CBB

The Chris Barker Band is truly a family affair. Patriarch, manager and guitar player Clifford Flett has passed on his life long love of playing guitar and music to his sons and nephews who comprise the band. Formed 4 years ago out of household jam sessions, the players are Chris Flett lead guitar, Clifton Flett, lead vocals, guitar, front man and primary song writer, Curtis Flett drums and vocals and Waylon Lafreniere bass and vocals. In case you thought you missed something, the band line up is slightly confusing. There are 4 Fletts in the band, 2 of them Cliffs, one a Chris. However there is no Chris Barker in the band. The band name is a combination of Clifford's son, guitarist Chris and his grandmother Lizzie Barker chosen as a tribute to her support and inspiration, which remains influential to this day. The CBB break out a rock tempo guaranteed to get everyone on their feet jiving. All the while never straying far from the smooth country rock feel and the arrangements stick to their guitar based instrumentation. Guitarist Chris Flett really lets his fingers loose and rocks out with a tasty Jimmy Page inspired solo on "Rock and Roll Getaway" and Lead singer Clifton Flett gets his spotlight on lead guitar with his own Jimmy inspired solo on "If I Had a Dollar". Lead singer Clifton Flett's voice has a pleasant, understated country twang with just enough range and unfussy emotion to serve the lyrics intent. As principal song writer, his topics cover familiar territory for country rock; life on the road, guitars, lost youth, relationships and missing home. To Clfton's writing credit there is none of the over the top sentimentality, emotionalism, angst or patriotism popular with American country artists. Clifton's self reliant attitude is perfectly summed up in "The County Side" where he admonishes "get that tear outta your beer right now." The CBB has learned a lot about taking their influences in country and rock and coming up with a style of their own. That they love to play clearly comes across in their CD Six String Highway which smartly positions itself to be enjoyed by a broad audience. The Chris Barker Band will get you up on your feet and get you dancing all night long! -Gary Zubeck - GrassRoots News

Checking out "One More Time." Another Great Track. If you get a chance, please check out two of our songs, "Take It All Off" and "Valentine's Day." We're looking for covers up North???? Paul.

TELL EVERY ONE ABOUT IMRadio -- Got to thinking. What if each of us independent musicians told our family, friends, fans and acquaintances about IMRadio.com, how besides the main station, it has stations for each of the states individually, 52 countries, and just about every musical genre -- reaching any internet connection around the world. We could tell them in person, on the internet or at small or large venues. Anyone we tell would appreciate the convenience of such good music from independent musicians on their computer. It would be such a good way to help all of us reach even more listeners. With IMRadio, we aren't just waiting at the mercy of some major label to decide whether or not they will let us be heard around the world. There are enough of us that the outreach could be exponential. And, wouldn't it be a great way to say 'thank you' to Paddy and all of the other fine folks who have put IMRadio.com on the world's musical map. They have put in money, time, energy and dedication, and all they have asked of us in return is to upload our music and profile. I am sure that they have great plans to publicize IMRadio and bring it to even more listeners. In the meantime, through, wouldn't it be great if we could all help a little by just taking a little time each day to tell family, friends, fans and acquaintances about IMRadio. It wouldn't cost a dime, just a little time. Yours, in Musical Solidarity, Paul.

"From I had a dream to keep hope alive, to yes we can these days we'll survive, we will thrive, he won't leave the people behind - From a Bush Abomination to ‘ObamaNation,’ (soon) you can ask you can tell, take off the mask you can yell, from a Bush Abomination we take back our nation, Obama Nation, the American Nation...” Please give a listen to our new folk/reggae/rock song "ObamaNation” [Davies Dawn Music, BMI]. If you like it, spread the word. Thanks. Peace. Paul from Future Now.
