Barela has built a loyal following in Southern California for their exciting performances. Tight, soulful R&B is the order of the day when Barela takes the stage, and their new release CAN YOU EVER THINK highlights the fine musicians and vocalists that fans have come to love. Featuring a five-piece horn section, Barela lays down some strong grooves with creative arrangements and soulful vocals. It takes a special dedication to keep a large band vibrant and exciting for over twenty years, and their commitment has paid off.
CAN YOU EVER THINK includes a cover of "Willing to Learn" by Tower of Power and Barela does a nice job of covering this beautiful classic, bringing their own style while still honoring the original. The remaining eight songs on the CD were penned by Barela members, including a tribute to Tower of Power called "Tower Pops".
A great collection of R&B from a talented band. Check out CAN YOU EVER THINK for yourself.
