New Dates For The Slip, Surprise Me Mr. Davis and The Barr Brothers

An early Barr Brothers collaboration

The Slip is a collaboration between bassist Marc Friedman, guitarist Brad Barr and his drummer brother Andrew Barr. The three musicians often perform with singer/songwriter Nathan Moore and keyboardist Marco Benevento as Surprise Me Mr. Davis and now The Barr Brothers will perform together with their own band. The brothers relocated to Montreal a few years ago and started to collaborating with a variety of musicians (including Barr’s Super Little band).

According to the group, “The seeds for The Barr Brothers were first sown five years ago when Brad and Andrew relocated to Montreal. Brad’s apartment shared an adjoining wall with harpist Sarah Page. The two would hear each other practicing through the cracks. Sarah’s gentle melodies began weaving their way into the music that Brad was writing. A friendship was struck and songs were born. This latest endeavor for Brad and Andrew finds them exploring sounds quieter and more ethereal than anything in their previous work. Final touches are currently being added to a debut recording that will be released later this year.”

In addition, Surprise Me Mr. Davis has completed a new EP and The Slip is working on a new full-length studio album. All three bands will tour this spring.
