Barry Jay Hughes Update Feb 2019

Hi everyone, sorry it’s been so long since I’ve posted here. Things have been hectic but I’ve now managed to create some space in the schedule to update you regularly from now on.
So you may have heard that my new single “Diving In” was released on January 28th. It was received well by you guys and thank you so much for the positive feedback on the song.

“Diving In” picks up where “Tried & Treasured” (2016 release) left off, and brings the mystical folk sound to a new level. It’s a love song of sorts and it asks the listener how far are they willing to go for those they fall for. Yeah, it’s pretty deep. Sorry.

I’m really excited to bring you more new music very soon and frequently throughout 2019. The next single is called “Replace” and if you’ve heard me perform live in the last number of years you may have heard this song. Martin O’Neill, my producer, and I, have brought this song in a new direction and have come up with a new arrangement which I hope you will like.

My youtube channel has a brand spanking new video for the ‘Diving In” single, edited and produced by the lads at Clifford Clifford Productions. Click here to watch it!
