Breaking Barriers is an independent alternative rock band from Bristol, CT. Formed by Dave Kaherl (vocals, guitars) and Pat Fitzgerald (drums) in 2007, the band has since added Eric Turner (bass) and Matt Henchcliffe (guitars, keys), who joined in early 2008. They are influenced by a number of different musical styles and blend it together creating a unique, familiar, yet unpredictable sound. Some songs are acoustic with harmonies ("Foolish", "Love is Waiting") and some are progressive rock ballads ("Revolving Thoughts"). There are also hints of electronic rock throughout their music ("Wondrous Love", "Clouds"). The lyrics can be best described as being fully emotive, encapsulating heartbreak and joy while pointing to our dependence on a greater love. Breaking Barriers makes music to share their stories, journeys, and lives with their listeners, and to communicate that a greater hope and purpose for all of us can be found right inside us.
