Recent Bio Written by "someone else"

John Barrell is a local musician and has been living and playing in various bands in Alexandria, Louisiana since 1982. His latest musical album, TRANSITIONS is a compilation of his various styles, influences and talents as a musician. John enjoys playing music both as a member of the local rock band RELIX and creating music on the side as a solo artist. Along with being a strong vocalist his primary musical instrument of choice is the rhythm guitar and 12-string acoustic but is also very accomplished at the bass and lead guitar and some ukulele, Indian Sitar and Egyptian Oud. About four years ago John began playing music with some local musicians and they formed the band RELIX. Since then they have developed a small but loyal following and keep very busy playing local venues every weekend and on occasion even two shows in the same day. As a group, they play mostly cover tunes at the request of the crowds, but also write some of their own material. This experience ignited a new fire and passion within John and he began to write and record on his own with the blessings of his band brothers. One song, “Breaking Away” features the talents of the entire band. On many songs you will also find the talent of friends, family and fellow musicians. TRANSITIONS is a compilation of songs that have defined stages in John’s life as a musician. Some songs are over 30 years old, such as “Plastic Foxes” that was written on a sheet of notebook paper during 11th grade English class about cute stuck up high school girls. Others, such as “You & I” and “Every Little Thing” have been written more recently and reflect the relationship he has with his wife. One of the most unique aspects of the album TRANSITIONS is the fact that each song has a different feel and vibe to it. There is a musical style to meet everyone’s taste. Some songs are melodic ballads while others definitely fall into the head-banging, fist pumping area and the rest fall in-between to the more classic rock vein. TRANSITIONS is a musical journey of John’s life and growth as an artist. As you listen to the album, allow yourself to be swept along on the journey as well and enjoy the trip.

TELL EVERY ONE ABOUT IMRadio -- Got to thinking. What if each of us independent musicians told our family, friends, fans and acquaintances about, 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 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.
