ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Singer-songwriter, Barbara Garriel is from New York. “Ample Patience” is her debut release. Barbara’s style is an eclectic blend of adult contemporary blues, country, and folk-rock, with a whole lot of heart and soul.

The album is a compilation of songs about yearnings and desires, freedom and friendship, betrayal and found love. They are gutsy, sensual songs with heartfelt lyrics.

“Ample Patience” was originally recorded and produced by award winning singer-songwriter, Tom Prasada-Rao. Additional recording, production and mastering was done at Media One Recording with award winning producer Steve Young.

"Barbara Garriel writes smart, sassy, sexy, and satirical songs that instantly grab the audience. Her voice is the voice of every woman. Her songwriting is without clutter and her voice effortlessly carries with it a lightness and joy that many of us have to spend years and years honing. Everyone is smiling when Barbara is playing. Her wonderful presence is joyful and confident and contagious!" Joe Iadanza, Host - Canvas Gallery Open Mic, Singer/Songwriter

Stella Davie of Laundry Room Music writes:
"Barbara’s songs are like lemon drops. They’re fun, they're sweet, with
a little bit of an edge that is strangely reminiscent of something
from long ago that you’re glad to have back in your life."

Besides writing songs and performing, Barbara writes children’s books and offers author/assembly presentations and writing workshops at schools and libraries.

Some of her titles include:
I Know a Shy Fellow Who Swallowed a Cello, Wolves and Their Ways, Underwater Cities – the Coral Reefs, and Endangered Sea Life. Barbara’s website has more information about her books and presentations.

Garriel's Music is Ripe and Ready!!!
What do you get when you cross Bonnie Raitt with Laura Nyro? What do you get when the Mistress meets the Masters? What do you get when you cross the best of musical genres from days gone by with contemporary stylings?

I could not have been more surprised by this superb collection of songs! Rarely these days does an artist release a first CD that achieves this level of quality.

Barbara Garriel possesses a voice that is as rich and sensuous as red velvet. She is the girl-next-door dressed in the finest black leather. Her well-crafted songs reflect a warm and spirited soul who is feisty, flirty, and fun-loving all at the same time. From blues to country, Barbara carries it all off in high style. Her music is ripe and ready. She represents every woman, but believe me, this CD is no audio chick flick.

When combining forces with master producers Tom Prasada-Rao and Steve Young, this CD is one heck of a good listen. The instrumentation is right on the money as each track hits its mark.

There are so many memorable tracks on this CD that it’s nearly impossible to choose a favorite. The songs head in many directions and styles but the project stands as a unified whole. Even with the variety of styles, I’d bet that folks who prefer one genre over another will not skip over any of the excellent songs in this collection.


The Open Road – The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, but when it does, stand aside, boys, and let the lady ride. This song sets the listener in motion from the first sassy note and could go on for ten minutes and not lose momentum. Oh, yeah!

Girls Night Out – Take Girls Just Wanna Have Fun but translate it to what grown-up girls are after when it’s time for a little escape!

Before You Go – This song has “Broadway beauty” written all over it. Each time I hear it, I envision that turning point when that heartbreaking, show-stopping moment of acceptance comes, the audience falls silent, then sends waves of compassionate applause as the heroine gently bows her head at its conclusion.

One Voice – The percussive heartbeat rhythm of this song is the perfect backdrop for the wakeup call that must be heard if we are to save our planet.

Ample Patience - More Than Ample Pleasure
I didn't know what to expect when I played Barbara Garriel's new "Ample Patience" on my car CD player, but it only took me a few notes to be hooked! I fell in love with the songs, the music, the arrangements and with the singer! As I listened to each of the 14 tracks, I found myself driving with the radio turned up and a big smile on my face. "Ample Patience" has a place of honor among my CD collection.

Ample Patience
Knowing Barbara as an intelligent, talented, and sensitive person-she still knocked me over with this CD. Wonderful songs. Very cool arrangements and choice of instruments. But above all is Barbara's ability to go from a saucy songstress in "Be The Man" to a soft, sensitive whispering voice in "What Were the Chances". What a range of songs she has put together. Her lyrics stand up so well. She has crafted some beautiful songs. And, with Tom Prasada-Rao's and others' help, delivers them is S-T-Y-L-E. Do yourself a favor- get this CD, sit back & listen. It's a gem! Congrats, Barbara!

I'll admit that I love Tom Prasada-Rao's music, as well as the jazzy blues and country genres he works with here. Beyond TPR's outstanding imprint on this CD, as a fellow singer-songwriter I have been familiar with Barbara Garriel's songs for several years, and have a lot of enthusiasm for them. She is not only an excellent song-writer, but a fine performer as well. With respect to relationship songs and matters of the heart, the suggested comparison with Eliza Gilkyson, one of my all-time favorite songwriters and performers, is appropriate. I heartily recommend this great collection of songs!

A gutsy, gritty, sexy, vibrant mixture of piercingly honest music ranging from Cajun blues to masterfully crafted classic country. From the kickass Cajun of “Too Late For That Now” to the haunting underbelly of forbidden love on “Saturday Night Lady” to the Nashville hit sound of "Don’t Shut Me In”, Ample Patience is a treasure.
