Mojo Barnes


Released December 2017

Signs is a new five-song EP full of reflection from Mojo Barnes. Sometimes he sings, sometimes he raps… Throughout Mojo is a man at a crossroads, questioning the moments that have made him the man he is, laying bare his insecurities and expressing cathartic anger. Opener “Following” is a vengeful number about a missing father, while on “Heartbeat” he considers the possibility of being the father he never had. “OHMYGOD” and “Awakened” speak to the confidence that comes from commanding a crowd from behind the mic. The latter is backed with some lovely guitar work.
