An indie folk ballad about uncertainties in love and the future comes through with genuine intimacy from Rebecca and Nathan Bliss of Barnaby Bright. The married duo based in Brooklyn is featured in the latest Big Old Big One (BOBO) “Off Stage Show” video release.
The percussionist in the video Eran Shaysh is also the creator of Big Old Big One, a music video blog that films acoustic musicians in off stage settings like Barnaby Bright’s live performance here at Berklee College of Music.
Make sure to like the video on the BOBO blog, so that you can get a free mp3 of this “Finally Said It” live recording.
Rebecca’s bright beautiful voice and euphonium harmonize flawlessly with Nathan’s guitar strums and background vocals. While feeling the love between the two in their shared glances, the lyrics tell the tale of the anguish of finally telling someone the things you never say, a very relatable love story. The clear sound quality in the video makes you feel even more connected to the Barnaby Bright duet.
“We had so much fun playing acoustically. It’s always great to be on a stage with good lighting and awesome sound, but it’s also incredibly special to just play acoustically…no cables, no mics, no amplification,” said Rebecca.
Barnaby Bright’s next Boston show is on May 18 at Berklee College of Music’s Cafe 939. This upcoming show and the BOBO video’s filming at Berklee bring Nathan back to his college days since he attended Berklee for his bachelor’s degree in saxophone performance and jazz composition.
