Gerry Barnum

Gerry Barnum is a well seasoned artist and his style can be described as "soulful roots original" and his songwriting ranges from tender to footstompin'.

Since his last recording "Live at the Blues Underground" in 08 which was a tribute to his roots and his interpretations of some classic Blues songs, Gerry has definitely shifted into some new terrain. It's still roots and rhythm but the new recordings are influenced by some altered guitar tunings that he has been exploring and writing around.

There's just a bit of a jazz influence emerging and the sonic landscape has definitely widened way out with the addition of a keyboardist. Gerry is also getting more into arrangement rather than straight composition with the live ensemble in mind.

Gerry's songs stand up very well with just an acoustic guitar, harmonica and voice: and with his ensemble; the songs have a great set of legs to stretch out and move and groove with.

Gerry has just completed his fifth recording titled "Step On In" featuring twelve new original songs, due out in March 2011.

Recorded between late October 2010 and early January 2011 at Lois Lane Recording Studio in Nanaimo B.C. with Pat Steward and Doug Elliot: drums,bass (Odds, Colin James), Darcy Phillips: keys (Jann Arden) Guest appearances by: Tina Jones (The Kerplunks), vocals, trumpet and Nick Hornbuckle (John Reishman and the Jaybirds) on banjo. Co-produced by Gerry Barnum and Rick Salt.
