Barren Leagues began in 2016 when recently-graduated college buddies Paul & Tyler reconnected 2 years later. We are currently operating out of Charlotte & Raleigh, NC, with plans to cover both areas as well as anywhere along the I-40/85 Corridor.

We are fascinated by both the vast expanses of Space and the Darkest Depths of the Ocean, which is the origin behind the name "Barren Leagues." We also aim to incorporate a little bit of Tyler's Blues background and Paul's nu-Metal, Gothic, & Doom tastes into an amalgamation of Rock, Post Grunge, and Metal. We strive to transcend genre labels, yet to still retain a signature sound.

The ideal situation we are looking for is to become a touring 4 piece. Currently we are looking for an available drummer and either a rhythm guitarist or keyboard player (with it being highly preferable that one of them can sing harmony/backing vocals) to round out the band, add additional layers to the sound, and bring fresh prospective and positive energy.
