If you live in the District (of Columbia) and have even barely waded into the burgeoning local music scene, then you probably already know the name Sean Barna. Best known for his work behind the drum kit for a multitude of bands, last year Barna packed up and moved to California to pursue other dreams. But, it’s always, always been about the music for him and so eventually he found himself pursuing a new role, that of singer songwriter, with everything he’s got.
Now Barna is back “home”, and ready to take on the world with a new EP of highly personal, highly emotional songs set for release later this year. Kevin sat down with Barna days after his return to talk about what drove him to go for broke and “chase the dream,” what he’s got planned for the future, and why he decided to step out from behind the kit.
Whether you’re a musician, a music-fan, or just a fan of a great chat, this is one you don’t want to miss.
