James Barker Band was excited to release their sophomore EP, Singles Only. The EP is now available through Universal Music Canada. The seven-track EP is set to include their anthemic love song, “Good Together” which was the most spun Canadian Country song in 2018 at Country radio. The EP will also feature their latest single “Keep It Simple” which is the most streamed domestic song in country music so far this year.
James Barker Band has also just released the video for a brand new track, “There’s A Drink For That,” which premiered exclusively on Billboard, commenting on the track specifically, “hand snapped rhythms, sunny guitar parts and a sing-along chorus make “There’s a Drink For That” the ideal song for the live setting.”
Talking about Singles Only, the band comments,
“It feels like our sound has matured, but it still stays true to what we want. Whether it be our traditional country influences, our pop influences, or anything in between, it’s still just has that James Barker Band stamp on it that we hope all of our fans are gonna be really excited about.”

Music has touched my soul since day one. Whether it is performing or sitting down with some of the biggest names in music, I can always be found sharing my profoundly tender affection of music with anyone who will listen. Being a music journalist has allowed me to expand my knowledge of music and interact with some of my biggest childhood heroes. From days of radio broadcasting to sitting back, kicking off my cowboy boots and sharing my adventures with likeminded music fans online has been nothing short of amazing. Canada is full of true musical talent and I look forward to continuing to share my adventures in music with you.
