Celebrity Ireland presents Barry Walsh, a twenty year old Dublin born singer/songwriter who has taken on the Irish music circuit by storm. Barry is a naturally talented, hard working musician who performs reguarly in venues such as Vicar Street, Tripod, The Village, and The Academy.
His gentle character and confidence, drive and enthusiasm, is what makes Barry a wonderful artist to work with musically. He never rests and when he does manage to get some time off to relax, he spends it writing fresh, original, exciting and spirit rendering songs that are catchy, vibrant, upbeat and memorable.
Striving to better himself by always giving 110% in projects that require a level head and the ability to reach deadlines, Barry has what it takes to be a huge success, as he tends to work even better under pressure.
Barry eats, sleeps and breathes music. When driving his classic 74 Triumph Stag, or simply eating his dinner, he cannot help but create melodies and new ideas that are generating constantly in his mind. For Barry is a true artist in every sense of the word and is now ready to share his thoughts and experience with a wider audience in need of real, meaningful songs.
His writing technique is simple. Barry lets the music and lyrics flow until he captures what he is looking for. Barry is humble and is always willing to learn off other musicians, whether they are already famous, or busking on Grafton Street. Barry regularly freqents music venues in a relentless campaign of search and devour, knowing that meeting like-minded individuals means learning more about music and himself.
"I work to be the best that I can be and I won't settle for anything less. I will play every pub, club and event to get my name well known on the gigging circuit. My goal is to be a full time musician and to be honest with you, when I set my targets I set them high. I take a lot of inspiration from other musicians and when I chat to bands and solo artists I'm like a sponge just trying to absorb all the information I can. I really believe you never stop learning."
