The Barr Brothers - Come in the Water

The Barr Brothers performs “Come in the Water” from their 2014 album “Sleeping Operator”.

“There ain’t nobody else here/Feel it still when the planes are coming/I just want to lie here/Left our homes, left our friends/Left the wombs/we lived in/Spread out along the road/And I’ve been weak/When my Lord was calling/The water will take our load…” Hailing from Rhode Island, the two Barr brothers settled in Montreal in 2004. Soon after, harpist Sarah Pagé joined the band. With the addition of multi-instrumentalist Andres Vial, the band was complete. Brilliantly mixing guitar, harp and percussions, this acclaimed quartet collaborated thus far with big names, like Arcade Fire’s Richard Reed Parry, Little Scream and several of Patrick Watson’s musicians. It’s no surprise the Montreal band’s more than efficient folk/blues music draws interest from fans all over the world! Indeed, having played the David Letterman show and as headliners of the 2014 International Jazz Festival in Montréal, the band has a couple million views online. Bottom line: The Barr Brothers is the band of the hour and is worth the discovery. Listen to “Come in the Water” on BRBR!
