Jill BarberMetaphora Tour
with special guest Justin Nozuka
Roy Thomson Hall presents
Jill Barber has once again reinvented herself. One of Canada’s most recognized voices, Jill has sold over a half million albums over her career, earning multiple award nominations and performing throughout the world, from Guadalajara to Tokyo, Brisbane to Vancouver.
On her latest album, Metaphora, Barber boldly bursts into the world of contemporary pop music. The dramatic result is a Jill Barber like you've never heard before; a showcase of her power and vulnerability as both an artist and a woman. Evolving over the course of many albums from folk to jazz, R & B and pop, her success is defined not by genre, but by her undeniable songwriting chops and distinctive voice. Metaphora is a continuation of Barber's musical story that confidently tackles everything from issues of empowerment, sexual politics, the complications of love, and depression. It's introspective and personal. It's also a dance party.
Justin Nozuka began writing his own songs at the age of 12. His critically acclaimed debut album Holly was released in 2007 at the age of only 17. Since his debut, Justin has received an NRJ Award for ‘Duo of the Year’. He was also nominated for two JUNO awards. He has toured the world extensively and has played with artists such as Stevie Wonder, Mary J. Blige, John Mayer and Jason Mraz. Justin continues to impress with the recent release of his critically acclaimed Run To Waters featuring the single “All I Need”.
