In the Get to know our Coaches feature we have our coaches share a bit more about themselves, their experience in the music industry, what inspires them and what interests they have outside of music.
Today we have the
multi-instrumental coach Kyle Barr.
Favourite three Albums?
Horizons - Parkway Drive
Never Take Friendship Personal - Anberlin
That's The Spirit - Bring Me The Horizon
Best live show you have attended?
Alice Cooper in support of Motley Crue on their final tour. The musicianship and prowess of all the musicians pushes me to aspire to become a session musician.
What is your career highlight?
Being on a week-long tour of japan. We played four sold out shows in three major cities and the reception was unbelievable.
Who inspires you?
Ted Kirkpatrick (Tourniquet) whose playing philosophy is to treat the drums like a musical instrument, not just a noisy timekeeper. Also; Danny Carey, Chad Smith, Brad Wilks and Matt Cameron
Name a song that is your guilty pleasure?
All Too Well - Taylor Swift, actually there's quite a few Tay-Tay songs but shhh.
Interests and hobbies apart from music?
Is there life outside of music? I like being out in nature, the beach, bush walks etc. and I am an avid Sydney Swans supporter.
What's you hidden talent?
I love organic/analytical chemistry and have a degree in Forensic Science.
