The journey of Arizona's hit recording duo, CooBee Coo began in 2012 in a 1950's brick house. Located in a quickly growing farm town called Gilbert, the renovated brick house was named 'Studio At The Farm' and was opened by friends & recording engineers, KC Barras & Jesse Morrison. As an attempt to gain more notice to their new studio recording business, Morrison & Barras began recording and producing original music to release their first debut album on both cd & vinyl called "Melodies From The Farm." Could-Be-Cool right?
Not yet finished with their journey and musical goals in their mid-twenties, the duo continued to record and experiment with new sounds and unique ways to capture original tones in their vintage style farmhouse studio. The two would switch recording rolls in-studio to record each other's tracks and simultaneously engineering sections of each track with big drum sounds and unique guitar tones by Barras. A 100 year old family owned upright piano along with some vintage organs produced a unique sound for Morrison's key parts. CooBee Coo's sound would truly take form when meticulous vocal parts of multiple harmonies were layered into each original piece by Barras & Morrison.
Multiple recorded albums, EP's, and one independent movie release later, the duo has earned placements on various hit television series and major sports programs through a team effort with their label Fervor Records. CooBee Coo's music can be streamed digitally on Spotify, iTunes, and numerous other players.
The duo has recently joined forces with musicians of their own community to bring their fully produced and original sound to the big stage for live performances in 2017.

"CooBee Coo's 'Melodies From The Farm' encompasses everything you hope for in a record. Great songs, production
sensibilities that melt in your mouth, and for the cherry on top it's very nicely recorded and mixed. You can't listen to it just once. It's in my ipod, it should be in yours too"
