The Family Album has been years in the making…
Jill Barber has garnered over 30 award nominations including 2 JUNO Awards and has won multiple times at the East Coast Music Awards, Western Canadian Music Awards, Nova Scotia Music Awards and was the recipient of Jazz Artist of the Year from Sirius XM. Her last album Fool’s Gold debuted at #1 on the Canadian Jazz Charts and spent a remarkable 13 weeks there.
Matthew Barber has become one of Canada’s most respected and admired signer songwriters, like his sister, Matthew has been nominated for multiple awards, including a JUNO. Through eight albums, Matthew has stayed close to the folk and roots style of his favorite artists, Neil Young, Bob Dylan but always aware of the hook and the melody.
The Family Album touches on the great Canadian songbook, from Ian Tyson’s “Summer Wages,” to Neil Young’s “Comes A Time,” they also delve deeper into honoring the song writing greats Bobby Charles and Townes Van Zandt. The result is a seamless and beautiful work that shows the Barbers ability to interpret the works of others and craft their own songs that fit snug amongst the classics. The harmonies are sure to bring a chill and a tear and the album will become a staple for those who love both of these great Canadian artists.
