Barley formed in 2009 at the house of Jason Carver in sunny Southern California. Following an afternoon of BBQ & Brew, a guitar made its way into the hands of the songwriter and, as if naturally, master vocalist Brent Reger began singing along with gloriously melodic styling to the strums of his long time friend. Humbled, Jason suggested a local showcase to his friend, and Barley was born. To prepare for the upcoming, and now infamous, June 13th show at Suzy's Bar N' Grill in Hermosa Beach, the duo recruited South Bay Drummer Chris Shea and Philly Keyboardist Mike Morano to round out the band's early lineup.

The immediate success of the band lured the ever elusive guitarist, Nate LaPointe, out of his hippie daze for a show at Kilkenny's in Redondo Beach. The six musicians hit it off immediately, and Nate officially came aboard as lead guitarist and producer of the band's debut album. As work continued on the album, the band hosted the First Annual Regerstock, an epic affair of local talent and goodwill in support of the recent passing of beloved brother Clinton Reger. During the closing hours of the festival, local sax player Stephen Herring joined the band for a roaring set of music that landed the musician the seventh spot in Barley.
