Denver Music Scene Welcomes Young Musician

Musician takes Colorado by a Storm

Online PR News – 07-January-2010 – – DENVER, Colo. – Barrett Buscher’s first live performance was at the Red Lion in Vail when he was 11-years old, now he is opening for local bands such as Keith Anderson. At 15-years old Barrett has begun to make a name for himself in Denver.

After a day of skiing in Vail, April 2007, Barrett and his family attended the legendary Red Lion restaurant and nightclub. He got on stage and surprised the crowd with a song he’d written himself. The song written about the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq called “War Ain’t the Answer” spurred the creation of the non-partisan, non-profit Project Save our Soldiers to raise money for veterans of those wars.

Now Barrett is all about the music. A sophomore attending a local high school, he spends his time the way most kids do; friends, school snowboarding and family. But on the weekends instead of going to concerts, he performs.

“I love to write and play music - it’s how I express myself. It’s a great experience to be up on stage and people are connecting with my music”, said Barrett.

Barrett’s latest local performance was at the Toad Tavern in Littleton at the end of December. You can visit to view all of Barrett’s music.
