My love for the music of Canada’s Jill Barber was born from a recommendation that a reader sent me roughly a year ago. Enamored then, I am now a full-fledged fan with many of Barber’s songs embedded into my brain.
I am also very happy to announce that Ms. Barber released her first full-length album, For All Time earlier this month, continuing her penchant for jaunty, old-timey folk songs served up with a quality that’s missing from much of today’s music.
Recorded at Monumental Sound in Toronto and produced by Les Cooper, the new record places Barber in the company of many inspired musicians including Jim Cuddy, Bazil Donovan, Blake Manning, Spencer Evans, Luke Doucet and her brother, singer-songwriter, Matthew Barber.
Jill Barber is currently on tour in support of For All Time in the United Kingdom and Ireland, her first ever performances there. In Novemeber, she’ll begin an eleven-date Canadian tour with Ron Sexsmith.
