When talking about Barfield, the Tyrant, everything starts with Barfield, the man. Mike Barfield, the southern gentleman of Texas soul, is one of the most exciting front men on any scene today. Sixty four years old and straight out of a long tradition of gulf coast entertainers, Barfield is a must see live show. Imagine James Brown meets Johnny Cash fronting a very Texan version of the Clash.

With the release of their latest EP, Barfield and musician partner Johnny Moeller (Fabulous Thunderbirds) blend all kinds of rootsy goodness in their own very Texan way. 

With a long standing residency at Austin's famed Continental Club, they have honed a most exciting mix of funk and garage soul with a psychedelic twist.  The 2nd and 3rd paragraphs should tell your story.
