James G Barry – ‘Conga Ray’

A Brooklyn-based singer-songwriter capturing the more mythological side of music, James G Barry has swept into the spotlight with the release of new single, ‘Conga Ray’. A founding member of Crier Brothers, Empire Vista Social Club, The Ferro Alloy Orchestra, and the music director for ‘The Show Tonight’, a comedy/music showcase, James has carved out a unique path through New York’s music scene, and his new single proves to be a perfect illustration of his talents.

A guitarist since the young age of twelve, James is a true and undeniable musician, one who breaks down barriers and pushes his sound to every far-flung genre of music. As a solo performer, James has already released a string of impressive releases, capturing a wild, eclectic aesthetic that will appeal to every music fan. Starting with 2007’s ‘Wake Up Singing’, which came from an experience that he had at a Krishna Das performance in the East Village, and pushing through to the present day, James’ music surpasses all expectations and pre-conceived ideas to boldly make something new.

Available now on all major platforms, ‘Conga Ray’ is a stellar new cut taken from the band’s upcoming album ‘Trick or Treat’, which is scheduled for release later this year. A beautifully cut track that holds true to James’ sound, style, and humour, ‘Conga Ray’ is a mythological story about a mystical musician who captures the power of the stars by learning the universal truth.

Alongside the release of the new single, James has also shared a very special animated video for the track, which he created alongside his bandmate David B Wilson and director Carlos Lamontini. Available now on YouTube, the video sees live shots of the band blending with fun Claymation clips that add a new layer to the anthemic track. Check it out below.

Drawing inspiration from a wide range of genres, James and his band have created a uniquely engaging sound in ‘Conga Ray’, delving into rock, jazz, and modern alt-pop to create some of the most interesting sounds around. An unmissable new release, you can find the single alongside three more of James’ most recent hits on Spotify and don’t forget to follow him on his social media pages below for more.
