Barrie-James is a Scottish singer-songwriter from Glasgow creating soulful and funk embellished alt-rock taking influence from the likes of Frank Zappa, Elliot Smith and Jeff Buckley. His debut album ‘Cold Coffee’ was produced by Robert Schnapf (credits include Beck, Kevin Devine & Dog Society) and was recorded in Los Angeles where Barrie resided for a few years. After organically building a devoted global fanbase and securing support from Pitchfork and KCRW’s tastemaker Nic Harcout, Barrie moved back to Glasgow and began work on second album ‘Psychedelic Soup’, recorded at Green Door studios. The album in its entirety is written solely by Barrie-James and is a true testament to his hard work, meaningful musical expression and  exceptional songwriting skills. 


Prior to his move stateside, Barrie-James was part of Scottish alternative folk rock outfit Kassidy. During their 5 year tenure they sold out shows across the UK including iconic Glasgow venue - The Barrowlands Ballroom. With two albums now under his belt, Barrie-James has plans to tour the UK, EU and South America later this year and into early 2021.
