When a songwriter can tell a good story and create vivid pictures in your mind with his lyrics, then you know there is something remarkable going on. Such is the case with singer-songwriter, Barry Hebert. The youngest of four children in a family that loved music, Barry Hebert grew up listening to singer-songwriters at an early age. He is especially fond of artists like James Taylor, Jim Croce, Jimmy Buffet, the Eagles, as well as the old country masters such as Merle Haggard, Johnny Cash, and Hank Williams. While in pursuing a degree in Geology in the early 1980's he became one of the original members of a country group called the Basin Brothers Band, performing in and around his hometown of Lafayette, Louisiana. As the band's popularity grew, they began to venture out from Louisiana and started playing the Texas dancehall circuit. During that time, Barry began writing songs with several of them making their way into the Band's setlist. Eventually, the Basin Brothers returned to their Louisiana roots and they began concentrating on Cajun music. This happened at a time when Cajun music was just beginning to spread beyond Louisiana’s borders. The Basin Brothers Band began touring across the United States and Canada playing venues such as the Greek Theater in Hollywood. The group's first album release on the Flying Fish Label was nominated for a Grammy in the "Best Traditional Folk Recording" category.
Barry Hebert has been professionally involved with music for a long time. In the early years he wasn’t particularly interested in singing, preferring to stand aside and play, but sometime around 1982 he became involved with a country group called the Basin Brothers Band, performing in and around South Louisiana. The group enjoyed some real success, playing the Texas dancehall circuit and eventually touring nationally. During the last few years, however, Barry has focused more on his own songs. Worn Wooden Floors is a delightful CD and the start of something good. I hope you will take the time to really listen to it. Check out Barry Hebert’s webpage at www.barryhebertmusic.com
