Feature Release: Preston D Barnes - Castles On Quicksand


David Barnes (known also as Preston D Barnes) is a professional vocalist and musician who continues to make waves across the UK following a 22 year career in the British Army. During his military career David has travelled extensively across the globe to over 38 countries. He has played with world renowned artists such as: Jools Holland, Russell Watson, Catherine Jenkins, JLS, and had the opportunity of recording the re-release of Status Quo’s Famous single ‘In The Army Now’ in 2010 as a backing vocalist.


Signed to the new Country Music record label Sonic Boom Records, Preston has previously released 2 albums and is also working on his 3rd release, a collection of original material written by some of USA's most famous songwriters. Preston has been welcomed into the UK Country Scene with open arms and will soon be releasing his fourth single, ‘Castles on Quicksand’ written by Paul Bliss (The Hollies, Sheena Easton, Moody Blues, Celine Dion, Janet Jackson, Olivia Newton John) Steve Kipner (Natasha Bedingfield, Christina Aguilera, The Script, Cheryl Cole, James Arthur) & Peter Beckett (Kenny Rogers, Janet Jackson, The Temptations, Olivia Newton John).


The song tells the story of someone that’s been hurt by a previous relationship and finds it hard to move on when meeting someone new. The standout feature of the track is the combination of old-school-style Blues/Country, accompanied by an edgy production that extends into the modern Country-Rock genre. Preston's vocal delivery is great, and we know you're going to love this one!
