New Music | Barna Howard – Timber Nails and Tears
by Kyle Mitchell, the editor and founder of Music Savage, lover of music, hater of remixes.
Back in January I featured Barna Howard, the Missouri native, ex-steamboat pilot, singer songwriter who sounds like he was cut straight from the Townes Van Zandt cloth. His simplistic voice and guitar strumming create a sincere, back yard sound that really enhances his song “Timber Nails and Tears,” serves as a somber longing for something / someone left behind.
His self-titled record was self-recorded in a damp Portland basement studio and was released in February via Mama Bird Recording Company. The debut record serves as a simple, completely stripped-down introduction.
