DUOTONE is the name under which Barney Morse-Brown (cellist for multi-platinum artist Birdy, the Imagined Village & Chris Wood's, Handmade Life,) writes and performs his own contemporary acoustic songs. He loops guitars and cellos, percussion and voices to create ethereal sound-scapes for his poignant lyrics to weave in and out of.
Following some hugely successful festival appearances, at End Of The Road Festival and Green Man two name but two DUOTONE has become a popular live booking through-out the UK mesmerising audiences all around the country with his very unique shows, breathlessly moving from riotous energy all the way down to the most delicate and heartfelt moments of beauty and intimacy. Barney possess a unique quality that will one minute have a crowd on their feet, seconds later the audience will wait, held by the moment waiting for a pin to drop.
Coming from a musical family of seven children, Barney's passion for performance was established early on, studying at The Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama, he was awarded a scholarship to study Baroque cello at The Royal College Of Music. The cello has, to date, played a pivotal role in Barney's life starting at the age of six progressing through school, studying at the Royal Welsh College of Music & Drama in Cardiff, receiving a scholarship to study baroque cello at the Royal College of Music, London to building a career that has already seen him performing around the world with some of the great artists of our time as already mentioned, Birdy, Chris Wood and Imagined Village as well as Eliza Carthy and many others. It is this environment that Barney has immersed himself in that has helped him to create a sound that challenges convention, - whilst demonstrating the versatility of the cello by making it the lead instrument in the band.
