Babe has a curious musical mind that makes her a hard one to label, with her unique blend of roots, blues, world and pop. But who would want to? This singer-songwriter and her polished band bring a crowd-pleasing vibe to every show they perform. With intelligent lyrics and memorable melodies superbly delivered in a warm, sultry voice, Babe is the total package. It all comes through loud and clear on her CDs and live stage show.
Babe’s new recording is a treat, although not always sweet. Hearts Up To The Sun - a five song EP – features Babe’s talents in full form as producer, singer and songwriter. Musically it is as hot as Louisiana hot sauce and the horn arrangements sound like they might well have come from there. Babe’s voice is sounding as good or better than ever. The band is great. But the songs… wow!- the songs mark a step forward. They are even better than the ones she won awards for with her last release- SideDish. This is a full course meal covering the full range of human emotion from antipasto through desert. The message of these songs and this recording is, as Babe sings in one song, ‘laugh, cry, be honest.’ Great sounds carry great words. This is very good work indeed from an artist who just keeps getting better.
Babe recently won the Sonic Bids Nashville Song Contest and garnered honourable mention for three self-penned tunes in the acclaimed Billboard World Song Contest, earning her a spot amidst the elite of international songwriters. Most recently, Babe was selected as a finalist for two self-penned tunes in the Great American Song Contest.
From headlining music festivals coast to coast, playing some of the most popular and prestigious concert halls in Canada, New York and Seattle, licensing her tunes for the FOX series Higher Ground to appearances on TV’s Big Sound, Canada AM and The Jim Byrnes Show Babe has brought her music to audiences worldwide.
