Evocative Folk Rock

Soulful, Evocative Music that Touches the Heart

 

Why you should see this show….

“5j Barrow is the band that makes you stop what you’re doing and soak it all in. Their music is everything you want music to be… Energetic, evocative, unfiltered and beautiful. In an age of auto tune and quantization, top 10 charts without any real instruments on them, 5j Barrow is the cure. With dynamics that range from a whisper to a tsunami, their songs tell stories of love, loss and longing.” (The Street Noise Project, Brad Geyer)
 

5j Barrow Bio
Inspiration seeped through the windows of apartment 5J on Barrow Street looking out over the Hudson River in NYC’s Greenwich Village, where singer-songwriters and Broadway performers, Eryn Murman and Jason Hite, soaked up the energy and passion of musicians, painters, poets and writers who created the Village vibe. Together, they paid tribute to those creative spirits and named their band 5j Barrow, writing music and lyrics with a unique folk/rock sound, touring as a duo, and often picking up Drew Jones on bass and Gerard Canonico on drums. The band has inspired audiences with soulful music, evocative imagery, and lyrics that touch the heart, from the historic Apollo Theater to the open air of Washington Square Park, from the streets of New Orleans to the Rocky Mountains, from California wine country to New England forests.

The duo of Eryn Murman and Jason Hite who originally formed the band in 2011, forged an even stronger bond when they married in 2017. Since then, they’ve toured the country and discovered new inspiration in the mountains of Asheville, NC, a supportive artistic community that resembles the old Village vibe that sparked 5j’s values in independent artistry, community and collaboration. They still travel and tour, a favorite of Sofar Sounds in dozens of cities, and play diverse music venues, house concerts, restaurants, breweries and festivals all over North America.

5j Barrow was named “Best Band in NY” after winning The Greene Space WNYC/WQXR’s Battle of the Boroughs 2014. 5j Barrow released their debut album ‘From the Dim, Sweet Light’ in 2014, and their first two installments of three EPs, produced by Grammy nominated producer David Mayfield, were released October 6th, 2017 (The Journey, Vol. 1) and May 19th, 2018 (The Journey, Vol. 2). The Journey, Vol. 3 is scheduled for release in 2019.

 
Brendan & Caitlin Hearn Bio
Caitlin Hearn studied classical music beginning at age 9 and fell in love with Irish fiddle music soon afterwards. As a teenager she played at venues around the DC metro area as a member of the Irish fiddle youth group the Bog Band. Since then, she has expanded her style to include elements from Irish, Scottish, Quebequois and American folk music. Now she enjoys writing tunes, coming up with cool new song arrangements, and performing with her younger brothers and parents. She currently lives in Cleveland, Ohio.

Having been brought up by musical parents (Dad Hearn plays guitar, Momma Hearn plays flute), Brendan did not wait too long before getting deeply invested in the folk music scene. He took up cello at 8 years old and guitar when he was 12, along with bass. After attending Alasdair Fraser’s Valley of the Moon Fiddle School in 2009, he began chopping and really getting into accompanying tunes. Now, at 23, Brendan has played all over the country and has the most fun performing with his siblings and parents.
