Barry Charles – Little Red Kitchen Bellingen
May 20, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pmDonation
“Barry Charles is a unique singer from a blues and rock background renowned for his exceptional vocal range and technique. He performs with spontaneity, emotion and originality to which he adds the magic ingredients of soulfulness, humour and a great repertoire.”
Born into a family of singers, his grandfather had a bass baritone voice and his father was a tenor. He can incorporate in a performance innovative scatting, interwoven with the unmistakable sounds of Tuva singing with influences here from [the late] Paul Pena. Barry can explore the technique of split harmonics and his phrasing is quite unique.
With inspirational inflections from the likes of Tom Waits, Otis Redding, Percy Sledge, Tim Buckley and Al Green evident in the emotional colour of his delivery.
