Barbara flirts with her sassy, sultry side through her music.  Her style, a simmering
blend of original blues, country, jazz, and folk rock, is evidenced in her debut album,
Ample Patience
. Her music radiates the confidence of a strong woman and the
passion of a born storyteller.

Barbara performs solo and with her band and is a member of ASCAP and NSAI, (Nashville Songwriters Association International).

“Barbara Garriel possesses a voice that is as rich and sensuous as red velvet.”

K. Moran, singer-songwriter, Ct

Ample Patience

Barbara’s debut CD features her original, inviting melodies and colorful lyrics.  Barbara plays guitar and sings lead and harmony vocals.

Some things folks are saying about Ample Patience:

“Barbara Garriel’s CD is very intimate and personal sounding, sassy and assured.  A bluesy, rootsy orientation is enhanced by the beautiful and sensitive production by Tom Prasada-Rao and Steve Young, well-known names in the singer-songwriter world. They have captured Barbara’s unpretentious, warm voice perfectly. A good listen.”

-Kenny Edwards, Musician, Singer-Songwriter & Producer
