Jill Barber has once again reinvented herself. On her latest album, Metaphora, Barber boldly bursts into the world of contemporary pop music. The dramatic result is a Jill Barber like you’ve never heard before; a showcase of her power and vulnerability as both an artist and a woman. Evolving over the course of many albums from folk to jazz, R & B and pop, her success is defined not by genre, but by her undeniable songwriting chops and distinctive voice. Metaphora is a continuation of Barber’s musical story that confidently tackles everything from issues of empowerment, sexual politics, the complications of love, and depression. It’s introspective and personal. It’s also a dance party.

It was a mutual friend and musician, Hannah Georgas who introduced Jill to Ryan Guldemond, the enigmatic lead singer of Mother Mother. Serendipitously, Ryan lives just a few blocks away on the same East Vancouver street as Barber, and they began having regular songwriting sessions. Guldemond co-wrote four of Metaphora‘s nine songs, including the instantly catchy lead single,”Girls Gotta Do“, a hook-filled and very timely call to arms that aims to “challenge the patriarchal status quo, as we usher in a new era of equality” says Barber.
