Barbeau is known for combining surreal lyrics with pop melodies and is often described as being in the songwriting tradition of Robyn Hitchcock, Syd Barrett, and The Beatles. He has shared stages with artists like Hitchcock, The Bevis Frond, Weezer, Mono, and even a reformed Bay City Rollers.
Since he appeared on the music scene in the late 1980s, Barbeau has made a name for himself in the Sacramento area, winning a number of SAMMIE (Sacramento Area Music) Awards. His first CD, The Horse’s Tongue, collected songs that had appeared on a number of self-released cassettes. Since then he has released fifteen albums, plus two anthologies of miscellaneous tracks, as well as a limited-edition live CD, a collection of demos, and a bonus CD included with the In the Village of the Apple Sun CD.
