JAMES BARRETT HAS A VISION FOR THE SCRANTON MUSIC SCENE

JAMES BARRETT HAS A VISION FOR THE SCRANTON MUSIC SCENE

We spoke with Scranton singer, songwriter and guitarist James Barrett, who recently released a new single called “Lovely.”

You can watch our conversation below, where we chat about why out of town shows — like March 25 at Rockwood Music Hall on the Lower East Side — are special and how he’d like to make Scranton a more viable market for original music. Barrett also talked about his Good Things are Happening festival, which will take place for a second year,¬†and the¬†inspiration he has taken from artists who got their start in Northeastern Pennsylvania, like Tigers Jaw and Captain, We’re Sinking.
