Sometimes, things just seem to make sense. This was the case when friends and family mentioned to Shay and Barrett that they should try playing together. Barrett had been a long time guitar player/arranger who was looking for the next adventure in music. Shay was a singer-songwriter that was looking to take his music to the next level. Together they were able to take the raw music they had created, and turn it into something new and powerful. The more they played together, the more the sound grew. It seemed like every time they picked up guitars, something new would spring forth. Acoustic guitars and an interwoven melody and harmony vocals made up the staple of their music. Barrett lives in Monterey County, CA and Shay lives in San Jose, CA. Playing and together meant that one or the other were driving the stretch of Highway 101 that connected their homes. This drive became both the symbolic and physical link between the two musicians. It was their mission to bring this music to others. Mission 101.
