Simultaneously, Barker attended film school at Columbia University, during which he shot the footage that would eventually become his feature documentary The Family Jams, which captures the 2004 tour of Banhart, Newsom and Vetiver. The Family Jams has played at the Sarasota Film Festival, Film Pop Montreal and Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival and is still making the festival rounds. Barker released his debut solo album, You & Me, which assembles a talented team of musicians. Produced by Thom Monahan (Vetiver, Lilys, Gary Louris, Devendra Banhart), the album features Pat Sansone (Wilco), Joanna Newsom, Jonathan Wilson (Elvis Costello, Jenny Lewis), Eric Johnson (Shins, Fruit Bats), and Otto Hauser (Vetiver, Espers).

Full of sunny, rural country rock, You & Me recalls the rustic grooves of The Band and The Grateful Dead, the heady melancholy of Roy Harper, and the golden harmonies of CSNY. Read more on Last.fm.
