“David Barrett is the leader of DB3, an instrumental band. Making a success out of an instrumental group is not easy, but David has a knack of writing very memorable progressive rock tunes. He is also blessed with the ability to deliver these tunes in a unique way using his collection of electric and acoustic instruments. Couple this with an impressive collection of amps & effects David manages to colour and texture his compositions with lasting impact. David is a rare combination of imagination, dedication and raw talent.” – Terry Brown, producer.
In 2010, guitarist David Barrett founded the David Barrett Trio, an instrumental progressive rock power trio. DB3 has been produced by Terry Brown, Alex Lifeson, Alan Parsons, and Richard Chycki, and they’ve collaborated with Michael Sadler (Saga), Jacob Moon, and Crown Lands. They’ve shared the stage with Marillion, Carl Palmer, and Saga, and headlined the Canadian Guitar Festival. DB3 is now rocking with Paul DeLong on drums and Scott Matthews on bass and they played their first gig at this years guitar summit. The new record Infinito, produced by Terry Brown, will be released later this year and the boys are really excited about it.
In addition to DB3, DB has released many solo albums, featuring acoustic, electric, classical, mandolin, laud, and steel guitar. DB performs solo concerts and conducts guitar retreats in Canada and Mexico. DB has been featured in international magazines including Guitar Player, Premier Guitar, and Vintage Guitar, and is an endorsing artist for innovative companies such as D’Angelico Guitars, Pigtronix Futuristic Audio Technology, Mack Guitar Amplifiers, and D’Addario Canada.
