1999 Berklee alumnus Nathan Bliss and his wife Rebecca are the voices and the brains behind Barnaby Bright, a multi-instrumental duo that averages 200 shows and 40,000 miles a year. Grand prize-winners of the New York Song Circle competition, Barnaby Bright’s songs have been featured on national television shows such as ER and Days of our Lives.

The duo’s EP Gravity was named one of the top 100 records of the year by Amazon.com, and they are touring near-constantly, playing venues like Lincoln Center and NPR’s Mountain Stage. Barnaby Bright also tours internationally, hauling their trove of instruments from cosmopolises like London and Amsterdam to remote villages like St. Paris, Ohio, and back again, performing songs from EPs Wake the Hero and The Longest Day.
