Learning to sing a new song

Sam Hoare meets Barb Jungr

Earlier this year, first year Pop student Samantha Jayne Hoare met esteemed singer Barb Jungr to get some advice on bringing something new to existing material and pick her brains on what it takes to make it in the industry.

With rave international reviews and two prestigious New York awards (2008 Nightlife Award for Outstanding Cabaret Vocalist and Best International Artist 2003 Backstage Award), Barb Jungr is renowned for her unique vocal style, interpretation of song and radical approach to arrangements. 

Samantha writes and performs original material and runs her own YouTube channel - alongside beginning her post as the Student Union's Communication Officer.
