ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Heather Masse and her five piece band of Barbarians present an elegant, insistent melange of jazz, country-blues, folk, soul, and rock and roll. Shifting plainly between reverie and sobriety and braced all the while by a rampant tenderness, the Barbarians craft a pliant, artful sound that demands, engages, and soothes. With a growing repertoire of stunningly-arranged originals and cover-songs, the Barbarians, who formed at the New England Conservatory of Music, have been performing in Boston and New York City for several years.

Heather Masse grew up in rural Maine and began singing at an early age. Having taken a degree in Jazz Voice from the New England Conservatory of Music, Heather is steeped in the jazz tradition, which informs her distinct approach to singing music of all sorts. She has performed with the world-renowned contemporary bluegrass band "The Wayfaring Strangers," appearing at venues including NPR's World Cafe, and Boston's Symphony Hall, sharing the stage with the Boston Pops Orchestra. She recently recorded an eponymous album with the up-and-coming Boston-based group "Joy Kills Sorrow." Heather recently joined the acclaimed Canadian band “The Wailin’ Jennys” and will be touring the country beginning in April 07’

Tell me tonight
I met Heather in Toronto on June 12th and I was impressed by her as a person and artist. She sings all her songs from her heart and the more you hear her, either as one of the Jennys or in this case as Heather of the Barbarians, you will be impressed by her amazing sultry voice as a solo singer, or as part of the amazing Jennys' harmony singing. Finally, she has a beautiful smile and magnetic stage presence. You will love her song "Driving"

Excellent album by talented musicians and wonderful song writing
I saw this group a few times and was extremely impressed by them. Compared to their live performance, this album is a good representation of their sound. The group blends together well, their playing is nuanced, stylish, and at times harmonically complex, and the songs are all beautifully rendered and constructed. Heather Masse's voice is a real joy to listen to.

I happen to really like the fusion of Americana, bluegrass, jazz, and country, and I think Heather Masse is an unusually talented musician and song writer. For reference, I also listen to Bill Frisell, Allison Krauss, Mindy Smith, Ella Fitzgerald, Jim Reeves, and Chet Baker. I recommend this album very highly for those similarly interested. I also recommend checking out Heather Masse's myspace page for information about her ongoing musical activities and new recordings.

In brief, get one for yourself and one for a friend.

Stopm Reading & Buy This CD!
... Because the sooner you do, the faster you can treat your ears to the wonderful sound of Heather's voice.

Heather is simply one of the best vocalists you're likely to hear anywhere. She makes each tune her own and has an uncanny talent for finding the most potent way to deliver any given lyric, pulling the listener right along with her--to the heart of a song!

For anyone who has ever heard Heather sing, purchasing this CD was probably the "no-brainer decision of the year". For those of you who haven't heard her yet, take the advice in the title of this review ... stop reading ... buy the CD ... you'll be very glad you did!!!!

Great CD, super nice mix of jazz, folk, country, and rock.

The arrangements are really interesting, the clarinet creates a really interesting moody feel that I've never heard before.

I'm listening to it all the time. Cop it. Feel it.

Weaves a Musical Spell
I can't stop playing this CD-- Is it the hypnotic vocals or the fact that every listen leaves me feeling so darn good? Each tune is a unique blend of jazzy folk that somehow rocks so hard. Well done!
