STOCKPORT TO MEMPHIS
NEW ALBUM 22.10.2012
“Now I've seen Barb Jungr perform lots of times...and she's such a great vocalist, she really is, open your ears, sit back and enjoy. She's brilliant. Absolutely brilliant.”
“In 2002, the British singer Barb Jungr released “Barb Jungr sings Bob Dylan: Every Grain of Sand”, which is, as far as I'm concerned, the most significant vocal album of the 21st century thus far”
The Wall Street Journal
“A fearless iconoclast who dives into the deepest waters of popular song to wrest exotic treasure from the ocean floor.”
The New York Times, Oct 2011
