5J Barrow draws inspiration from the Greenwich Village revival scene of the 1950s and 60s to fuse music and storytelling in a joyous sound. (BAM Cafe Live).

Despite their earthy, folk rock genre, 5j Barrow had the stage floor shaking with every jump and stomp. (Substruct Live, Marielle Torrefranca)

From the historic Apollo Theater to the open air of Washington Square Park, 5j Barrow has inspired audiences with soulful music, evocative imagery, and lyrics that tug at the heart. Founded by Eryn Murman and Jason Hite in the fall of 2011, 5j Barrow was named “Best Band in NY” after winning The Greene Space WNYC/WQXR’s ‘Battle of the Boroughs 2014’. They have built a loyal following on the streets of the city and engaged audiences in the heartland with performances that are both intimate and rousing. 5j Barrow released their debut album From the Dim Sweet Light in 2014, and their second full-length album produced by Grammy nominated producer, David Mayfield, is due to be released in the fall of 2017.
