Tim Barry’s been kicking around the musical underground for nearly 20 years, first as the front man for Virginia punk heroes Avail, and more recently as a singer-songwriter with a penchant for constructing beautiful folk and country tunes. Dude’s been particularly busy the past few years, gigging relentlessly, including a couple months on the inaugural Revival Tour with fellow travelers Chuck Ragan, Ben Nichols, and Tom Gabel, and generating a steady stream of recordings.

In late 2009 he released a split 7” EP with pal Frank Turner (a co-release by Epitaph and Suburban Home), while 2010 saw the arrival of 28th and Stonewall, Barry’s third full length recording, a masterful collection of heartsick dirges, wry commentary, and upbeat stomp-alongs (Suburban Home). The summer and fall of 2010 brought in a slew of shows to Australia (with the Revival Tour), a nationwide tour with The Gaslight Anthem, and a handful of shows in Canada with some dear friends.
