Album Notes
Barak Hill is a singer/songwriter from Southwest Missouri. He plays alt. country, acoustic rock, folk rock (it's all the same, call it what you want).

Barak started playing and writing at 14. A decade later, at 24 his lyrics are tight and polished, melodies are musical, and story lines end up twisting a nerve with just about everyone in the audience before the night is over.

Live Barak plays a strong mix of originals and some well chosen covers by his favorite artists. People like The Jayhawks, Wilco, Steve Earle and others. He has shared the stage with acts as diverse as Big Smith and international recording artists Proto Kaw.

The Winter EP, a collection of six original songs, was released in January 2004. He recorded and produced the album in his home studio, enlisting the help of friend Scott Eastman for some electric guitar work. It's a straightforward album with very sparse production - vocals and a couple of guitars for the most part. Barak wanted to let the songs stand on their own, without a lot of bells and whistles getting in the way. They're presented just like you might hear them in a little coffeehouse or bar in some Southwest Missouri town.

It's Alive!!!
We have all heard it, the standard stripped down acoustic EP that your favorite somebody decides to put together for whatever reason. Well in this very dark and sometimes painful world there is a light. I srongly feel this is the best EP I have ever heard. Barak has perfected the stripped down sound and is saying, "HERE I AM EVERYONE!!!!...HERE I AM!" Yes you are here Barak, and I can see you.

I love this CD. The tight arangements and Guitar work provide a aura of a complex yet simple farm laborer. The lyrics are superior to anything on the Billboard. I raise my glass to you Barak, and with an upturned nose and a french-mans wave sweep away the current music scene.
