'Barbara Garriel writes smart, sassy, sexy, and satirical songs that instantly grab the audience. Her voice is the voice of every woman. Her songwriting is without clutter and her voice effortlessly carries with it a lightness and joy that many of us have to spend years and years honing. Everyone is smiling when Barbara is playing. Her wonderful presence is joyful and confident and contagious!' Joe Iadanza, Host - Canvas Gallery Open Mic, Singer/Songwriter Stella Davie of Laundry Room Music writes: 'Barbara's songs are like lemon drops. They're fun, they're sweet, with a little bit of an edge that is strangely reminiscent of something from long ago that you're glad to have back in your life.' Besides writing songs and performing, Barbara writes children's books and offers author/assembly presentations and writing workshops at schools and libraries. Some of her titles include: I Know a Shy Fellow Who Swallowed a Cello, Wolves and Their Ways, Underwater Cities - the Coral Reefs, and Endangered Sea Life.
