We are friends with a young singer, Jeannine Barry, on her Facebook page. Her home is in the United Kingdom and we recently asked her why she wants to come to Nashville. First we want to tell you a bit about this young lady, then we will list her three reasons of why she wants to come to Nashville from her home in London.
This London based Country/Pop singer is currently working on her debut EP which will be released in October 2013. She has a passion for music which has taken her to many different places, one of which was Berlin. That is where Jeannine met her vocal coach David Lee Brewer (who has worked with artists such as Beyonce Knowles). It is David’s belief in her abilities and bright future which gave Jeannine confidence as she started studying with him and became part of his Masterclass. Jeannine has performed regularly, plus she recorded a demo for Sony BMG Munich, started writing her own material and worked with several producers. A personal highlight for her was when she was able to perform her own version of ‘Amazing Grace’ with the Philharmonic Orchestra in the Berlin Philharmonic in front of an audience of 2000.
Now she records at Gadget Studios and performs all across London. Having recently come back from a mini-tour in Canada, she will be supporting Mark Morriss (former Bluetones) on October 5th at Jamm in Brixton. She has been invited to showcase her talent at the songwriters night (10th Nov, Bush Hall, London) in collaboration with Country2Country, among others, which will be reviewed by the Maverick Magazine (which is said to be the UK’s leading independent country music magazine).
Then on the 19th of October, Jeannine will be performing at the biggest country music venue in Europe, which is the ‘Fort San Antone’. We looked on the website for this event and found this information:

Leave us notes in the comment section please, and let’s invite Jeannine Barry to visit Nashville, Tennessee, Music City USA!
Reason 1: I have always dreamed of going to the US and I would love to see Nashville in particular because of the Country Music that it is famous for. It would be an amazing experience which I would hope I get the chance to experience not just once only.
Reason 2: I want to perform at the great venues in Nashville and be able to showcase my music to gain new fans there. I’d like to tour in the US.
I have a lot of friends from Nashville on my page who are all asking when I’ll be coming to the US. I do hear that it’s very interesting to them to hear a United Kingdom Country Singer. There is a small market for country music in the UK. I am working on expanding that market, at the moment. I hope my music will be well received in Nashville.
Reason 3: I would like to work with fabulous Country songwriters and where better to go than Nashville?
I love songwriting and it would be great to work with other Country Artists.
