Synopsis

Product Description
Barb Jungr's profoundly original arrangements of contemporary American songs have seen her recognised as one of the most important interpreters of the works of Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen. Her unrivalled ability as an enthralling song stylist brings new depth and insight into songs by Dylan, Cohen, Joni Mitchell, David Bowie, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Sondheim & Bernstein and Peter Gabriel. Shelter From The Storm also includes three brand new songs written by Jungr and pianist Laurence Hobgood, well-known for his GRAMMY Award-winning hard-core jazz and partnership with Kurt Elling. Of his first major collaboration since Elling, Hobgood stated 'I'm energized, inspired, and downright giddy at having matched with a ""musician's singer"" - a superb vocalist.' Together Jungr and Hobgood are an exciting tour de force, skilfully supported by Michael Olatuja (bass) and Wilson Torres (percussion). These 'songs of hope' are a much-needed antidote to today's 'troubled times'; an uplifting message superbly realised by Jungr. In 2016 PBS will broadcast a TV program about the album as part of a series on top cabaret artists including Barb's 2015 concert from NY. Barb Jungr is renowned for her unique vocal style, interpretation of song and radical approach to arrangements. One of the UK's finest interpreters of contemporary song Jungr is always original and inventive with a voice that has drawn comparisons with Nina Simone and Peggy Lee. Jungr has won rave international reviews and two prestigious New York awards (2008 Nightlife Award for Outstanding Cabaret Vocalist and Best International Artist 2003 Backstage Award). Jungr was recently shortlisted for a Manhattan Cabaret Award for Best Celebrity Artist and Best Vocalist by the London Cabaret Awards. Jungr's acclaimed releases and 'revelatory' live performances have brought her to audiences all around the world.
