"With just her piano and a warm, engaging voice, Barnaby creates songs that harken back to the days when singer-songwriters like Carole King roamed the earth." (Boston Globe)
"The 'Genuine Article,'....the purest of pure. This woman has a voice that would give Joni Mitchell goosebumps." (Derek Sivers, CDBaby)

Jacquie Barnaby has been called a cross between Aimee Mann with a piano and Ben Folds with breasts. She delivers powerful vocals and intelligent lyrics, and backs it up with soulful, intricate piano work. Because her influences are so eclectic, her music has unparalleled originality, ebullience and versatility. Her carefully chosen songs (with covers ranging from early Bonnie Raitt to Radiohead) are interspersed with anecdotes both witty and poignant; having lived in Chicago, Pittsburgh, D.C., Boston, New York City, and England, Jacquie has a lot of interesting stories to tell. Music is how she likes to talk to people, to make them feel less lonely, strange, or hopeless.
