Though his career began with melodic hardcore-punk band Avail, Tim Barry has been releasing solo albums — while existing off the grid — of bare-bones country-folk songs about injustice and the beauty of change.

With the growing list of punk-turned-roots acts (see Greg Graffin of Bad Religion’s excellent 2006 effort, Cold as the Clay, or anything John Doe of X and Mark Lanegan of Screaming Trees have been up to for many years for further evidence…) one could assume that an acoustic singer/songwriter project is the going retirement plan for punks seeking solace from the hustle and bustle of crusty noise and leather.
