Barry Locke - He Comes to Me with Trouble

January 22, 2021

Don't ask me why, I have a special relationship with the LGBTQ + community. I don't really know why. I've featured a lot of artists already, like Kevin Atwater, or Reina Mora. My best friend, whom I have known for over 20 years, is gay. In short, in this world which unfortunately still needs to stick labels on people, personally, I believe they inspire me. They are so much more open and so much more sympathetic and above all ... much more authentic.

And when it comes to music and emotions, it brings us to ... masterpieces. Just because they have no barriers, no filters, and everything is natural. I just realized that I started by saying "I don't know why". But in reality, I've just told you why. So I know why, subconsciously. Well, let's talk about the song, now, haha. This song is a bit like a surprise cone. The more we advance, the more we discover. And the more we discover, the more we love.

It's true that we could put this song in the best indie folk gems section. But please have a listen entirely, and you will be very surprised by the final part of the track.

It turns to become a huge rock anthem. A very explosive part, with wonderful vocal flights. Exactly what gives you chills in less than a second, and of course, exactly what we love at IMC. You've been warned: the emotional wave is huge!

Included in our "Indie Folk" playlist, and of course, you will now hear this amazing track on the Indie Music Radio.

Barry Locke's point of view :

In short, this track is about my relationship of 15 years and how that fated first meeting spelled trouble looming as I would have to contend with my own inner turmoil. Love comes in all forms and even though this new love of mine threatened to be ruinous, I followed anyway...and now here we are, still together and still very much in love, regardless of how the past 15 years have shaped us, jaded us, changed us. We believe we were always supposed to meet.
