Neo-soul/gospel/group SENSERE, groomed and promoted by former Sony VP, Eddie Pugh.

With a touch of hip-hop, jazz and neo- soul, SENSERE looks and performs like The Roots (dapper & funky) with a horn section like EWF and the lyrical spirit of Mary Mary!

Barbara's solo singing career was preceded by a stint as a vocalist in the popular Portland, Oregon band, Pepe and the Bottle Blondes. The group appeared with the Oregon Symphony Pops, the Britt Festival in Jackson, Oregon, and in venues throughout Oregon as well as in Reno and Seattle. In 2002, Barbara went solo, and since then has been performing throughout the Pacific Northwest with regular engagements in such premier venues as Jimmy Mak's, the Liberty Theater in Astoria, the Heathman and Benson Hotels, and the Allison. She has also appeared at Portland's Cathedral Park Jazz Festival and the Portland Jazz Festival.
The concept for Rock Me Sweet came from Barbara's dear friend Tom Nunan, an executive producer of many films and TV shows including the Oscar-winning “Best Picture,” Crash. Tom suggested taking rock anthems originally recorded by male artists and slowing the tempos down to give them a smoky torch ballad feel. "Once we brought the tempos down, the emotions and stories contained in the lyrics emerged so clearly. I began to love these songs more and more, and to gain new admiration for the artists who conceived them,” she says.
