Bio

The youngest of 11 children Barbara was born in Jersey City, New Jersey and educated in north Florida. She emigrated to Europe for a number of years. It sculpted her character and spawned a twist of diversity in her music

Her songs are true-to-the-heart about life, love, angst, fears, insecurities and pain. In her modern pop crossover style of music, you'll hear rock, hip hop, country and soul elements. Her sound is juxtapositioned extremes: heaven and hell - hot and cold. With Barbara, life is intensely on the edge with the ever-changing here and now.

Italy embraced her as she participated in numerous and diverse music projects dedicating her talent to a wide genre of music. However, real recognition arrived at her door when she began touring with celebrated Italian artists and collaborating with international artists as a background vocalist during their world tours.

She participated in the San Remo Italian Song Festival three times and has collaborated with various italian artists like Paolo Conte, Elisa, Zucchero, Andrea Mingardi and Articolo 31 to name a few, then along with international artists like Mariah Carey and the original Blues Brothers.

Barbara has appeared either as a singer, host or actress on italian television programs like Scherzi a Parte, Tappetto Volante, Zecchino d’oro, Re per una notte, Estatissima Sprint e Come Thelma & Louise. She collaborated with Carlo Verdone for his theatrical tour called "Carlo Verdone racconta Carlo Verdone" and has had the pleasure to perform at various italian celebrity events for the likes of Pavarotti, Santo Versace, Laura Biagiotti, Virna Lisi, Christiano de Sica and Nino Manfredi.

Her distinct voice was chosen for the Italian Fiat Stilo and Citroen car commercial jingles. She also recorded a rendition of Barry White's Love Unlimited 70's hit "I'm So Glad That I'm a Woman" and promoted it on italian TV and summer fests.

Barbara is currently collaborating with some of the most successful dance/electronica music producers in Europe thru the recording agency she established called www.cool-live.com

Although it is a real challenge, she’s teaching herself to play piano and guitar. Nevertheless, she has already composed fifteen songs that are in the production stage.
