"Hailing from historic Charlottesville, Virginia in 2015, The Barons manage to combine youthful themes of love and fear with their ethereal, booty shakin' rock n’ roll music.
Fresh into their twenties, The Barons are frontman Peyton Alley, lead guitarist Josiah Ragland, drummer Ryan Boone, and bassist Bo Reed. With multiple sold out shows in the US college scenes, headlining 50,000+ festivals, a national headlining US tour and supporting the tours of top Billboard alternative artists (i.e. Judah and the Lion, Catfish and the Bottlemen, Barns Courtney etc.) all behind their back, The Barons have quickly developed their arena potential. Only 7 released singles are currently to the band's name, but there's no question their writing is prep for an LP. Songs like Plane, Rattle, and Hands On really stand out to me as the essence of rock n' roll. Loud guitars that yearn to cut through the road less travelled. And other singles : Mary Anne, Them Pretty Girls, Light Up, and Crown appear as the band's approach to young love. Mary Anne specifically has received the majority of this via national iHeart Radio and college radio play. All of their tunes grasp the art of both rock n' roll and pop music. Rock yet easy enough for your Springsteen mom to swallow. Pop yet just enough for your local virtuoso to tell you it's not sold out. All in all ,
The Barons are Charlottesville, Virginia's most intriguing musical export since the Dave Matthews Band. - Kent Romska (iHeart Radio Executive)"
