Welcome

Barleycove is a folk-rock band out of the Carolinas.  Described as "modern folk and Americana with tinges of classic rock in the vein of Fleetwood Mac"*, barleycove seeks to merge the sounds of the seventies with the influences of this age. Setting up to gain more listeners with their debut LP, 'Release', barleycove believes in the power of music and the healing it can bring. 

 

'Release' is the first LP from barleycove.

What's Happening

We're Back!  

The only constant in life is change, and we are a living testimony to that!  Add a marriage, a baby, a new band member, and we are barleycove 2.0!!  We are happy to announce that the amazingly talented, Nick Evangelista, has joined the band as of 2015. He studied guitar at the Musician's Institute and was with the band, Signals, in the 80s. Yes, the odds are against us.  We've been told age is a factor.  We've been told rock-and-roll is dead. However, as Wayne Dyer said, "Don't die with your music still in you".   And we'll take that as permission to move forward. 
 

New Video, "Transit Love" 

Woo hoo!!  It's time to celebrate!  We just released our first video for our first single, "Transit Love"!  Up-and-coming director, Tiffany Weathers, of FireFly Ink took us under her wing to bring the song to life.  Shot in a 90s style reminiscent of MTV's, The Real World, "Transit Love", is all about finding "real love" in this modern day era of emails and text messages.  

We would like to thank all of our dear friends who came out to support us and be apart of our first video.  A big shout-out is due to Lisa and Grey Garland for allowing us to film at Stomping Grounds.  The rest of the video was shot in downtown Greer and Landrum, SC.  

Now, please take a view for yourself and let us know your thoughts:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qUuuiCH9syw&feature=youtu.be

Lights, Camera, Video Shoot Time! 

Shooting the video for our first single, 'Transit Love'.


In preparation of releasing our first LP, we began shooting the video for our first single, "Transit Love," this past Tuesday at the lovely, Stomping Grounds, in Greer, SC.  We are working with up-and-coming director, Tiffany Weathers, of FireFly INK Productions out of Greenville, SC.  She was interested in working with us, and she understood the direction and message of the song.  

A huge thank you to Lisa and Grey Garland for allowing us to shoot at Stomping Grounds, and to all of our friends, new and old, who stood it out with such patience and grace while being filmed.  We truly feel blessed by the support of our community and feel the love for independent musicians trying to pursue their passion. Thanks for believing in us!
