He’s opened for vocal giants Brian McKnight, Craig David, Eric Benet and K-Ci & JoJo, toured globally with the world-renowned Darlene Zschech and Grammy-winning Israel Houghton, penned songs for an array of artists – and even sung for the Pope.
No stranger to screen, Conrad landed a role on FOX’s Power Rangers: Ninja Storm and featured in numerous TV commercials, before taking his first leap to feature films in the #1 box office hit, The Sapphires. Barry made his musical theatre debut in the Australian premiere production of Broadway smash, VIOLET, enjoying award-winning, critically acclaimed seasons in Sydney and Melbourne.
Hot on the heels of VIOLET’s success, Barry toured nationally playing ‘Seaweed’ in Hairspray Arena Spectacular. And in 2017, the role of ‘Kenickie’ in another national production, Grease: The Arena Experience. The show reunited him with fellow The X-Factor alumni and Eurovision superstar, Dami Im. Barry now joins the Australian cast of Tony Award-winning Broadway hit, BEAUTIFUL: The Carole King Musical. This notably marks his fourth consecutive musical within 18 months.
An advocate for health and fitness, Barry is an ambassador for 180 Nutrition, also working with New York Times best-selling author Sarah Wilson’s I Quit Sugar. Passionate about giving back, he also flexes his philanthropy muscles as proud ambassador for R U OK?, Compassion Australia and Cancer Council.
