GB Roots is the powerful collaboration of guitarist/banjo player Dave Barber and bassist Kirby Green. Together the two musicians create an organic blend of rich duo vocals, heavy modern blues-rock with a hint of haunting banjo. Growing up in separate ends of Western Canada (BC and SK) Dave and Kirby began collaborating while studying music at Grant MacEwan University in Edmonton.
For the past few years they’ve been songwriting, recording and performing as GB Roots throughout Canada. Their debut album “The Key” was released in March of 2012 and recorded at the legendary Warehouse Studio in Vancouver, BC owned by Bryan Adams. They had the opportunity to work with an incredible engineer/co-producer Eric Mosher, and immensely talented musicians Jerry Adolphe and Tyson Naylor. The album is an organic blend of the sound where the name GB Roots is derived from (Green/Barber roots).
