ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
BARB POLK

Barb Polk first sang in public at the age of six, when she toured with the USO. Her professional singing career began in studios where she performed lead and back-up vocals on jingles for clients such as La-Z-Boy, KFC and many others. Along with her vocals, she is a well-established commercial voice over artist. Barbara created the voices on the Discovery Channel’s nationally distributed CD-Rom for children, "Big Job", and “Chatterbuddies”, winner of the Omni Award for Children’s Interactive Programming.

A freelance writer/producer since 1978, Barb has won over 100 local and regional ad awards, including a CLIO for television. She has written and produced numerous stage shows for both of Kentucky’s international championship barbershop choruses, The Thoroughbreds and The Derby City Chorus. Barb was a 1995 grant recipient from the Kentucky Foundation for Women for work on her screenplay, “Mother’s Day”; she wrote, produced and performed the music video “It’s Who I Am” for the Kentucky State Council of Carpenters; and in 2001, she wrote and produced the script and songs for a one woman musical, “Lydia and the Miracle of Work” which was performed on the Whitney Stage at the Kentucky Center for the Arts.

Barb began writing songs in the late 1980’s when she wrote a musical for the stage entitled “Kirbywood”, a satire about suburban living that pokes fun at the intolerance in today’s society. Then in 1993 she created "Green Again", a full-length musical screenplay for The Muppets. Songs from the movie include “It Ain’t In To Wear Skin”, “Fruit Roulette” and “Green Again”. Jim Henson Productions wrote:

"Here at Jim Henson Productions we completely embrace Ms. Polk's message about saving the environment and using Muppets as the spokes-animals for the Earth. She has hit the nail on the Henson banner!"

In April of 1997, Barb joined saxophonist Eddie Humphries to create the duo, Barb & Eddie. Since then they have performed weekly at John E's Restaurant in Louisville, KY performing everything from jazz and standards to pop, rock and R&B. Barb also performs regularly with The Don Krekel Orchestra, a 17 piece big band; was guest back up vocalist for Johnny Rivers at The Palace in Louisville; and featured vocalist in a “Tribute to Rosemary Clooney” with the West Market Street Stompers.

In 2005, Barb teamed with international circus performer and dog trainer, Diane Wasnak to create Bonzer Productions and “DIVAS & DOGS”, a wild and wacky show with songs, comedy, zany characters and amazing animal tricks that appeals to all ages. Barb continues to write all the songs for their live shows which include “Doggy Talk”, a call and response song for performer and audience; “Puppy Don’t Grow Up”, a sentimental song about how much we love little puppies; “Bow Wow Beat” and “Outside in the Country” music videos; and Barb’s newest song “Pile of Dogs on the Bed”, a good time country music tune about the “hazards” of sleeping with your dogs.
