Wish You Were Here Bio:

For Barnett, Wish You Were Here is part reinvention, part catharsis, and part fresh start. For years, he’s fronted hardcore behemoth Stick To Your Guns, and although Wish You Were Here couldn't be more sonically different, the project's origins actually go back to Barnett's earliest musical roots. A love of Paul Simon preceded his introduction to punk rock and engrained Barnett's musical DNA with the idea that volume is not the only way to achieve impactful, compelling songs. The beginnings of Wish You Were Here were less an intentional activity and more a necessary response to personal turmoil within his life--a place to find solace and process feelings through creativity. Barnett describes "Come Find Me" saying, "This is a song about feeling trapped by people who think that they know what’s best for you. Sometimes it’s better to cut ties than to let yourself get dragged down, even if it’s difficult or feels harsh."
