With “drama tinged folk that could raise the dead,” (The Deli Magazine) 5j Barrow have announced the release of their new EP, The Journey: Vol.1, this fall. The follow-up to their 2014 debut release, The Journey: Vol.1 was produced by the Grammy-nominated producer, David Mayfield.
Founded and fronted by singer-songwriters and Broadway actors, Eryn Murman and Jason Hite, 5j Barrow have built a loyal following on the streets of New York City. With performances everywhere from the open air of Washington Square Park to Rockwood Music Hall and the historic Apollo Theatre, they “draw sonic inspiration from acts ranging from Avett Brothers and The Civil Wars.” (Acoustic Guitar Magazine) In 2014, the band was named "Best Band in NY" after winning The Greene Space WNYC / WQXR's Battle of the Boroughs 2014. That year also saw the release of the “rollicking, energetic [record]” (Indie-Minded), From the Dim, Sweet Light.
“A delicious combination of genres” (For Us Not Them), 5j Barrow is completed by bassist, Drew Jones, and drummer, Gerard Canonico. Murman and Hite also frequently appear as a duo, as they will on their upcoming tour.
