Juan Barbosa has released a new album, Soulbot 6000. I was hooked right from the intro
CANADIAN BEATS MAGAZINE
Huntsville, Ontario native Juan Barbosa is a versatile and dynamic musical talent that has achieved recognition for his unique delivery of the blues with a funky and sometimes soulful edge.
Over the development of his career he has ventured across a number of genres including hip-hop, R & B, rock and soul and as his music has matured you can find many of these elements presenting themselves in his original material.
His three albums including his most recent, Soulbot 6000, have achieved strong Canadian commercial success and comparisons have been drawn by local media to James Brown, Jimi Hendrix, John Fogerty, Buddy Guy and John Mayer.
As flattering as these comparisons are, Juan’s response has been that "I am only trying to learn from the best teachers, not to copy them".
Whether performing as a soloist or with his band of recognised musicians he delivers an energetic and soulful show using his voice and guitar to generate a feeling of raw emotion and reckless abandon with his audience.
