Barak Hill

Hailing from Springfield, Missouri, Barak Hill is an Americana singer-songwriter deeply rooted in folk traditions. His music tells raw, soulful stories of heartbreak, hope, and unwavering resilience. Barak's talents were recognized when he won the American Songwriter Magazine’s 2012 Santa Cruz Guitar Song Contest and was voted one of Southwest Missouri's top three solo musicians by 417 Magazine readers. Influenced by diverse artists like Steve Earle, Gillian Welch, Jason Isbell, and Amos Lee, Barak creates a unique sound that weaves poignant storytelling with unforgettable melodies. His sixth album, "Songs Like Arrows," dropped on June 16th, 2023, featuring tracks born during the pandemic. Amid global lockdowns, Barak's imagination wandered to distant places and untold stories — from Oklahoma highways to the California sun. These songs capture the essence of moving forward, the ache for connection, and the hope that keeps our eyes on the road. "Songs Like Arrows" is a must-listen for fans of authentic Americana. With around 150 shows yearly, Barak's dynamic live performances have graced stages alongside Jay Farrar (Son Volt), Amanda Shires (Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit), and regional legends like Big Smith. Blending originals with a few cherished covers, his shows are a captivating musical journey.
