Barbara sounds like a zany, mystic Carole King. Her songs are like her native Minnesota weather: warm friendly to cool jazzy to thunderous rowdy to just plain gorgeous.

Album Notes
Barbara McAfee is a Twin Cities-based singer/songwriter whose songs are flavored with jazz, blues, gospel, and Celtic influences. What they have in common is her clear-eyed reflections on the human experience, exquisite lyrics, sassy wit, and piano-infused arrangements. When Barbara serves them up in her clear, strong voice, they go straight to the heart.

She got her start as a jazz singer in nightclubs in the mid-80s, then started writing her own songs during her father’s final illness in 1991. Through a long series of self-produced concerts, Barbara discovered her own voice, both as a singer and a songwriter.

Blending her interest in organizational and individual transformation, Barbara has brought her music to such corporate clients as Best Buy, YMCA, Wells Fargo as well as numerous wellness events, colleges, and private functions.

She has produced 4 CDs as a (fiercely) independent producer working with the finest musicians in the Twin Cities.

Her mission is:
I sing with the sweet breath of God
And I dance on a living planet
My body is holy water
And I dream a world made new

You can hear her sing it on her website: www.barbaramcafee.com.

Britches is Barbara's first recording and includes the fine piano work of Diane Benjamin. The songs cover a wide range -- from a wacky blues in praise of Velveeta Cheese (Ethnic Food) to a hauntingly beautiful Celtic chant (Promise). There are even two poems with musical accompaniment.

I bought this album for the spiritual offering on track 12 - Promise - which is very beautiful and which I can't stop singing.
I am pleased with several other tracks but the album is still very new to me.
