The Barr Brothers’ ‘Queens of the Breakers’ is available on Secret City Records, a glowing album that speaks to the raw, elemental power of reflection, forgiveness, loss, and growing up.

‘Queens of the Breakers’ takes its name from The Breakers, a Vanderbilt mansion perched atop Newport, Rhode Island’s rocky coastline. As a teenager, Brad was part of a mischievous group of friends that would descend upon Newport dressed in their mothers’ clothing; the better to shock the tourists. It’s a vehicle for reflection: a tight group of friends that grew apart, now seen through a Terrence Malick ‘Tree Of Life’-like haze.
