Hailing from Forest Gate, Barney Artist paints sounds with his trademark sound of “fluid hip-hop" and even though he's so early in his career has already garnered musical co-signs from the likes of Huw Stephens and Hypetrak.
Regularly collaborating with producers, friends and vocalists – his Soundcloud already boasts tracks featuring efforts from Tom Misch, Alfa Mist, Spacedtime, and Charlie Traplin. Barney has also recently curated and launched his 'Are We Live' podcast with Tom Misch, Jordan Rakei and Alfa Mist; which features informative chat about life as an emerging artist.
Returning this month with close ally Tom Misch, Barney Artist shares a jazz-flecked number, Stay Close. Led by Misch's undeniably infectious production and sublime vocal hooks, Barney waxes lyrical about love and which way to go next.
Listen to Stay Close below, and stay tuned for more on Barney Artist. We have a feeling he'll be sticking about.
