Lincoln BarrLincoln established the Seattle-based singer/songwriter vehicle Red Jacket Mine in 2003, made three albums and an EP with them, and in 2017 released his first solo album, the jazzy, live-in-studio Trembling Frames.

For more, see and

Here he is playing “How to Escape” solo live. Listen to the full “Memory Up and Die” while watching some of the mastery process. Here’s an AOR rock video from Red Jacket Mine, and here’s a chipper one. Here they are at their most chipper, live in studio.
