Jill Barber

Jill Barber‘s latest cd Oh Heart became a favourite in our house the first day we heard it. “[S]teeped in old jazz rhythms mixed with a touch of bluegrass twang and gentle folk melody,” her music plays well with Jolie Holland and Gillian Welch‘s Soul Journey. Oh Heart, like Soul Journey, is a collection of music best appreciated as a single work — as an album. (Save random-play for MP3s.)
