Album information

Barb Jungr's unrivalled ability as an enthralling song stylist brings new depth and insight into songs by Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Joni Mitchell, David Bowie, Rodgers & Hammerstein, Sondheim & Bernstein and Peter Gabriel.

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. This brand new album includes Dylan, Cohen and a host of songs by other acclaimed contemporary writers. 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 not just thrilled to be collaborating with Barb Jungr; I'm energized, inspired, and downright giddy at having matched with a "musician's singer" - a superb vocalist whose musical intelligence is its own formidable, evolved force with which to reckon.' 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 a superb singer. In 2016 it was named an 'Album of the Year' by Andy Robson in Jazzwise
