Love Me Tender
Some of the greatest song writing talents of the fifties, sixties and seventies wrote for the legendary singer Elvis Presley. Barb Jungr, regarded as Britain's foremost Chansonnier and song stylist takes these songs and embarks on a journey through love, loneliness, obsession and finally, faith.
Barb Jungr's new album Love Me Tender is a tribute to Elvis Presley in the real sense of the word.
She is not impersonating him. These tracks are real covers - deconstructions and reinterpretations.
Love Me Tender falls into the dark world usually inhabited by Nick Cave and Tom Waits.
Barb Jungr was recently voted in the Top 10 Cabaret Shows of 2004 in Time Out New York.
the finest cabaret singer in recent times, Barb Jungr shows real soul: quirky, intelligent cabaret music of the highest order.
