âBabeâs voice is as appealing as her name is unique."
- Canada AM
Born on Vancouver Island in British Columbia, Babe spent many years on the move with her family living on various Air Force Bases throughout Canada and Germany. Her love of music began at a young age but it wasnât until her mid-twenties that she joined her first band and discovered her true passion! Playing in a variety of bands ranging from pop/rock, jazz and R&B over the years in Canada and London, England, Babe honed her craft. After studying the jazz/commercial music program at a Vancouver college, she began writing her own music.
One of the best-selling Indie recording artists around, Babeâs music has been described as honest, rootsy and real, fitting powerful stories to thoughtful music with craftswomanlike precision. Experiencing Babeâs engaging personality in concert is a treat, and discovering her playful and keen sense of humour is always a delight. The Vancouver-based singer, songwriter and guitarist has drawn comparisons to such diverse talents as Bonnie Raitt,Sheryl Crow and Chrissie Hynde. But Babe Gurr is one diamond who shines with her own kind of light, maintaining her unique acoustic roots sound and style.
Keeping with the tradition of Babeâs previous discs, her latest collection of songs on her new CD Chocolate Lilly features a powerful yet sensitive singer, with material to match. The Spring/2008 release has a fresh, yet familiar sound and will take the listener to many places. Babeâs warm but powerful voice is beautifully showcased with the stripped down sounds on this album, a blend of roots, pop and blues.
Chocolate Lilly features a wide array of some of Vancouverâs most talented musicians including Steve Dawson, Rob Becker, Elliot Polsky, Rick Hopkins, Nick Apivor, Ian Cameron and Geoff Gibbons along with her core band members; Lisa Simons (stand up bass), Tom Neville (violin) and Lee Worden (guitar/dobro). All of the songs on the CD were penned by Babe Gurr with the exception of her roots-based version of the Ray Charles cover Unchain My Heart.
Babe has been the support act for various artists throughout the past years, including Amanda Marshall, Amy Sky, Colin Hay (from Men at Work), J. Gaines & The Soul Attorneys, Luka Bloom, Barney Bentall and Grapes of Wrath and has headlined at numerous festivals including Torontoâs Harbourfont Music Series, Victoria Folkfest, First Night, Mission Folk Music Festival, Vancouver Island MusicFest, Salmon Arm Roots & Blues Music Festival, Filberg Festival and Islands Folk Festival. Her tunes have been licensed for various shows including the U.S. FOX series Higher Ground which has brought her music to audiences worldwide. Babe appeared on the television show Big Sound, playing an avant-garde lounge singer and has been a guest on many national shows such as Canada AM and The Jim Byrnes Show.
Playing some of the most popular and prestigious concert halls in Canada spanning from Vancouver Island to the Maritimes and U.S. dates in New York and Seattle, Babe Gurrâs name is familiar to fans who appreciate finely
crafted songs performed with sincerity.
