Jill Barber

Origin: Ontario, Canada

Main instrument: Vocal

Genre: Pop

The music of Canadian Jill Barber transcends time and trends. This  singer-songwriter has drawn raves for her warm voice, which recalls that of great song divas like Édith Piaf. Her vocal signature is showcased on the 2008 CD, Chances, whose traditional romantic style evokes the music of the 1950s. Earlier in her career, Barber went through a country-folk phase best exemplified by her CD, For All Time, for which she was named female artist of the year at the 2007 East Coast Music Awards. Mischievous Moon came out in 2011, and a French album, Chansons, followed two years later. In 2016, she teamed up with her brother Mattew to create The Family Album.
