A startling young talent, Barny Fletcher's debut single 'Christ Flow' began his 2019 with a bang ("well, this is exciting...brilliantly chaotic", i-D).+
At just 20 years old, Barny was born in the unlikely setting of future-stardom, Somerset, to a photographer father, filmmaker mother and a house crammed full of music.
His early record collection ranged from the storytelling of Rodriguez and the skits of old-school Eminem to avant-garde humourists Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band - all of which, in its own way, informs Barny's brilliantly refreshing twist on classic hip-hop, vintage soul, and killer pop hooks. Already working on new music with the likes of DJ Shadow, Ratboy, Cadenza and Paul White, Barny writes songs about - but not limited to - "Love. Hate. Girls. Holidays. Water. Octopus. Giraffe Coats. Whatever I feel like, there are no rules or regulations."
Full of energy, ideas, and embracing the unpredictability of the everyday, Barny Fletcher - says High Snobiety - is "ready to blow.”Close
The once definite borders between hip-hop, pop, and RnB have never been so blurred, and Barny Fletcher looks to be the next artist to warmly embrace free movement between genres.
