What a pleasant surprise! Barry Noakes release titled “A New Dawn” is a chirpy, western influenced British folk pop track with an added skip in its step that separates it from its rivals. Barry’s vocals aren’t the most refined in the world, but added with the string section, storytelling style and heart-on-sleeve character – perfection wouldn’t suit. The slight shake in the vocals add a comforting and humanising element, almost amplifying the inviting atmosphere and pulling the listener in even closer.

There’s a warmth that can be found in Barry’s songwriting that will put a smile on anyone’s face. The soundtrack to a summer of possibility that lies ahead of us.
