Barleycove is the creation of Upstate singer-songwriter, Laura Jones-Thomas. She is a teacher by day, and a singer by night. She is usually accompanied by Jesse Thomas on guitar and Tim Trammel on percussion. However, Barleycove was created with the vision that music is organic and the players may change over time.

‘Always With Me’ is the second release for barleycove. These nine songs were written over the past four years during Laura’s participation in an ongoing Songwriter’s Series offered through the Peace Center, led by Edwin McCain and Maia Sharp. It was there she also met songwriters, Lindsay Brazell and L.C. Branch.

L.C. Branch collaborated on many songs with this project and also helped as producer. Maia contributed her musical gifts on the songs, “See Through You” and “Lost Bird”. “Lost Bird” is a special song inspired by the life of Zintkala Nuni. Laura was so moved after reading her biography to seek the blessing from the Lakota tribe to share her story through song and dedicate this album to the Lakota Nation. John Martin engineered, mixed and mastered the album at Sit-N-Spin Studios in Greenville, SC.
