Barny Fletcher

(United Kingdom)


A startling young talent, Barny Fletcher’s debut single ‘Christ Flow’ began his 2019 with a bang. At just 20 years old, Barny was born in the unlikely setting of future-stardom, Somerset, to a photographer father, filmmaker mother and a house crammed full of music. His early record collection ranged from the storytelling of Rodriguez and the skits of old-school Eminem to avant-garde humourists Bonzo Dog Doo-Dah Band – all of which, in its own way, informs Barny’s brilliantly refreshing twist on classic hip-hop, vintage soul, and killer pop hooks. Already working on new music with the likes of DJ Shadow, Ratboy, Cadenza and Paul White, Barny writes songs about – but not limited to – “Love. Hate. Girls. Holidays. Water. Octopus. Giraffe Coats. Whatever I feel like, there are no rules or regulations.” Full of energy, ideas, and embracing the unpredictability of the everyday, Barny Fletcher – says High Snobiety – is “ready to blow.”
