From the moment she steps into the spotlight and begins picking her banjo – her dad’s 1972 Gibson Mastertone, to be exact – it’s undeniable that being on stage is where Lockwood Barr feels most at home. “She has the goods,” writes Music Row Magazine about her captivating vocals. “Extremely promising.”

The Tiburon, California native credits her successes thus far, which include Country Music Association Emerging Artist recognition and winning an Independent Country Music Association Award as banjo player for bluegrass group The Nashvegas Ramblers, to fearless pursuit of her passions. That, and her incredibly tight-knit musical family.

“My dad always says that he knew he wanted to marry my mother when he walked into her apartment and saw a banjo sitting there,” smiles Lockwood. Music is a way of life for the Barr family. With a sister who grew up singing alongside her in church choir, a mother who once shared the stage with Grammy-winner John Hartford and a cousin who is the lead man for the Celtic punk band Dropkick Murphys, this multi-instrumentalist is hard-pressed to remember a time in her youth where she wasn’t around music.

Wild Couch plays fun, fast folk. It's down home, but with a glint of chrome: 3-part harmony and distorted banjo; acoustic guitar and heavy metal drumming; heartbreaking ballads and dumb puns. It's weird if you ever ask "what" or "why", but that's rarely the way to a good time. Come have fun.
