With new songs to share, Del is back on the road reconnecting with fans across North America touring his new album 'Easy Keeper', released on September 20, 2019 with acronym Records.
An Americana opus that was four years in the making, the new record was produced by Barber and Grant Siemens ( Corb Lund / Tom Russel l) and mixed by Scott Franchuk ( Corb Lund / Romi Mayes ). A hauntingly personal and celebratory collection of songs, Easy Keeper weaves variations of roots and folk music into a revelatory listen. With songs like “No Easy Way Out” and “Louise” that highlight Barber’s incredible storytelling - this record is a testament to how he moulds his empathetic creative process.
Primarily recorded in Manitoba, and featuring top Canadian talent, the album takes its name from what farmers describe as animals that are literally - easy to keep. “ An ‘Easy Keeper’ is what I realized I wasn't enough of... moreover it is exactly how I wanted others to describe me,” says Barber.
