During his college days, Barker became interested in the finger-style guitar playing of John Fahey and Bert Jansch and began to record under the name Currituck County. This solo project (sometimes a duo with Vetiver/Espers drummer Otto Hauser) recorded albums for Teenbeat Records, Troubleman Unlimited and the UK's Track and Field Organisation. Now Barker has assembled an unbelievable group of musicians for You & Me. Produced by Thom Monahan, the album features Pat Sansone, Joanna Newsom, Jonathan Wilson, Eric Johnson and Otto Hauser. Full of sunny, rural country rock, You & Me recalls the rustic grooves of The Band and The Grateful Dead, the heady melancholy of Roy Harper and the golden harmonies of CSNY.
