The Sensational Barnes Brothers

“The Barnes Brothers pair uplifting lyrics with emotional melodies that are altered each and every time they are sung.”

- Blue Rock Review

The Sensational Barnes Brothers are a musical blend of old and new, a real gem in the gospel/soul scene. As PopMatters states, “The brothers run through a spectrum of moods and modes in their gospel soul, often bridging the gap between, say, the Soul Stirrers and Stax, all the while keeping a local flavor.” The brothers can dive deep into their roots, creating a sound that reflects the music of their history, all the while drawing in a modern-day audience.

The Sensational Barnes Brothers are featured on vocalist Don Bryant’s Grammy-nominated album Don't Give Up on Love, and you can also hear them on several tracks from the album XOPA by Latin Grammy-nominated Making Movies. The band has also recorded with the lead singer of The Black Keys, Dan Auerbach.

These talented brothers made their mark with their first album, Nobody’s Fault But My Own under Bible and Tire Recording Co. Fat Possum. Inspired by their shared past, fueled by harmonies that resonate with both their blood and their kindred souls, The Sensational Barnes Brothers are here to stay, singing, playing, and dancing for a long, long time. Their new album of all originals will be released in fall 2024.
