Location: O'Fallon, Missouri
Genre: Alternative Rock/Country
Key Track(s): True
Barley Station is not easily categorized genre-wise because they offer so many different
variations of rock sounds. On their latest project, AFTER ALL, Barley gives us a solid
listen that offers a little bit of country, folk and acoustic music.
"True" is a good song by this diverse St. Louis band. This song not only shows off
Barley Station's experience making music, it is also a great representation of what the
band has to offer in the way of songwriting and uniqueness. The vocal performance on
this one is nice and laid back and it fits the music perfectly. This is a great song that I'm
glad I got to hear. I highly recommend this tune if you're looking for a great song to buy.
Other awesome songs on AFTER ALL include: "Common Knowledge", "Close To One",
and "I Found You". These tracks are proof of the bands consistency and focus.
Overall, I think Barley Station's eclectic brand of rock, country and folk music will give
fans of those genres something to talk about. Unlike many bands, Barley Station isn't
just creating music and calling it alternative, they've really mixed things up on AFTER
ALL, making it a truly alternative rock album. I'd recommend checking them out today.
MUSICAL GOAL: "The ultimate goal is to make a decent living writing, recording, and
performing original music for the rest of our lives, and when all is said and done, to have
provided music to the world that people can find a real connection with, bringing them joy,
sharing their sorrow, etc. Oh, and to have been "on the cover of Rolling Stone" (in the
words of Dr. Hook and the Medicine Show) Had to throw that in there." - Barley Station
