Barker & Broski

Who are Barker & Broski?

Michael Snyder-Barker and Chris Broski formed the Barker & Broski project in 2018 to focus on creating original music. Mike's lyrics have been described as a combination of Frank Zappa and Dr. Seuss, and Chris is happy to follow those words to the strange and wondrous places the music takes him.
