Second Quarter 2023

Welcome old friends and new visitors!

April 2023

Wally’s NEW Single, “Heart Condition”, released April 24, 2023 to nearly 500 radio stations across the United States. Available for digital download through CD Baby and many other platforms. Thank you Programmers for the spins! 🙂

WALLY BARNICK has a “Heart Condition, but it only kicks in when a certain woman walks by. According to Barnick, “my new single ‘Heart Condition’ features some great musicians, a catchy melody and in the end it’s an upbeat love song—so turn off the news and get up & dance!”

Since 1975, Wally Barnick has been a member of the well-known California urban-bluegrass group The Cache Valley Drifters,and most recently has joined forces with flat-picking pioneer and guitar-master Dan Crary and banjo-force Bill Evans. Together they are Crary, Evans and Barnick. “Heart Condition” is the followup to his 2020 album, Wally Barnick & The Trailboss Troubadors and his 2022 album release, NEW Road.

Wally’s style and genre are solidly American music, ranging anywhere from Bakersfield country to rock & roll to folk and bluegrass. His bass playing and vocals, whether in the lead role or in support have, for more than 50 years proven themselves worthy of his spot on the bandstand.

Musicians On “Heart Condition
Wally Barnick: vocals, Kenny Blackwell: slide guitar, Tom Lackner: drums, David West: upright bass, piano, organ, electric rhythm guitar and acoustic rhythm guitar.

Recorded at: The Million Cellar, Santa Barbara, CA. Produced, Arranged and Engineered by David West for Play Ball! Musical Services.

Cover art by Bill Griffin.

Great Things Ahead in 2020!

Happy New Year Friends! So glad we made it, as the song goes.

Two terrific things have already occurred, this first being the release of my second SOLO album Wally Barnick and The Trail Boss Troubadors, which was released on October 11, 2019.

Thank You Everyone who has purchased the album/cd, and to all of my friends in RADIO who are playing tracks from the album on your programs. There are too many of you to list at this posting but I will get that posting up and out soon.

The second cool thing is… my band mates Dan Crary and Bill Evans and I (Crary, Evans and Barnick) completed our first album Prime Time and it is scheduled for delivery on January 14, 2020. Three years in the making and we are very pleased with the results and we certainly hope that you will be too!

Visit the MERCHANTILE page here in the site to see how to order your copy.

We’ll be in the Pacific Northwest in late January, over in New Mexico and Colorado in April and off to the Walnut Valley Music Festival  in Winfield, Kansas in September. In between all of that we’ll have some Northern and Southern California dates added to the schedule… out promoting the album and playing some great music along the way.

Please make frequent visits to my GIGS page here on the sight to remain informed as to our whereabouts.

I am and we are grateful for your friendship. Thanks for being along on the ride and we hope to see you soon!

On October 11, 2019 the manufacturer delivered 1000 copies of the NEW cd Wally Barnick And The Trail Boss Troubadors.

I am very pleased with the results of the skills and hard work that my wife Nola applied to cause my vision for the packaging to become reality.

And I am just as pleased with the audio content, the 13 tracks, having been co-produced by myself and long-time musical associate and friend David West.

I am grateful to ALL of the songwriters, musicians and singers for their gifts and their generosity.

Seriously… secure a copy of the cd. I’ll even offer a FULL REFUND if you can’t find something joyful or redeeming in this music.

If we were still in the era of “major record labels” (they are mostly non-existent now) the song and accompanying video included below would most likely be released as a “single”.

This is track #3 Through The Eyes Of Children.

Please have a look and listen.

And please, visit the MERCANTILE AND SAMPLES here on the site to place your order.

Cheers and much love. Wally
