Bio

I am a musician, composer & producer from Argentina, currently based in Sheffield, UK.

I am known for my calming and sentimental music, which is a mixture of simple guitar harmonies with open chords and also I use software instruments to create a mix between acoustic and electronic music. My main influences are Bossa Nova, Blues, Jazz, Folk, Chill Out… I play the guitar, bass guitar, ukulele, keyboard and a variety of percussion instruments. I produce and record all the music I do in my Home Studio.

I was born in Buenos Aires, Argentina in 1979, moving to a beautiful village in the Patagonian mountains when I was 16. When I was 18 I became interested in Carpentry and decided to built a wooden, rustic cabin in the forest to be able to have more time to make and record music… It took me one year to build the cabin and when was done I spend 3 years making and recording music on an old tape recorder... this gave me the opportunity to incursion and explore my own musical style which I continued to develop during the years.

Actually I live and work in Sheffield as a Handyman and as a composer… the first one give me a regular income and the second one an ocasional one…

I usually help other people to record, mix or master their albums and also love to collaborate with other musicians in any project available.

Please get in touch if you wish...

Best wishes,

Javier Barrios
