC, STRANGE and EFFUSIVE sounds, a few covers that are more interpretations than “covers,” and a self-jam sesh, where he loops and jams with himself… playing drums, guitar, bass, vox and keys. Except more musicianship that you know what to do with, LOTS of guitar (from country to blues to rock to metal and beyond), some interesting takes on pop/rock classics and SEVERAL surprises!
