This show is presented by the Winnipeg Jazz Festival.
Festival favourite Jill Barber returns, on the heels of her captivating performance at Knox United Church.
On her latest album, Metaphora, Barber boldly bursts into the world of contemporary pop music. The dramatic result is a Jill Barber like you've never heard before; a showcase of her power and vulnerability as both an artist and a woman. Evolving over the course of many albums from folk to jazz, R & B and pop, her success is defined not by genre, but by her undeniable songwriting chops and distinctive voice. Metaphora is a continuation of Barber's musical story that confidently tackles everything from issues of empowerment, sexual politics, the complications of love, and depression. It's introspective and personal. It's also a dance party.
It was a mutual friend and musician, Hannah Georgas who introduced Jill to Ryan Guldemond, the enigmatic lead singer of Mother Mother. Serendipitously, Ryan lives just a few blocks away on the same East Vancouver street as Barber, and they began having regular songwriting sessions.
