Hey Little Miss you Can't Go Wrong with Chris Barron, Lead Singer of the Spin Doctors!
Come catch Chris Barron and see what he's been up to with his solo career - The New York songwriter is no longer the debutant who set out on the circuits sharp end in 1988 with $100, a battered acoustic and a headful of the alt-rock anthems that would elevate Spin Doctors to global stardom. Hes a veteran approaching 50, living in a world changed beyond recognition, compelled to write the music that chronicles the here-and-now. As far back as he can remember, hes had a hunger driving him onward, towards something just out of reach. In 2017, it propels him to Angels and One-Armed Jugglers (due out October 20 on Chrysanthemum Records), the culmination of a lifetimes craft and a record both contemporary and classic.
