ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Music of heart and mind. A little wisdom mixed with a touch of worldliness. Poetic. A bit sultry. Sometimes it’s hard to pin singer, pianist and songwriter Deb Barr down into a particular category. She draws from her diverse musical background and experiences to bring a range of thoughts and emotions to the stage in what feels like an intimate experience, even when the room is packed.
Born and raised in West Texas, Barr moved to Austin to attend college and started performing as a solo artist at the hot spots of the day, including Castle Creek and the Cactus Café. She worked with a variety of Austin bands before forming the Deb Barr Group, a jazz quartet, in the late 1970s. In 1981, she left Austin for the up-and-coming ski town of Telluride where she worked with a series of bands – the Telluride Jazz Quintet, Electrolix and The Movers – before moving to New York City in the late 1980s.
In New York, Barr studied voice with renowned jazz educator Ann Marie Moss (Manhattan School of Music), before heading back west, first to New Mexico, where she was named one of the state’s top five jazz vocalists (1995). The journey eventually brought Barr back home to the San Juan Mountains, where she joined Jeff Solon’s Swinging Big Band(out of Durango) as lead vocalist in 1999. In 2011 Barr resumed her solo career and now performs regionally, while continuing to write songs and to pursue creative new endeavors, including “Deb & Tommy,” a musical partnership with old friend and Austin musician, Tommy Dean.
Barr has recorded and produced three albums – “Comets & Waves,” “From the Mountainside – Songs of Faith & Inspiration“ and “All My Stories.” With the exception of “From the Mountainside,” which includes music by others, the albums feature Barr’s original compositions, and she currently has plans for two more (mostly) original albums – one jazz and one “singer-songwriter.” Barr is a published and acclaimed poet and co-author of the chatbook “There Will Always Be A Place” with photographer Jim Womeldorf.
