CLOUDWALKING comes with a 16 page booklet complete with song lyrics, studio pics and other goodies. Released after 1999's JOY, CLOUDWALKING is a lush follow up that finds Bari's music heavily orchestrated with a rich musical soundscape. The record features the popular live songs 'New York' and the pop anthem 'Perfect'. Some of the album most special moments lie in the gentle melancholy of the title track, as well as some musical jams throughout the record which showcase the talented musicians Bari and producer Ken Rich brought on board. After an accident where she injured her hand, Bari was unable to play guitar during a good portion of 2002. Her roommate taught her some basic piano techniques and Bari locked herself up in her apartment and literally taught herself to play. 'It was pretty crazy, but I had to find a way to express myself, and they say necessity is the mother of invention. So, the piano was my only language, and I just had to learn to speak it. I was coming up with all these arrangements and chords, I don't think I knew what half of them were, but I was able to compose almost the entire record on piano. It's funny, cause after we recorded, and my hand healed and I was able to play guitar again, I never went back to the piano. It was almost like it never happened. Except I have all these songs now. Crazy.' A bonus track includes the popular live tune 'I never realized I was so dirty inside.'
