My freatest hope is that It ends up becoming the soundtrack to some perfect romance, or at the very least a great cocktail party,' says Jill Barber of her new album, 'Fool's Gold,'. Jill aka 'Canada's Sweetheart' is a two-time Juno Award Nominee and Montreal Jazz Fest headliner whose last album hit #1 on the itunes Jazz charts, and landed her a national segment with NPR. She has collaborated with Josh Ritter, Ron Sexsmith, and Kris Kristofferson has called her a 'damn good songwriter.' She also published a children's book, entitled 'Music Is for Everyone.' 'Fool's Gold' explores every nook of Jill's musical history: sultry torch songs, Hank Williams inspired ballads, an homage to the Golden Era of the Brill Building, Motown and Beyond. Lead single 'Broken for Good' ventures into the early days of Motown with it's strong backbeat, horns, a driving bass line and immediate Pop appeal. She channels Patsy Cline on 'The Careless One,' a bittersweet Western, full of resignation and sorrow. As Jill puts it, 'it hurts me to sing it, just a little. But that's how I know it is a keeper.' The record was produced in Toronto by longtime collaborators and bandmates Les Cooper and Drew Jurecka.
