Caught in a phase

 
 
 
 

Dollie Barnes

 

Dollie Barnes, hailing from Houston, mixes pop sensibilities with dream like vocals into a pot of 60’s and 70’s inspired writing while still maintaining a sound that is all it’s own, grabbing hold of the listener from the first note.  Their debut album, "Caught in a Phase" was self-released on vinyl February 2017 - you can purchase the LP at The What of Whom  and stream on Bandcamp, iTunes and Spotify!

 

Members include: Dollie Barnes, Tom Lynch, Austin Sepulvado, Jason Willis, Marshall Graves and Gus Alvarado

 

PRESS

"The Dollie Barnes sound is hard to describe not unlike her signature voice. Singer-songwriter John Evans said it best when he told me that her voice only works for her, and no one else could have her sound. Because I’ve been lucky enough to be around Barnes, I’ve gotten to see that she’s a savvy, intriguing, and multi-layered individual who just happens to be one of the most engaging artists I’ve seen in a good while."
- David Garrick of Free Press Houston

 

"Over the past year or so, Dollie Barnes — and front woman Haley Barnes in particular — has begun asserting itself as one of the most promising bands in town. Barnes, the woman (Dollie is a family nickname), was already well-known to Houston audiences from her work in Buxton and Ancient Cat Society; a detour to Baylor University gave her the time and space to develop as a songwriter skilled at mingling mystery and melancholy a la Stevie Nicks. Barnes, the local indie-pop band, also includes two members of Buxton and two guys from Robert Ellis’ band, plus Barnes’ fiance Tom Lynch, whom she and several bandmates join in aesthetically similar Houston outfit Vodi. (Must make putting together shows a lot easier.) Earlier this month, the band — Dollie Barnes, just to keep you on track — released the single “Taking All Day,” a wistful and hummable track that prefaces their forthcoming debut album Caught In a Phase."
- Chris Gray of Houston Press
