Picture leaving your town and traveling the back roads of North America. Picture the sights you'd see, the people you'd meet. Do you miss home? Do you feel small compared to the vastness of the world? Set those feelings to music, and your result will sound a lot like Michael Barrow & The Tourists.
Provo, UT based Folk/Rock group Michael Barrow & The Tourists blends folk textures with smooth electric guitar solos that would feel at home on John Mayer's Continuum. Selling out local venues, they have been praised for their soulful lead vocals, introspective lyrics, and tight live performance. The band has opened for notable acts like John Allred and Ben Rector. Michael Barrow & The Tourists consists of Michael Barrow (Lead Vocals, Guitar), Trevor Harmon (Lead Guitar), Alessandro Improta (Bass), Reed Perkins (Drums), and Zach Collier (Keys).
On May 12, 2017 the band released their debut album, Juneau. The album was mixed and mastered by Chicago native Brian Zieske, who produced the breakthrough records for both The Hush Sound and The Academy Is... in the early 2000's.
Music from Juneau is making a splash on the Indie music circuit. Tracks from the album have featured extensively by alexrainbirdMusic, Indie Feed, Ame Music, SamFish Music, Wave of Good Noise, Indiemono, Music Existence, and EarToTheGround Music. Within weeks of the album's release, the band is already reaching thousands of listeners.
It's time to get swept away by the music of Michael Barrow & The Tourists.
Let's take a trip.
