It's not uncommon for teenagers to dream of making "a go of it" in the music business, and in that respect, Peoria based singer Matt Barber was like many kids his age. What makes his story uncommon is the musical direction he took. GLT's Jon Norton has the story.
In addition to upcoming gigs at various Illinois retirement communities, you can see Barber at the Heart Of Illinois Fair in Peoria July 19th, and the Illinois State Fair in Springfield on August 11th.
