From her modest beginnings as a shy acoustic folkie on the local coffeehouse stage, Jill Barber’s career has also been looking up. With the release of her fourth album Mischievous Moon, a stunning concoction of sweeping strings and dramatic orchestration backing Barber’s unmistakable contralto, Jill Barber’s evolution to confident chanteuse is complete.

Inspired by the great ladies of song like Ella Fitzgerald and Edith Piaf, Barber reached for a place on the international stage with the release of her last record, 2008’s Chances. It was a turning point in her career, says Barber. “I think it’s important to experiment and try on a number of musical hats to a point, but eventually you have figure out what your own contribution is going to be. When I finished writing and recording Chances something clicked and I suddenly realized that I was no longer pretending to be an artist, I had become one.”
