David Barrett Trio features David Barrett (guitar), Jason Farrar (bass), and Alexander “Sascha Tukatsch” (drums). In early 2010 they began fleshing out the music for an instrumental power trio. David Barrett Trio’s self titled debut album produced by Alex Lifeson, Alan Parsons and Richard Chycki, was released in 2013.

As a result from all the attention the album generated, the trio has received many stellar reviews online and in publications such as Prog Rock Magazine. David has been featured in such international magazines as Premier Guitar and Guitar Player. Also, David become an endorsing artist for D’Addario Canada, Planet Waves, Pigtronix Futuristic Analog Technology, and Mack Guitar Amps, who has recently designed a signature model called the Atomsmasher DB-40. David is also involved with the inventive Dagmar Custom Guitars, and plays a custom model made to his specifications. Alex Lifeson’s famous Gibson double neck guitar was on loan to David for a couple of years, and can be heard all over their debut album, the guitar now resides in The Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame.

In May of 2012 David Barrett Trio was asked to participate in an all day Alan Parsons Master Class recording workshop at Noble Street Studios in Toronto, in which they were the band being engineered and produced by Alan Parsons himself. The result was Belmonte, which featured guest vocalist Paul Reid. In addition to hosting David’s yearly Ravenswood Guitar Summit, HotHouse Creative director Paul Reid is responsible for the trios photography, video, and design. In addition to that collaboration, in 2013 the trio appeared on Fascination, the latest album by highly acclaimed Canadian songwriter Jacob Moon. DB3 has also recorded a new tune with renown vocalist, Michael Sadler of Saga. The most recent collaboration has been with celtic guitar virtuoso Tony McManus, who appears on the upcoming studio album, due in January of 2015.

In Toronto, DB3 has a monthly residency at the prestigious Orbit Room (coincidentally owned by Alex Lifeson). DB3 has also headlined at larger concert venues such as Mod Club Theatre, and opened for such prog rock legends Saga, and Carl Palmer of Emerson, Lake, And Palmer.

Currently David Barrett Trio is completing their second successful RocketHub Crowdfunding campaign to raise funds to master and manufacture their new live DVD and studio CD. The live DVD captured their CD Release Party at Mod Club Theatre and features a laser show courtesy of Rush lighting director Howard Ungerleider of Production Design International. For their second album DB32, this time the band is self produced, with Alexander “Sascha” Tukatsch manning the console. The trio plans to release both the DVD and CD in January 2015 and hit the road in support of both releases.
