Album Notes

The Barnacles are a double-fronted band and have a distinctly American musical style blending rock and pop sensibilities with folk, alternative country, retro sounds, and at times with other elements. The band was formed in Missouri, U.S.A. and has toured both regionally and nationally.

The Barnacles have three vocal contributors in Brian Olen Kious (Guitars, Vocals) offering a warm resonate voice, Randy Belt (Bass, Vocals) adding a dynamic vocal range and smooth tones, and Steve Meyers (Drums, Vocals) offering an extra baritoned voice as he sits behind it all on his drums voicing out the beats needed to make this melting pot of sound come alive with rhythm.

Playback magazine has said of their latest CD INLAND & OTHERWISE, "The disk, a flavorful mix of alt-country, pop, and rock, has several amazingly good songs."

The UK website has said of the new CD, "Songwriting is back!"


From its first inception in 2000, The Barnacles were picked to receive video-play of a live performance on the CBS affiliated program Mid-Coast Mania which airs on Channel 4 in St. Louis, Missouri. The band has thus far received airplay on 204 radio stations in just about every state in the U.S. and has received airplay in Belgium and Brazil with promotions on-going.

The Barnacles newest release, a full-length CD titled INLAND & OTHERWISE, is currently being promoted to radio and has been at #1 for 4 weeks on the Radio Charts for station pick-up percentages at their radio promotion firm Sheheshe Music Services. The promotion for The Barnacles first release WIRELESS also attained the #1 slot.

Sheheshe Music Services, The Barnacles' radio promotion firm, had this to say about Inland & Otherwise: "We recently received the latest album and it's a winner! I highly recommend this album! You will agree that there are many good reasons why The Barnacles made #1 on our Radio Charts twice!"

Featuring voices that blend in harmony extremely well and an interchange of musical ideas, this group offers a diversely blended sound of original music that sticks to its roots of influence while also seeking to discover new horizons.

You may or may not find many crazy stage antics but you will encounter a very energetic and enthusiastic band containing three prolific songwriters with tunes that are memorable, and even perhaps unforgettable. You'll find yourself either singing along, dancing, tapping your toes, or maybe even - crying. You can expect to hear carefully placed two and three part harmonies and a driving rhythm section from this band as well as an engaging live performance!

I got Wireless because I already had Inland & Otherwise and I was hoping for more! I got it! Granted, you can tell that it was recorded earlier and they have gotten better since then, but I still love their sound. When can we hear more?
