There is a particular place you get to without directions. you've been a thousand times but never once stayed past a moment. You pin the map each visit but it's always too dull to stick. You return to where you begin and aren't sure if you ever left. Is this
voodoo? A southern occultist juxtaposed in the middle of New York City, Breanna Barbara writes songs that make your soul dance, songs that make you question how many lives you've led, and if you ever lived at all.
"If you dig Alabama Shakes, there’s a good chance you’ll dig this too," says Brooklyn Vegan about Breanna Barbara, and for good reasons, her new album 'Mirage Dreams' was recorded and produced by their collaborator Andrija Tokic, who also worked with Hurray For The Riff Raff. "It’s swaggering, smoky blues rock, with fuzzed-out riffs, organs, and Breanna’s attitude-fueled voice leading the way," they also praised.
Breanna Barbara was born in Edina, Minnesota and raised in Bradenton, Florida. She began writing and performing songs at house shows and bars in St. Augustine, FL, and traveled around the north and southeast before settling in New York City. She performed at Modern Sky Helsinki & NY Festival, Hudson River Stage (NY), SXSW and has shared bills with Deer Tick, Margo Price, Boss Hog, Tess Parks, Wild Beasts, Deap Vally, Yak, Bo Ningen, and The Mystery Lights.
