Record Bar - 5751-11 Oleander Drive Wilmington NC

In the lush tobacco fields of North Carolina where BJ Barham was raised, people work hard. Families stay nearby, toiling and growing together. BJ loves those farms and his tiny Reidsville hometown, but he had to run off and start American Aquarium, a band now beloved by thousands. BJ couldnt stay. But he couldnt really leave, either: hes still singing about the lessons, stories, and lives that define rural Americaand him. Recorded at 3CG Records in Tulsa, Oklahoma, American Aquariums seventh studio album, Things Change was produced by Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter John Fulbright and features cameos from Americana standouts including John Moreland and Jamie Lin Wilson. Stacked with BJs signature storytellingalways deeply personal but also instantly relatableThings Change questions and curses current events, shares one mans intimate evolution, and leaves listeners with a priceless gift: hope. BJs candor has fueled American Aquariums runaway appeal, visible most clearly in consistently sold-out shows across the country and throughout Europe - between 200 and 250 dates a year. Much has changed for the band and BJ since their acclaimed last effort, Wolves. In 2017, every American Aquarium member save BJ quit the group. American Aquarium has featured about 30 players since BJ founded the outfit in 2006, and while each member has left indelible marks, the band has always been anchored by the literary songs and sometimes roaring, sometimes whispering, drawl of BJ Barham. Featuring a new band lineup that includes Shane Boeker on lead guitar, drummer Joey Bybee, bassist Ben Hussey, and Adam Kurtz on pedal steel and electric guitar, as well as a reinvigorated frontman in BJ, Things Change is American Aquariums first release on a label after selling thousands of records on their own.
