Shaun Barker has been performing since he was a teenager, getting signed to a label development deal by the time he was a senior in High School. His latest release, MISADVENTURES OF A CARELESS YOUTH, is a piano driven album chock full of thoughtful pop tracks you won’t be able to get out of your head. Having toured nationally with singer Linda Eder, who recorded a much-lauded cover of Shaun’s song, “Pieces, ” he is very much looking forward to hitting the road in support of his new album having cultivated a strong following online. Songwriter Fred Rohan Vargas is a talented songwriter from New York. Growing up the son of Latin American Caribbean parents, Fred’s musical compositions have the flavor of the islands, with a diverse mix of calypso, toe-tapping salsa and more. Fred has developed a strong presence online after realizing more and more songwriters use the web to connect with musicians. Currently, Fred’s music can be found on Pump Audio, Crucial Music and HD Music Now’s catalog. Says CEO Liz Leahy, “As Section 101 continues to grow, we also continue to work with exciting and talented new artists.
