Jesse Barnett (Stick To Your Guns) Releases New EP From His Wish You Were Here Project

Jesse Barnett (Stick To Your Guns) has released a new EP from his Wish You Were Here project titled “I’m Afraid Of Everything.” You can purchase the effort HERE and check out an official video for the song “Christmas Creek” below:

Barnett said the following about the new record:

“I had a hard time learning how to navigate between normal life and tour life. My long term relationship was ending, and I was getting frustrated with being in a band because I blamed touring for not being able to make my relationship work. You can plan your whole life but it can be completely uprooted. I needed something to make sense of everything that was happening.”

“I grew up in a family that just really appreciated good music, so stuff like Paul Simon, James Taylor, and Bill Withers was always playing around the house. I didn’t find punk and hardcore until high school, but I was already playing acoustic guitar and singing, so that kind of music is actually closer to my musical ‘origin story’ than punk.”

He also added the following about “Christmas Creek”:

“A few days before Christmas in 2017 I was living alone in Montreal. I got a call from my mother and she had let me know about an overdose in my family. I didn’t really have much to say. After we hung up immediately wrote this song. This song is for Nick.”
