Barelyon is what happens with the Big Apple meets the Motor City. A champion and an underdog rolled into one. A ton of hustle and zero ounces of quit. Stylistically, raw, soulful, pop rock with influences from Amy Winehouse, Frank Sinatra, The White Stripes, John Mayer, and other artists known for embracing the history of music while molding it into something new. Originally from NYC and Detroit respectively, Barelyon is a collaboration between Leona CW and Brion RGB (Riborn) –and often other groovy music people– creating music with a focus on duets and harmonies. Almost every song is an interaction between singers. There is no lead. Barelyon is a duo. Barelyon is a trio. Barelyon is a band. Barelyon is.
Confused?Don’t be. Barelyon is a duo, and we’ve released 2 new tunes AND a music video (three things!) as part of our single “Slow and Steady” on bandcamp. The video for “Slow and Steady” is also live exclusively on IGTV. Links below, babies. Hope you enjoy them as much as we enjoyed creating them for you.
In times like these, we’ve gotta keep it light somehow! Barelyon isn’t really changing our name, but a lot has changed…
Tomorrow (FRIDAY, MARCH 20th) on our bandcamp site, anything you purchase will be passed on to us with no fees. Bandcamp is doing this to help artists like us who make their living performing live. And they’re cool.
All our shows & gigs are canceled indefinitely, and it would mean the world to us if you would support us by going to bandcamp and getting an album or single, and giving anything you can. Brion’s solo albums will also be available with no fees.
We will have more news soon, on how we plan on performing for you during this time when we cannot perform in public, and some other groovy stuff that we know you’ll like. Stay healthy, safe, & sexy y’all.
We had some fun talking with Michael about what Thanksgiving dish we would eliminate from the Thanksgiving canon (by using a cannon?). How our songwriting process works… we think? Also surfers and salads. And lots of intimate tidbits about what makes Barelyon Barelyon.
