Jill Barber Touring in Oct/Nov & New Single 'Took Me By Surprise'

“The most beautifully orchestrated pop album in years” – Toronto Star

From her modest beginnings as a shy acoustic folkie on local coffeehouse stages across her native Canada, Jill Barber’s recent career has reached starry heights internationally. With the release of her fourth album Mischievous Moon, a stunning musical concoction of sweeping strings and dramatic orchestration featuring Barber’s unmistakable contralto, Jill Barber’s evolution to confident chanteuse is complete.
 
Her latest single Took Me By Surprise is an insight into the smooth sounds of Bossa Nova through the eyes of Jill Barber. Sultry, breathy, and incredible smooth, Took Me By Surprise shakes up a traditional sound with a twist of her dangerously infectious jazzy vocals.

Jill will be heading to Australia on tour in October.  Catch her on the following dates:
