“Digger Barnes is a ramblin’ troubadour. His songs are dark portrayals of outlaws, criminals and suicides. Influenced by early roots music, murderballads and gospel tunes he creates his own ghostly universe that could be described best as gothic americana or country noir.
Digger works also as a studio/touring musician and shared stages with Chuck Ragan (Hot Water Music), Tim Barry (Avail), Tom Gabel (Against Me), Ben Nichols (Lucero), Jim Ward (At The Drive-In), Joey Cape (Lagwagon), Austin Lucas, Jon Snodgrass, Frank Turner and many more. Together with visual artist Pencil Quincy he runs the Hamburg/Germany based label BARNES & QUINCY.”
