"The most significant vocal album of the twenty first century thus far"
- The Wall Street Journal
Barb Jungr has wowed audiences and critics worldwide with her powerful reinterpretations of Bob Dylan’s work. Known for her passionate singing, minimal and subtle arrangements, and great humour, Barb Jungr is the definitive performer of one of the great musical icons of the 20th century, Bob Dylan.
Variously described by critics as magnificent, mesmerizing and magical, Barb Jungr has built a formidable reputation as an international live performer and recording artiste. She has perfected the art of interpretation to such a level that listeners are often astonished to discover that well-known songs that they thought they knew, have been wonderfully transformed and very often elevated when Barb weaves her magic spell.
Her repertoire includes songs by Jacques Brel, Nina Simone, Jimmy Webb, Leonard Cohen and Bruce Springsteen (to name a few) and she has attracted particular acclaim for her work on the songs of Bob Dylan, which produced two critically-acclaimed albums and a series of sell-out, award-winning transatlantic shows. For four consecutive years (2008 through to 2011) Barb has ranked at the top of Time Out, New York’s best cabaret awards, for her mesmerizing shows, and in 2008 she also received the Nightlife Award for Outstanding Cabaret Vocalist.
