Barrie shares new single “Jenny”

Today Barrie, the musical output of New York-based singer, songwriter and producer Barrie Lindsay, has shared a new single from her forthcoming second album Barbara, to be released on March 25th via Winspear.

Says Barrie of the song: “I was looking to James Taylor for the guitar and The Band for the organ to try to capture an Americana feel for Jenny. These artists are able to simultaneously encapsulate a swagger and an earnestness that gives their music a grown-up, classic feel. I wanted Jenny to be like an American Songbook song; any level of musician could play it and it would feel good to play either alone with one’s guitar, around a campfire with some friends, or at a big concert with everyone singing along.”

I wrote it while reflecting on a memory from tour, when I met my wife. We had a day off in Austin, and a group of us went swimming in a creek. I was picturing that day, before I was aware of any connection between us, and imagining how it would have played out if I had been. I wasn’t devoted right away, I wasn’t sure.
