Artist bio

Barbarossa ('Red Beard in Italian) is the alter-ego of London based singer-songwriter James Mathe - a man blessed with an incredibly emotive voice, yet cursed with a (well-trimmed) fiery-ginger beard.

Barbarossa first came to the attention of Fence Records in 2004, with a 3 track EP produced by ADEM (Domino Records) - and he has since released a mini-album (entitled Sea Like Blood) as part of the Collectives 'Picket Fence series.
