“David Barrett is the leader of DB3, an instrumental band. Making a success out of an instrumental group is not easy,

but David has a knack of writing very memorable progressive rock tunes.

He is also blessed with the ability to deliver these tunes in a unique way using his collection of electric and acoustic instruments. Couple this with an impressive collection of amps & effects David manages to colour and texture his compositions with lasting impact. David is a rare combination of imagination, dedication and raw talent.” – Terry Brown, producer.

A Canadian composer and performer, specializing in his own brand of instrumental progressive rock, David Barrett has been featured in international magazines including Guitar Player, Premier Guitar, and Vintage Guitar.

In 2010, David Barrett founded the David Barrett Trio, an instrumental progressive rock power trio. Their debut album was produced by Alex Lifeson (Rush), Alan Parsons (Pink Floyd), and Richard Chycki (Dream Theater). They followed that release with the album David Barrett Trio II, the live concert DVD, A Whisper To Thunder, and an EP produced by Terry Brown (Rush), featuring vocalist Michael Sadler (Saga). David continues to work with Terry Brown conducting recording master classes, and producing collaborations with such acclaimed Canadian musicians as Jacob Moon, and the upcoming Canadian power duo Crown Lands.

In addition to DB3, David Barrett has released a dozen solo albums, featuring acoustic, electric, classical, mandolin, laud, and steel guitar. David performs solo concerts in North America, and conducts guitar retreats at Chalet Studio in Ontario, Canada, and Sotuta de Peon, Yucatan, Mexico.

David is an endorsing artist for innovative companies such as Dagmar Customs Guitars, Mack Guitar Amplifiers, Pigtronix Futuristic Audio Technology, and D’Addario Canada.

Please check out the David Barrett Trio discography, including the new track Beneath The Desert, produced by Terry Brown feat. Crown Lands, streaming now, on Apple Music and Spotify.
