From the historic Apollo Theater to the open air of Washington Square Park, 5j Barrow has inspired audiences with soulful music, evocative imagery, and lyrics that tug at the heart. Founded by Broadway performers and newlyweds, Eryn Murman and Jason Hite in the fall of 2011 in NYC, 5j Barrow was named "Best Band in NY" after winning The Greene Space WNYC/WQXR's 'Battle of the Boroughs 2014'. They've built a loyal following on the streets of the city and just completed a year-long tour of North America with performances that are both intimate and rousing. 5j Barrow released their debut album From the Dim Sweet Light in 2014, and their first two installments of three upcoming EPs produced by Grammy nominated David Mayfield, were released in October 2017 titled The Journey, Vol. 1 and May 2018 The Journey, Vol. 2. Volume 3 was released in May 2019. While they continue to tour extensively, they are now based out of Asheville, NC.
The Heartstrings Project
The Heartstrings Project began in 2015 as the creative undertaking of the Wygodny Brothers, Luke & Elias. They wanted to create a safe space in New York City for their community of artist friends to connect and explore the ever important question of:
"What tunes your heartstrings?"
The project was originally structured around Elias’ desire to share the benefits of his meditation and yoga practice and Luke’s desire to spread songwriting as a vehicle for creative exploration in a communal setting.
Around 2017, Marina joined the team and the project has been making moves and music ever since. They've toured their music internationally and are continuing to find ways to enrich the global community through music, meditation, and educational works.
With 'heart tuning' in mind, the team is releasing their debut album Shadow People on 12.11.20 under Tiny Room / Ropeadope Records.
