'barely' is the collaboration between four artists that came together in the Atlanta, GA area. The project came out of a recording session centered on creating a four song demo of music to be shopped. The chemistry and friendship that emerged made the participants realize that a band had been birthed. With the passing of Dave in the fall of 2012 it was decided that the "demo" now entitled "You Would Like Us If You Were Better" should be shared with the world, warts and all, in his honor and memory, as it was the last project that this prolific and creative artist, designer, musician, husband, father and deeply loved friend, helped create. The remaining members are continuing on as a unit and are working on a full length album for release in 2013.
