Austin-based band, The Barrens, is a five-piece, alternative-country group brought together by a Facebook twist of fate and meeting of the musical minds. Their sound is a confluence of early alternative and 90s country. Much like the states they hail from —Michigan, Indiana, and Texas, The Barrens’ sound resides in the in betweens. Together, members Jordan Gibbons, Dana Smith, Trey Connor, Nick Chambers, and Cory Chenoweth create layered and nostalgic Americana rooted in a tenacious and distinctive desert sound. The Barrens are currently planning a tour across Canada and the U.S. to support debut EP, "Young" which is scheduled to hit the airwaves in early 2020.
