David Barrett Trio


“David Barrett is the leader of DB3, an instrumental band. Making a success out of an instrumental group is not easy, but David has a knack of writing very memorable progressive rock tunes. He is also blessed with the ability to deliver these tunes in a unique way using his collection of electric and acoustic instruments. Couple this with an impressive collection of amps & effects David manages to colour and texture his compositions with lasting impact. David is a rare combination of imagination, dedication and raw talent.” – Terry Brown, producer.

A Canadian guitarist and composer, specializing in his own brand of instrumental guitar music, David Barrett has been featured in international magazines including Guitar Player, Premier Guitar, and Vintage Guitar.

In 2010, David Barrett founded the David Barrett Trio, an instrumental progressive rock power trio. Their debut album was produced by Alex Lifeson (Rush), Alan Parsons (Pink Floyd), and Richard Chycki (Dream Theater). They followed that release with the album David Barrett Trio II, an EP featuring vocalist Michael Sadler (Saga), and the vinyl release Mayapan, produced by Terry Brown (Rush) feat. Canadian power duo Crown Lands. The trio and stellar laser show by Howard Ungerleider (PDI) was captured Live In Concert at The Mod Club Theatre on A Whisper To Thunder (DVD). David continues to work with Terry Brown conducting recording master classes.

In addition to DB3, David Barrett has released over a dozen solo albums, featuring acoustic, electric, classical, mandolin, laud, and steel guitar. David performs solo concerts in North America, and conducts guitar retreats at Chalet Studio in Ontario, Canada, and Sotuta de Peón, Yucatan, Mexico.

David is an endorsing artist for innovative companies such as Pigtronix Futuristic Audio Technology, Mack Guitar Amplifiers, Dagmar Custom Guitars, and D’Addario Canada.
