A few years back, singer-songwriter Tim Barry (Avail) closed out an album by pondering his own death – and he didn't seem to mind leaving this earth too much. "Take what you want/I won't leave much," he sang.
2012 finds him in a very different place. Themes of resilience and hope flow through Barry's new record, ‘40 Miler’, which will be released by Xtra Mile Recordings on 5th November 2012. "If this record is uplifting compared to my old ones it's because I feel stronger from all the beat-downs and shit I've taken in the past," says the Richmond, Virginia-based artist.
