NWA Singer To Appear On ‘The Voice’
Ex Fayetteville High School Teacher Berret Baber is making news again since his announcement last week of his Audition for NBC’s The Voice coming up on September 21st. Barret is no stranger to TV or to winning. In 2014 Barret won a nationwide contest for ABC’ Grammy Gig of a Lifetime, sending him to L.A. and opening in front of millions at the 2014 Grammy Awards. Barret came home to Arkansas to another contest called Songs of Arkansas hosted by the Arkansas Department of Parks and Tourism. Barret’s song “Get There From Here” took the winner’s spotlight and been used to promote Arkansas tourism.
An Arkansas native, Barrett Baber grew up singing in church at a young age in East Arkansas, near some of the most soulful and fertile grounds for musicians in the country. His inspiration for singing and creating music happened from frequent visits to Memphis TN, only a few miles from his hometown in Marion, Arkansas. Beale Street and the corners of downtown Memphis were his first exposure to the street performers and artists steeped in Blues, R&B, Country and Rock.
These real life experiences gave Barrett the influences and inspiration that shines through his music today with his unique, soulful style of singing. His country/soul slant on songwriting gives Barrett a recognizable sound and an authentic, home grown identity. Barrett is performing to growing audiences and bigger stages, and continues to reach new fans nationwide.
A perfect blend of soul and country creates a new genre of country soul that Barrett Baber is now known for. The songs are real, the work is hard and the future is bright for an artist that is willing to be vulnerable and grind until he meets his goals.
