Isabel and Barry

At WHUP-FM, Hillsborough, NC, January 2024

Isabel and Barry Gray are a duo whose voices blend in harmony and whose guitar styles are perfect complements. Originally drawn together out of their love of acoustic music from the 60s and 70s, they write and perform together. They are currently recording their first project.

Barry’s family band, Graymatter, is a local favorite, performing 60s and 70s covers in four-part harmony. He is also a member of the Wes Collins band (among other distinctions, Wes is a winner of Kerrville’s prestigious Grassy Hills New Folk Competition for Emerging Songwriters). In 2018, Barry was awarded a North Carolina Arts Council Artist Fellowship in Songwriting, which led him to record his debut album, Footsteps. Like Isabel’s albums, it was produced by award-winning musician Jon Shain and engineered by FJ Ventre at Good Luck Studio in Chapel Hill, NC.

New website and more shows coming soon.
