Singer-songwriter Dave Barnes is known for warmth and vulnerability as a lyricist. The words to his songs feel familiar long before the final chord is heard. For 10 years and with five well-loved studio albums, the Nashville-based artist has effortlessly melded pop, country, rock, and soul. Barnes’ sixth and latest album, Stories To Tell —due out March 13, 2012 on Razor & Tie Records—is a perfect combination of what fans have grown to love about him and an interesting newness. Organic instrumentation with expansive synthetic textures and modern R&B-flavored beats, this album was written from a new place for Dave – father-to-be – and recorded in a new city – Los Angeles – by pop-rock savant John Fields (Lifehouse, Switchfoot, Goo Goo Dolls, Jonas Brothers, Pink).

But one of Barnes’ talents as a writer is his ability to be deeply introspective in a way that’s broadly appealing. There is no better example than Barnes’ #1 song “God Gave Me You.” Nominated for the Best Country Song Grammy as performed by Blake Shelton on 2011’s Red River Blue album, Barnes’ and Shelton’s versions of the song have sold over one million singles to date. And with the variety of sounds heard on each of his albums, it is clear to see why he is compatible touring with such diverse and established acts as John Mayer, Taylor Swift, Lady Antebellum, Bonnie Raitt, and One Republic.
