"Hailing from historic Charlottesville, Virginia in 2016, The Barons confront youthful themes of love and fear into their ethereal, booty shakin' rock n’ roll music.
Fresh into their twenties, The Barons are frontman Peyton Alley, lead guitarist Josiah Ragland, bassist Bowen Reed, and drummer Maxx Turner. With extensive touring in the US college circuit and supporting the tours of top Billboard artists (i.e. Judah and the Lion, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Barns Courtney, The Aces, etc.) behind their back, The Barons have quickly developed their arena potential. Their art shines through 10 singles that are currently released to the band's name and there's no question their writing is prep for a full-length. The band manages to intertwine intricate time signatures with heavy pop in their tunes such as “Tell Me (There’s No One But You)” and “Heat.” while holding onto their straight forward rock n’ roll roots in tunes such as “Plane” and “Hands On” that represent their journeys on tour through the road less travelled. Each song the band has released remains versatile in their ‘genre placement’ making the band’s writing and live shows that much more intriguing.”
