“"Jeb Barry, is arguably New England’s finest contemporary songwriting talent, blessed with a rare ability to shine a welcome spotlight on some of the darker aspects of the American dream via some of the most arresting material that you could ever wish to hear..." ” - Kevin Bryan

The driving force behind the band since its inception 10 years ago, Jeb is the songwriter and style visionary of the group. A prolific songwriter, Jeb Barry has written over 5000 songs that roam through all styles of music. Jeb is a regular performer in Nashville, especially at the Bluebird Café, and has over a dozen songs published though Washington Street Publishing in Nashville..
His songs have been compared countless times to the likes of Steve Earle, Jason Isbell and Townes Van Zandt, ….sparse, weary songs of the darker side of life… for what of a better description…Americana at its simplest, and finest. Jeb also handles most of the producing and recoding duties as well. Jeb first gained major label (Gary Gersh/Cindi Peters at DGC) attention in the last 1980's and early 1990's in the power pop group The Typicals.
Josh Pisano Drums, percussion
The only other constant on all of the releases has been drummer Josh Pisano. This time, he also assisted in production of the new songs. He also has been rock solid during the live shows, few as they been during the pandemic.
Alan Taylor keyboards and vocals
Alan added his keyboard talents to Ride My Galaxy and will apprear on the new album
Mike O’Neill Acoustic guitar, backing vocals
Multi-instrumentalist was unavailable for most of the recording, but added vocals and acoustic guitars to a couple of the new songs.
Tony Pisano accordion
Yes, he is Josh’s dad…another multi-instrumentalist who has added his accordion skills to many local folk, Irish, rock, and contra bands and project.
"…Jeb Barry is one of those singer-songwriters that could have been sitting around the dining room table with Steve Earle, Guy Clark, Larry Jon Wilson and all the rest of them in Heartworn Highway... "
