Chase Me Down" is an upbeat rock-folk lament that marries a great melody to a strong theme - the best formula for radio greatness - and we expect it will top the international charts this summer.”

“Barrie Dempsey It had been a while since Barrie has played for us he's been busy collecting songwriting awards and touring. To open, he played James Taylor's "You Can Close Your Eyes"; after that he did a couple off his CD, the first one called "Rivers Run"; then he did a new tune "Open Mic"; and another song off the CD called "Barrie Dempsey". His strong songwriting is backed by his able performing style-- it was a treat to have him back.”
- Tim Woods, The "Wood and Lips" Open Mic Newsletter (Jan 26, 2016)
