Barb Jungr - If Not For You

Barb Jungr (born 9 May 1954 in Rochdal) is an English singer-songwriter, composer and writer, of Czech and German parentage. She is perhaps best known as a chansonnier, or singer of chansons—in the sense of classic, lyric-driven French songs; in the broader sense of European songs in the cabaret style; and in the even broader sense of a diverse range of songs interpreted in this style.

A song-stylist incorporating jazz and blues, her approach often includes radical re-readings of known writers as well as original material. Jungr was awarded a Nightlife Award in 2008 for "Outstanding Cabaret Vocalist" and appears regularly in New York.
