Little Barrie

Little Barrie are a London-based trio whose sound is an exciting blend of hard rock, blues, soul, and funk that calls to mind classic bands of the '60s like Traffic and Cream, and whose loose and groovy earthiness earns them a place near the front of the jam band class. Formed in Nottingham in 2000 by Barrie Cadogan (guitar, vocals), Wayne Fulwood (drums, vocals), and Lewis Wharton (bass), Little Barrie released a handful of singles for small labels like Stark Reality and Showdown before getting signed to Genuine Recordings and beginning work on their first album. Produced by indie pop legend Edwyn Collins (whom Cadogan had met while working in a guitar shop), We Are Little Barrie hit the shops in February 2005.
