Ashtyn Barbaree Readies Album for Release

The album Better Luck Next Time will be released Saturday with a show at Fayetteville Public Library. The album will be streaming everywhere starting Jun. 3.

This weekend, Ashtyn Barbaree will release her first full-length album with a show at Fayetteville Public Library. To prepare for the release of "Better Luck Next Time," Ashtyn and bassist Nick Caffrey, pedal steel player Ty Dunn, and guitarist and pianist Jacob Campbell, recently came to the Firmin-Garner Performance Studio to talk about the album and to give us a preview.

Timothy is a life-long Arkansan; he grew up in the hills outside of Winslow and has lived throughout northwest and western Arkansas. As a budding musician in his formative years, he became enthralled with recording technology, which carried over into his collegiate studies of print and multimedia journalism at the University of Arkansas in Fayetteville. Upon receiving his degree in journalism in 2011, Timothy immediately began working as a freelance reporter and photographer for the Washington County Observer in West Fork, Winslow and Greenland. It wasn't long before he left the newspaper business for radio and began working full-time as an announcer and news programmer for KURM AM/FM in Rogers.
