Built around the evocative vocals and songwriting of Brad Barr and the sturdy and studious drumming of his brother Andrew, Montreal-based Americana/folk-rock quartet the Barr Brothers were formed in 2006 after the dissolution of the siblings’ rock trio The SLIP. Originally based out of Boston, Massachusetts, the Barrs spent the bulk of the 1990s touring with The Slip up to 2004.

The Barr Brothers relocated to Montreal, and the duo hooked up with classically trained harpist Sarah Page and Andres Vial and began operating under the Barr Brothers moniker. Their debut album released in 2011 viaSecret City Records, and received positive reviews which helped land the group a spot on The Late Night with David Letterman. The band’s sophomore album, Sleeping Operator, was released October 2014. Sleeping Operator is a bold, dense release, an expansion on a continuum that they set out upon when they tip-toed into the unknown.

Joined by Laura Sauvage the solo project of Les Hay babies Vivanne Roy.
