Hook & Bullet is made up of Audrey and James Barnes. Based in the Shenandoah Valley, we hail from Wilkes Co., North Carolina – the land of Doc Watson and NASCAR.

We don’t like boxes. But if you put us in a box, we’d prefer a big one. Call us what you will…. americana, indy folk, roots, or just an old-fashioned, new-time banjo and drum band.

Our music resides in this sweet tension between old and new, between heartbreak and redemption, between creation and destruction. Give us a listen and tell us what you think. We’d love to hear from you!
