Vancouver's Jill Barber is set to release her 6th album, "Fool's Gold" on June 17th in Canada on the Outside Music label. The album was recorded in Toronto, six months after Jill and husband, CBC personality Grant Lawrence, welcomed their first child Joshua. "I won't try to kid you about how hard it is to be a new mother, and work at the same time," says Barber. "Time becomes the new economy. For that reason, much of the making of this record came down to instinct. If it felt right, we just went with it. No second-guessing. It's a good way to make music. I also put a lot of trust in my producers." "Fool's Gold" was produced by Les Cooper and Drew Jurecka. Les produced Jill's albums "For All Time," "Chances," and "Mischievous Moon" while Jurecka was behind the board of Jill's French language album "Chansons." Both are in Jill's touring band. "Nobody knows me better musically than Les and Drew. I've made music with these guys for years, played countless shows, spent hours living and breathing music in the studio, on the road, both on and off the record. We speak the same musical short-hand." The lead single, "Broken For Good," harkens back to the glory days of Motown. "What I love about the Motown sound is that musically, it knows exactly how to deliver a message; with a strong backbeat, punctuated by horns, a driving bass line and an immediate pop appeal. It will ultimately get inside your soul but first it'll just make you want to move your body. I wanted to write some killer songs with this approach and give myself and my band a chance to rock a little." And why the title of "Fool's Gold"? "In life we're always looking for the real thing. And when it comes to love, we're all fools. Something shiny and new can turn to brass. Still, we bet everything on the hope that one day our prize will deliver. Rich is the fool who stumbles upon fortune in love."
