Where people listen
Having marked nearly 30 years as a professional musician, Barry Bales is one of the most in-demand bassists in acoustic music. Drummer Jay Bellerose grew up the last of eight children near Portland, Maine. Inspired in equal measure by old TV clips of Gene Krupa and Lawrence Welk drummer Paul Humphries, Bellerose developed an approach to drumming that is as much informed by texture and melody as by groove. While a student at The Berklee School of Music in Boston, Bellerose had his drum kit stolen, and it is hard to over-estimate the significance of the event on his future artistry: working from a hodge-podge of drums donated by friends, Jay began to discover new sonic possibilities by assembling mismatched kit configurations that varied from song to song, setting battered marching drums and bits of arcane, vaudeville-era hand percussion devices along side more conventional modern drums.
