Jumping the lines between folk and acoustic rock, Bev Barnett & Greg Newlon combine their varied musical pasts to create a place where you can relax in the comfort of the groove… and know you're going to leave smiling and maybe just a little more hopeful. The first thing you'll notice is the amazing blend of their voices. Greg's guitar pushes... Bev's voice pulls... together creating lyrics and harmonies that explore life, love and the pursuit of something real.
With exquisite guitar and harmony arrangements and mature songwriting, Bev and Greg move audiences beyond the ordinary singer-songwriter fare. They have been recognized with various songwriting awards, but their real reward is knowing that their songs touch the hearts of their listeners.
Building on a background of performing jazz, classical and American contemporary music from the woodwind section, Bev Barnett has a gift for delivering the essence of a song. Her voice has been called angelic - but with the ability to 'turn down the sheets.' Sometimes you hear the honeyed tones of Mary Chapin Carpenter, and sometimes you hear hints of Sade.
Newlon's guitar encircles the song as he finds his way between the notes with delicacy and strength. His guitar and vocal arrangements are the result of a long and varied musical journey from his rock beginnings combined with a background in musical theatre and barbershop, to the country rock sound of Aspen in the late 1970s and more recently through blues, country and modern folk. All of these influences have shaped his unique, contemporary acoustic style.
Together their harmonies are exquisite, their chemistry is obvious and their laughter is contagious.
