Barry Peelen on SoundBetter

I'm a 24-year-old graduate student, poet, & singer-songwriter who traffics in indie-pop/folk rock music. I've been writing songs since I was around 19, & focus primarily on creating songs with strong lyrics, grabby hooks & catchy melodies.

I consider James Taylor, Bob Dylan, John Mayer, Jim Croce, and Ben Howard to have all had major influences over my musical style, both melodically and lyrically.

Example lyrics from my song, The Girl Without a Name:

Oh, I can taste your breathing
Plastic liquor, purple haze
You’ll mouth the words
For what you’re needing
Fly a taxi to your place, we’ll

Lay me down
Feel me out

Think I need somebody,
Anybody’s good enough for now

Cause we’re trying just to get as far as we can go
From the lonely place
So tired of the only thing we’ve known
She’s the girl without a name (oh’s x3)
She’s the girl without a name

Oh, what’s the point of dreaming?
Smear your makeup, kill your drink
And act like you prefer deceiving
Baby never feels a thing

Just lay me down
Feel me out

Cause we both need somebody
Anybody’s good enough for now

Cause we’re trying
Just to get as far as we can go
From the lonely place
Both tired of the only thing we’ve known
She’s the girl without a name (oh’s x 3)
She’s the girl without a name
