Boy In A Boat is an old-school masterpiece: 10 tracks and the length of a vinyl LP. It’s a lovingly-crafted, exquisitely executed offering to the world of richly organic music-making and finely-chiselled songs from an artist who has distilled and self-edited in a way that few others take the time or get the chance to do. Every note and every word counts. Songs now frozen in glorious amber on Boy In A Boat have already been covered on record by other artists, as were all of the songs on its predecessor. Barry Kerr’s music has already passed muster with his peers; Boy In A Boat is where the world finally gets to see and hear how Barry Kerr passes muster as an artist.
