Abbie Barrett - Thursday Residency at Precinct

Abbie Barrett - Thursday Residency at Precinct


--Photo by Andrew Wallach

Thursdays at Precinct in March belong to velvet-voiced singer/songwriter Abbie Barrett. Her newest album, Dying Day is heavy with emotional lyrics and boasts vivacious beats. Most of the songs on the album are fast-paced and energetic and show a gentle and creative desperation (in a c'est la vie sort of way) that you hear in modern French and Irish folk. Her voice is unique and deep and leads the action-packed rhythms of the album. The title track "Dying Day" and "Bide My Time" are softer and sparkle with American-Country undertones but still contain the slow build and strong punch in the gut (in a butterflies in the stomach sort of way) that the other tracks have. Plus it is good to have something different once in a while. Barrett has the cautious heart of Joni Mitchell and/or Nick Drake and the thick-skinned creativity of Tori Amos.

At Precinct Barrett will be playing with many local bands such as, Dan Blakesee and Jenee Halstead (who will be also playing at the Deli Showcase on the 19th at the Armory - more to come on this soon)The Doctors Fox, Dave Alpert and many more.

Precinct is in Union Sq. Somerville, MA. Every Thursday in March. Abbie Barrett.
