Great Big Love

by Barbara McAfee

Barbara sounds like a zany, mystic Carole King. Her songs are like her native Minnesota weather: warm friendly to cool jazzy to thunderous rowdy to just plain gorgeous...

Album Notes
Barbara McAfee is a Twin Cities-based singer/songwriter whose songs are flavored with jazz, blues, gospel, and Celtic influences. What they have in common is her clear-eyed reflections on the human experience, exquisite lyrics, sassy wit, and piano-infused arrangements. When Barbara serves them up in her clear, strong voice, they go straight to the heart.

She got her start as a jazz singer in nightclubs in the mid-80s, then started writing her own songs during her father’s final illness in 1991. Through a long series of self-produced concerts, Barbara discovered her own voice, both as a singer and a songwriter.

Blending her interest in organizational and individual transformation, Barbara has brought her music to such corporate clients as Best Buy, YMCA, Wells Fargo as well as numerous wellness events, colleges, and private functions.

She has produced 4 CDs as a (fiercely) independent producer working with the finest musicians in the Twin Cities.

Her mission is:
I sing with the sweet breath of God
And I dance on a living planet
My body is holy water
And I dream a world made new

You can hear her sing it on her website:

The CD is a rich mix of songs that celebrates many different kinds of love: mother, mentor, nature, dancing, and romantic.

The CD includes:
a haunting Celtic farewell accompanied by Scottish smallpipes (Kite at Sundown)
a rowdy calypso invitation to turn off your TV (Turn Off Your TV)
a boogie-woogie celebration of a mythical dance hall, complete with a wailing horn section (Temple of Sweat)
a sexy version one of Keb’ Mo’s happy blues (Every Day)
an honest, heartfelt tribute to the complex relationships between mothers and daughters (Mother Song)
a dreamy blessing song for a young woman (Molly Song)
a “carol” that invites simplicity in the busiest time of the year (Simple Season)
Among others.....
