Tabby Barbera is a musician and singer-songwriter. She started by hitting the folk scene in her native South London armed with a banjo, and later gravitating towards Berlin, dipping her toes into the world of synthesisers and music production. The name ‘Barbera’ being a purposeful misspelling of her middle name Barbara, simultaneously pays homage to a childhood growing up on Hanna Barbera cartoons and a nod to her background as an illustrator. Reference to this can be found with her newest single “When the Aliens Invade”, (set for release on the 25th of September 2020) having been inspired by a line from the straight-to-VHS “Scooby Doo and the Alien Invaders” from the year 2000. Themes of nostalgia, innocence and the supernatural paired with electric and slide guitar, synths and soft vocals create an atmospheric swirl of sound, paired with a distinct narrative.
All visual artwork and music is created, written, produced and recorded by Tabby in her studio. To follow will be the full EP, released on the 2nd of October 2020, and once restrictions regarding Covid-19 allow, a return to previously scheduled gigs in Cologne and London. Her previous release ‘Blood Oranges (2018) is available to stream online.
