‘Presley's lush sentimentality goes out of the window: in its place is an art-song sensibility tinged with cultured R&B.' The Sunday Times
‘One of Europe's most intriguing and intelligent interpreters of the contemporary song.' Jazz at Ronnie Scott's
‘You'll find a depth in these songs never previously imagined.' Time Out
‘Jungr could teach Madonna a thing or two about how to convey sensuality through words alone.' The Times
Some of the greatest song writing talents of the fifties, sixties and seventies wrote for the legendary singer Elvis Presley. Barb Jungr, regarded as Britain's foremost chansonnier and song stylist takes these songs and embarks on a journey through love, loneliness, obsession and finally, faith. Love Me Tender is a tribute to Elvis Presley in the real sense of the word. She is not impersonating him. These tracks are real covers - deconstructions and reinterpretations - making the listener forget the original. Love Me Tender falls into the dark sound world usually inhabited by Nick Cave and Tom Waits; unforgettable and highly original.
