ABOUT

Hello!

./brettbarrow
       My name is Brett Barrow and I am a Professional Guitarist/Musician living in Los Angeles. I play a variety of styles mainly Jazz, Blues, Funk, Pop. I play original Instrumental compositions, vocal music/songwriting and also have a large repertoire in Jazz Standards as well as popular cover songs(Top 40 for example). I perform locally in Los Angeles and have toured with my group as well as other BandLeaders groups across the country. Some notable areas include SXSW(ATX), SF, New Orleans, NYC and Miami. I attended the University of North Texas and Berklee College of Music in Boston, each for two years (2008-2012). I graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Performance/ProMusic. I have lived in Los Angeles for 7 years working as a professional Guitarist/Musician. I’ve worked a wide range of music Gigs/Shows both live and studio work from Jazz clubs like The Baked Potato, Events/Weddings, Studio sessions for Artist and Networks including CBS for their NFL Football National Broadcast.(Thursday Night Football and more) and CBS Golf National Broadcast.
      While at Berklee College of Music I begin studied with guitarist Richie Hart. While studying with Richie Hart, I became heavily influenced by George Benson and Wes Montgomery. At Berklee, I also spent a year as a member of the Funk and Soul/ensemble led by Lenny Stallworth (RH Factor member, Roy Hargrove) - studying Jazz, Funk, Blues, Rock and Pop with additional instructors including Livingston Taylor; however, Richie and Lenny remained my most influential mentors during my time in Boston.
