The Cloning World CD released 2003
Music and song writing for me started in high school. https://youtu.be/QYCotPJ2fhk , Singing in choirs and playing piano as a kid, my music endeavors continued with me through my 5 yr Air Force Tour in England in the '90s.
During my service in USAF/Desert Storm 1988-1991, I played in a fun party band called Departure. Can you make out the red leopard skin pants in the photos below? After returning home and eventually founding my own electronic company, I worked in various video-related electronic jobs while raising my family and playing in one band or another. Tom Barrette Live!, Bottom Line, and Reelin' in the Years were a few of the show names. My solo performances continued, mostly playing classic rock piano in various bars and restaurants. I finished my solo album "The Cloning World," an all original collection, in 2003. This year, Reelin' in the Years has been re-invented to become my newest project and we have some of the best musicians I have ever played with. Funk and Dance, here we come!
