Country | Singer-Songwriter
Barbara was born in Wisconsin; but has roots in Scotland, Texas, Oklahoma, Florida, and South Carolina. A traveler
her whole life, her love for music began while listening to her mother sing gospel songs and singing harmonies with
her two sisters. Painfully shy growing up, her music career didn’t begin until she was in her early 20s.
Barbara served as a Landing Support Specialist in the Marine Corps from 2005-2009. She was stationed in Okinawa,
Japan from 2006-2008 and served one tour in Iraq from August 2006-March 2007. During her tour in Iraq she
volunteered with Lioness Task Force - the Lioness are a female engagement team that were tasked with searching
females and children in order to maintain cultural sensitivities. She spent her last year in the military at Marine Corps
Air Station in Beaufort, SC and was honorably discharged in June 2009.
After getting out of the Marines, at 30 years old she started to teach herself to play guitar. She eventually made her
way to Colorado and began doing solo acoustic gigs in the Denver and surrounding area. She hopes to take music as
far as God will allow -- her country music, with its unique and angelic vocals, tells the story of a woman finding her
way in the world as she learns to believe in herself and chase her dreams.
