Del Barber Signs to Six Shooter Records for 'Headwaters' LP
The album was produced by Sam Kassirer, with whom Barber recorded rough versions of 30 songs before narrowing that list down to ten. In a statement, Barber said, "It needed to be traditional, contemporary, fresh and urgent in its scope."
Barber said of the results, "Headwaters is a collection of parables, hymns and manifestos, stories of love and loss, sadness and joy, threaded together by the search for an ultimate source."
You can preview the album by listening to three of its twangy tunes -- "Everything Is Not Enough," "The Waitress" and "Love and Wine" -- which are streaming at the bottom of the page.
