For over 10 years, Barry Uhl has dedicated himself to the art of craft of composing music. Most of his creative work has involved scoring music for TV, Video Games and Film projects.
Born in Redding, CA Barry began his love of music at the age of 3. Over the years he has learned to play not only the piano, but also, guitar, banjo, clarinet and vocals.
After receiving his degree in music composition and music theory from Lionel Hampton School of Music, Barry moved to Seattle, WA in order to study the art and craft of film music with two-time Emmy award winning composer Hummie Mann, at Pacific Northwest Film Scoring Program.
Prior to the completion of the Pacific Northwest Film Scoring Program, Barry started working as a composer for an interactive company Game Samba, a company owned in part by Funimation and several other studios and independent productions companies such as Hand Crank Films where he has been fortunate enough to write scores and arrange for TV companies such as TLC and National Geographic.
Barry composes for orchestras, jazz groups, choirs, electronic, and a wide array of other music groups and styles with the goal of exploring the deeper side of music composition. Barry has expanded his musical exploration by orchestrating for the Seattle Rock Orchestra. He has orchestrated pieces for Allen Stone and other National Artists.
When not scoring, Barry builds and repairs instruments and is an avid late 1960’s Psychedelic Pop record collector. He has built his own Mellotron, guitar petals, and other various synthesizers.
Barry also leads a psychedelic pop band called Brother Bear. Taking up the challenge set forth by the likes of Brian Wilson, Rod Argent, Lennon/McCartney, Syd Barrett and the many others who pioneered the late 1960’s Psychedelic Pop sound, Barry Uhl and Co. are attempting to carry on their legacy.
Barry also plays keys for Seattle Folk Artist Damien Jurado and has enjoyed touring Europe, Canada and the United States with the band.
Barry is driven to learn and grow, both with his music and in his life. He is proud of his accomplishments he has created so far. He looks forward to the next level of creative challenges with excitement and eagerness.
