Barb Sorensen presents adventurous, fun, and upbeat introspective lyrics with light humor in her original pop/rock concerts. Her songs contain hints of influences growing up in a German household with American music loving parents. Barb's music layers rhythms, styles, and pushes the boundaries of her influences with her non-conformist writing style. Hailing from the northwest suburbs of metropolitan Chicago, Barb has performed across Europe, Canada, the United States, and soon Australia and Asia. She was honored to represent the state of Illinois by winning the nomination by former state Senator Phillip Crane, for a performance at the prestigious Kennedy Center in Washington, DC. Barb also won the distinction of being selected from over 600 applicants, as one of 3 performing artists for the annual White House Christmas Tree Lighting Celebration in 2004. Barb has released 5 albums with a new one coming out in late 2019 featuring 10 tracks of all new adventurous lyrics and music.
