Torch singer Jill Barber will bring her classic early 60's sound and style on a full band tour this spring in support of her US debut album 'Mischievous Moon,' which NPR recently said "honor[s] role models like Peggy Lee, Ella Fitzgerald and Billie Holiday while emerging as a 21st-century original."
