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.
