Growing up, friends and Akarsu gathered at the seaside of Amasra to chat and sing songs while playing guitar. There, Akarsu formed his early ties with singing and playing instruments. Music always played a crucial part in his life. His other big ambition was tae kwon do, a branch of martial arts,basketball and in high-school he was sailing professionally in Amasra Sailing Club.[1]

Before reaching fame with his musical and acting projects, Akarsu worked as an animator and musician in Antalya's seaside.

TV series
Akarsu's first and only appearance as an actor is in the popular comedy series Yalancı Yarim. It was designed as a funny summer program but after its success and requests from fans, producers continued the shootings of new episodes. In the show, Akarsu portrays a wealthy young man, Tarık Tekelioğlu, who goes to Italy for his education but rather becomes the most successful rally driver. His father, the owner of a bank, finds out the truth about his son and Tarık is forced to come back and stay in Turkey in order to work and pay off his education debts to his father.Thus, with a false surname, Tarık applies for a job as driver for Naz, whose father needs a loan for his business which he receives from the bank of Tarık's father - with the help of Tarık who provides Naz's father with inside knowledge of his father's preferences and dislikes also resulting in both men becoming friends. In the process, Tarık gets the job as driver and he and Naz fall in love with each other, however, neither wants to be the first to admit such to the other.
On June 29, 2007, Akarsu and two friends were on their way to a celebration party for his birthday in Bodrum. Their car collided with a truck at an intersection with no traffic lights. The driver of the car, Zeynep Koçak (his ex-girlfriend),[2] and passenger Nalan Kahraman died on the day of the accident. Barış Akarsu was transported to a hospital with severe injuries. On July 4, 2007, Akarsu died due to complications arising from the accident.
The location of the accident is a crossroads at the end of a long and straight downhill grade. As a result of protests decrying the lack of traffic lights at that dangerous intersection, new lights have been installed.[3]
