Serious Sam Barrett is your friend. A musician you can rely on. Write, record, tour. He does it with such regularity, as if his actions are dictated by the gravitational pull of the moon. Time after time he shows his dedication to DIY, punk, and making honest, heart-felt music. The music is acoustic, it’s olde timey, and it’s traditional country/folk music. It encapsulates simplicity while being technical and ambitious. And though I may never find myself listening to his records in the middle of the day, this music is made for early mornings and late nights. It can be both energizing and tranquil. It’s reliable like that.
