2017 saw the addition of The Other Favorites' Carson McKee. He contributed "The Levee" and "Flower In The City" to the group's follow-up, Armed & Dangerous. As a trio, Barrick, Turner, and McKee produced intricate harmony arrangements over traditionally-inspired folk stylings. Armed & Dangerous saw their greatest success yet.
That success, though, was cut short when creative differences and personal ventures instigated a split. Turner and McKee returned to The Other Favorites while Barrick kickstarted a solo career. To date, The Other Favorites released their Fools EP in Summer 2017. Bob Barrick is due to release his debut EP in Fall 2017.
