“As a pianist and vocalist, she is a force to be reckoned with. As a songwriter, she is pure devastation- Jazz Police. From her early days leading a jazz trio in small Chicago nightclubs, Patricia Barber has drawn extravagant accolades. The praise came first from local writers impressed by her unique arrangements and cooly composed piano improvisations. As she added vocals to her repertoire, the praise poured in from national reviewers intoxicated by her recordings. After years of international touring, she began to focus on her own compositions, receiving kudos from her fans, besotted by her lapidary lyrics and her often indelible imagery. Recently, Barber has teamed up with ArtistShare, and will be releasing her first new album in 6 years, which will be available in March, 2019!
