Jesse Barnett (Stick To Your Guns, Trade Wind) is a working machine. Between fronting two bands and running his label Other People Records, Barnett has been working on something special on his own. Today, the vocalist announced his solo project, Wish You Here and debuted the first single titled "No Say."
Upon the announcement, Barnett shared, "Today I’m releasing a song from a collection of songs I’ve been sitting on for the last 4 years under the project name ‘Wish You Were Here’. Written and recorded in a bedroom in Montreal with the help of my main squeeze @producedbydh. Guest guitar appearance from the genie @scottbryanruth. Single artwork by true talent @brettromo."
In 2012, Barnett launched a Kickstarter campaign for an acoustic album that exceeded it's $2,000 goal with a total of $2,132. In the Kickstarter description, Barnett said the acoustic album would consist of "8 -10 track yet-to-be-named acoustic album. Every instrument will be played and recorded by me."
If you're enjoying what you hear then you will be happy to hear that Wish You Were Here's first show will take place next weekend (Saturday Sept. 8th) supporting fellow Southern California artist Cory Wells at his headlining show at Chain Reaction in Anaheim, CA. Tickets are available now.
