New Music From Canadian Chanteuse Jill Barber


Jill Barber has become renowned for writing songs that evoke feelings of a bygone era.

At first listen, what sets Jill Barber apart is her distinctive voice. But it’s her ability to write an immediately memorable song that has made her one of Canada’s most recognizable artists.

Barber released the video for “Mercy,” the second single from her upcoming album  Metaphora out on June 22, 2018.


The song was inspired by a weekend spent with a friend struggling with depression. It’s a  reminder that “if you’re loved you’re not alone,” she stated. “There are people that are standing with you and want to see you get better. It’s really a love song but also I’m trying to add my voice to a growing chorus of voices trying to remove stigma from mental illness, trying to put it out there in the world so we can all be more connected to one another.”
