ROBIN BARNES is a jazz chanteuse who works out of New Orleans where her regular, sold-out shows and concerts have earned her the nickname “The Songbird Of New Orleans”.
Always in demand, Robin’s popularity is set to soar as her 5 track EP, ‘The Songbird Sessions’ enters the Billboard Current Traditional Jazz albums chart top ten. The mini album offers Robin’s distinctive look at a set of jazz and soul standards that have all been recorded by her New Orleans’ role models…. Allen Toussaint and Irma Thomas.
Ms Barnes gives new twists to the familiar, like ‘Ruler Of My Heart’ and ‘My Funny Valentine’ and throughout she’s supported by a sweet, soulful, low key ensemble made up of Pat Casey (bass), Danny Abell, Steve Masakowski (guitars) and drummers Shannon Powell and Herlin Martin.
