About This Event
Barak Hill is an award winning Americana singer-songwriter and producer raised in Kansas and Oklahoma, and now based out of Springfield, Missouri. He plays solo and with the band, The hurricanes.
In a review of Barak's album, This Life I Love, Chris DeRosier of TAG Magazine had this to say: "Where Hill excels, and so few of his contemporaries do, is in making silence and pause into storytelling devices unto themselves...Hill’s lyrical approach is economical and plain-spoken, the words of everyman. But they’re delivered with the careful pacing and assuredness of a man who knows the impact he wants and how to get it. It’s this sense of when not to sing or even play that lends the songs a gravitas they could lose in the hands of someone else."
Barak has shared the stage with acts like Amanda Shires and Jay Farrar. His acoustic indie folk style is a perfect fit for intimate house concerts where he can tell the stories behind his songs and connect with audiences on a more personal level.
