Her song “Let The Wind Chase You,” recorded by Trisha Yearwood and Keith Urban, received a Grammy nomination for vocal collaboration in 2009.
Barris’ film credits include “Honey Suckle Sweet” from the Miramax film "An Unfinished Life" and “Liars Lie” featured in the Tim McGraw/ Gwyneth Paltrow film "Country Strong."
Reminiscent of Claire Lynch and Aoife O'Donovan, her current CD “Restless Soul” is a testament to her love for Celtic music, she said. Both Celtic and English folk music influences turn up in Barris' songwriting.
