Timeless. A voice, once heard, forever recognized. Like Edith Piaf, or Patsy Cline. Not that Jill Barber sounds like them, but she has the kind of voice they had. Unmistakable. Somehow so connected to the heart, that the song comes clear and true to the listener, unaffected, unsullied by fashion, untouched by commercial necessity. It is a voice that stops time. And the songs. Great songs need an underlying truth, even wisdom. Jill’s songs don’t sound “written”. They sound like standards, like they were always there, waiting for her voice to take full flight. For those that believe they don’t write songs like they used to, there is new hope for old romantics: On Chances, Jill Barber takes a giant step forward from the typical confines of the singer-songwriter and delivers an album of original, fully orchestrated songs that are often mistaken for classics. The moment the music starts you are taken back to a time where music was romantic, where it dwelled in beauty, and was full of life. With Chances, Jill has aligned herself with a talented array of performers in capturing the classic sound of a bygone era. Outside Music is proud to reissue Chances for its 15th Anniversary, pressed on limited edition Orchid coloured vinyl. 1. Chances 2. Be My Man 3. Old Flame 4. Oh My My 5. Take It Off Your Mind 6.
