Ever wished you could get backstage with your favourite artist? This #BarbourIntSummer we’re giving you a glimpse into the lives of four handpicked musicians who embody the independence and style of Barbour International.
Discover the artists below who we’ll be taking you #OnTheRoad with, where you can expect behind-the-scenes access into their shows and festivals around the UK this summer...
Rose wears the B.Intl Tain Wax Jacket & Wax Baker Boy Hat
First up is Rose Gray, a brand new English singer/songwriter from East London, who was brought up in a family full of creatives. She grew up listening to the 'music greats'; Dusty Springfield, The Carpenters, Shirley Bassey, Amy Winehouse, Massive Attack, and from each she draws inspiration.
Rose attended the Brit School when she was 16, and while there met Alan Nglish who she’s been working with since. Together they have developed a sound that epitomises all Rose stands for: soulful, free-spirited and timeless, key representations of the Barbour International brand.
Rose recently released single 'Morning Blues' which you can watch here and is now getting ready to release her debut EP.

Next up is White Lies – the British band behind anthemic hits including 'Unfinished Business', 'Death' and more recently 'Take It Out On Me’. They are no strangers to being #OnTheRoad.
It’s been close to a decade since White Lies released their iconic, number 1 album “To Lose My Life” and three albums later, the band have played at some of the biggest festivals in the world; including Glastonbury and Coachella. They also supported Muse on a stadium tour.
White Lies have a packed schedule this summer, including playing at the British Summer Time Festival in Hyde Park with The Killers, and a further sold out headline show in Brighton in July. We’ll be following them for our #BarbourIntSummer campaign, giving you an exclusive glimpse into their lives behind the scenes on @barbourinternational.
Rose wears the B.Intl Durness Casual Jacket
Next up is Earl, a stunning new jazz musician and bewitching vocalist. Earl is an Alaskan-born Londoner (via Los Angeles), and she has played the 2017 Cheltenham Jazz Festival and toured through March and April with reborn No.1 album artist Rick Astley, which included a mesmerising performance at The Royal Albert Hall. “An utter milestone for me”.
Earl’s debut jazz album, Tongue-Tied, is out July 28th and features a cover image taken by her friend, Bryan Adams. Watch the video to the current single 'Baddabing Badaboom'.
Earl is going to be playing a headline show at The Courtyard Theatre in London on June 14th and we’ll be joining her behind the scenes. Follow us on @BarbourInternational channels for the first look.
Youngr wears our B.Intl Hyatt Overshirt in Charcoal
Fresh off the back of his first sold-out North American Tour, including dates at South By Southwest (SXSW) and Ultra Music Festival, Dario Darnell aka Youngr is joining us for #BarbourIntSummer as he takes his live show to over 30 festivals this summer.
Music has always been in Youngr’s blood, quite literally; his Dad is August Darnell aka Kid Creole. It’s been less than 12 months since Youngr went viral with his self-released edgy pop-infused debut single ‘Out Of My System’, which now stands at over 21 million streams on Spotify. This year alone, Youngr has already sold out tours across both Europe and North America, and released his latest single 'Monsters'.
We’ll be joining Youngr #OnTheRoad throughout the festival season including spots at Barn on the Farm and Latitude Festival as part of #BarbourIntSummer
