Matthew Barber and Jill Barber "The Family Album"
These remarkably talented siblings collaborated to recapture the golden age of song writing, jazz vocals, folk and roots music. On The Family Album, released in April 2016, the duo delve into the great Canadian songbook, from Ian Tyson's Summer Wages to Neil Young's Comes a Time, while honouring song writing greats Bobby Charles and Townes Van Zandt. Both highly accomplished musicians in their own right, Jill Barber has garnered over 30 award nominations, including two JUNOs, and Matthew Barber is one of Canada's most respected and admired singer songwriters. A Juno Award nominee, through eight albums Matthew has stayed close to the folk and roots style of his favourite artists, Neil Young and Bob Dylan.
