Barry International, writer/producer, is an eclectic mixture of various musical genres, and various musical influences combined to create this Man of EROS.. In essence,his creativity allows him to transcend all musical boundaries and categories, and -much to the
chagrin of many, and all labels..Barry International's prolific lyrics of Love, enhance romance, and infuse Love into broken hearts, while stroking the libido, and taking one's psyche on a most passionate ride...He takes you to higher dimensions of Love and Happiness..
In his youth, he would go to sleep at night listening to Jimi Hendrix, he has a strong fascination and love of guitars, James Brown taught him to 'get on up like a Sex Machine', Norman Whitfield
taught him production techniques, the vocals of Grace Slick took him to fantasy land, Bob Seger taught him to turn the page, Sly Stone caught his ear with I Want To Take You Higher etc. and so forth..
With many influences churning within him, his creativity came to fruition in sweet home Chicago, there, he learned the creative power his mind contained-for his love of music which drove him to learn the business, he was blessed by acquiring the knowledge of how to record, promote and market.
He left the home of his creative birth, and undertook his life's greatest journey, women, whiskey-and recording studios brought him to life, for the studio was his laboratory, love became his refuge, his sanctuary,under the influence of his musical addiction- he experimented
until he found his sound, which no one could categorize, people just knew that heretofore, they had never heard anything like this man of music's love creations.
His skills were acquired while travelling the spectrum of this business of music, he paid his dues in excess, managed a local hard rock band and converted them to rock heroes, he developed an expertise in working with female singers..
Real Music by Real Musicians..There is no other producer in this business of music as well skilled as Barry International.
He is a man of love, which his music conveys, he is THE man-of music, no one can match his creativity, musically speaking, prolifically-he s ascending to the top, while the guitars play, and the women sing...
