Aiden Barrick, Utah based singer-songwriter, uniquely blends gutsy folk rock and beat poetry in breathtakingly original work. Their catalog of music resonates with listeners who crave vulnerability and bold authenticity. Saturated in life’s experience, Barrick is propelled by rage underpinning radical love which adds to their rich language of expression. As a vocalist they display emotional acuity seducing audiences and engaging fans. Their anecdotal acumen as a lyricist, weaving themes of politico-religious oppression, romantic love and self-acceptance, has garnered comparison to Brandi Carlile, Indigo Girls, Tracy Chapman and Andrea Gibson.
Straddling genres of Americana and indie-folk rock Barrick isn’t concerned with fitting in. The crux of their platform is layered with hauntingly comforting melodies, raw powerhouse vocals and intentional messages of social justice, trans rights, and inclusion.
Upcoming projects include: releasing new singles, planning a tour and promoting poetry book Forward, Never Straight.
