Abbie Barrett and Biltmore

Doors 6pm

Saturday, May 13th, 2017

Abbie Barrett

That Shame showcases her in full rock mode, sometimes evoking the tone and phrasing of the Pretenders’ Chrissie Hynde...[Her] craftsmanship extends from the gorgeous vocals of “As I Wanted You” and the soaring crescendos of “Falling” to the catchy ’80s-flavored punch of “Take It in Stride.” - Improper Bostonian

Abbie Barrett has been featured on CMT’s Cool Album Cuts, Magnet Magazine, PopMatters, and Performing Songwriter. Last year, Barrett won a Boston Music Award in the category of Best Singer-Songwriter. While she's fueled by a pop-rock dynamism, any preconceived notions of genre or what she "should" be doing have yet to fence her in. She’s less concerned with molding a song into some formula than just letting it be what it wants. The results are exciting, unique, and unpredictable—but always something you can sing along to. Holding it all together is a terrific band, which features some of the Boston area's best musicians.


Biltmore is a new rock band proudly born out of the emerging Providence, RI music scene. Fronted by local music veteran Phil Ayoub, they recorded their debut record Revolutions & Romantics at renowned Q Division Studios in Somerville, MA with incomparable producer Ed Valauskas at the helm. So who do they sound like? According to them, “Coldplay with more guitars. Foo Fighters without the screaming. The Killers, but not as handsome.” According to the venerable Noise Magazine, "Swirly ecstasy rock from Providence, RI…a parade of dark sunshine pop, swoony and delirious, a musical feast. Highly recommended.”
