Nicholas Barron Band has been performing together for more than fifteen years under a variety of names but with the same core players — drummer Steve Gillis, keyboardist Vijay Tellis Nayak and bassist Shawn Sommer. In the spring of 2008, Steve and Vijay opened Transient Sound Studios on Chicago’s north side. Candyrat Records owner Rob Poland was looking for the next Nicholas Barron record, and after hearing the band knew that this musical telepathy had to be captured on record. In the Summer of 2008, they recorded the session you now hold in your hands, playing only one or two takes per song.
Live in Transient Sound combines Nicholas’ love of the blues, passion for lyricism, and subtlety of the ballad with the rich audio atmosphere of the live room at Transient Sound. While his undeniable and original voice is showcased front and center, the strength of the recording is in the notable synergy that occurs between the players in the live studio setting. It is clear that these musicians share some history. Look for more exciting work in the years to come, both from Transient Sound and The Nicholas Barron Band.
