The Barnsons

Genre: Country Rock / New Country, Praise / Worship

Size: Trio
Type: Original / Indie Band

The Barnsons reside in beautiful White Rock British Columbia, Canada. The band comprises of Bassist and Background Vocalist - Janice Barnson, Drummer and Background Vocalist - Gerry Barnson and Guitarist, Singer/Songwriter - Lori Barnson. For 10 years the band has been performing their unique brand of Christian Pop/Country for audiences all over the Pacific Coast of Canada.

In March 1999 the band released their album "The Road to Something More". The album's release was kicked off by a concert tour with Country Greats Farmer's Daughter and Lisa Brokop. The Band was also invited in the summer of 2001 to be apart of 'Rootsfest' in Victoria B.C. That same day Lori had the privilege of sitting in on a songwriter in the round session with the legendary Tom Rush (producer of Jackson Browne/Joni Mitchell) and the stellar songwriter Cheryl Wheeler ( writer for Bette Midler/Suzy Bogguss/Garth Brooks/Juice Newton). 'Rootsfest' attracts some 15,000 people annually to Royal Roads University. These experiences have caused increased exposure of their music to Christian audiences as well as the secular community of music lovers at large.

Currently The Barnsons are continuing to play their spirited music on stages everywhere here on the West Coast of Canada and wherever they are called! Their belief and faith in God are what ignites and excites them. "The songs I Write are gifts from God," Lori says. "When someone unwraps a song and finds new life that's the bottom line, and that's what all the hard work is for."
