Album Notes
Michael Snyder-Barker and Chris Broski formed the Barker & Broski project in 2018 to focus on creating original music. Mike's lyrics have been described as a combination of Frank Zappa and Dr. Seuss, and Chris is happy to follow those words to the strange and wondrous places the music takes him. They frequently perform live around Southeast Michigan using instruments as atypical as their songs: The Zendrum and electric classical guitar.

Mike Snyder-Barker is the drummer and primary lyricist. He has loved music since the beginning of time and wanted to channel energies productively. Barker uses words for a living a veritable “wordsmith” and the lyrics started flowing like a river.

Chris Broski plays guitar and shoulders most of the music composition chores. He has been annoying people with guitar for most of his life, and after 40 years he’s starting to sound OK. He’d be content to just strum, but because they can’t afford a bassist he brings fingerstyle guitar to the music of Barker & Broski.

The story of Billy Bob grew out of discovering hidden connections to seemingly unrelated songs. As we realized the relationship between characters and their stories, the middle part of a grand saga "The Ballad of Billy Bob" was born. Look for the stories about how Billy Bob got to where he was and how it all eventually works out on upcoming albums.
