For years, Kevin Barker has been juggling careers - as a musician and as a filmmaker. He's spent the last few years recording, touring, and collaborating with Devendra Banhart, Joanna Newsom, Vashti Bunyan, Vetiver, Antony and the Johnsons, and Espers, to name just a few. Essentially acting as everyone's favorite sideman, Barker has influenced and helped create a sound with which some of this generation is happily familiar.
Simultaneously, Barker attended film school at Columbia University, during which he shot the footage that would eventually become his feature documentary The Family Jams, which captures the 2004 tour of Banhart, Newsom and Vetiver. The Family Jams has played at the Sarasota Film Festival, Film Pop Montreal and Copenhagen International Documentary Film Festival and is still making the festival rounds.
