David Barrett Trio Vinyl coming soon!

  • March 9, 2018

I had the very fortunate experience of having my guitar hero produce one of my albums. Initially, I thought when Alex Lifeson offered to produce my next recording it would be just a simple understated guitar record, but he persuaded me to use a trio to develop the instrumentals on a much larger scale. We ended up making an epic progressive rock album, that featured not only Alex producing, but we managed to get Alan Parsons, and Richard Chycki on board too. It truly was a life changing opportunity that lead to many careers highlights for me, such as being featured in Guitar Player Magazine, having...

  • January 3, 2018

The Mysticism Of Sound And Music, is named after the influential book by Hazrat Inayat Khan, and was recorded during a very prolific period back in 2010, when Rush guitarist Alex Lifeson offered to produce a new recording of mine. In the span of 4 months, in the first part of 2010, I composed and recorded 36 instrumentals that later became the material that the newly formed...
