Jungr created Kristalyn Records in 2012 in memory of her two sisters who died tragically young, Kristina and Carolyn. The first release captured her award-winning interpretations of Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen songs, Hard Rain
“The only word to describe her dramatic interpretations is revelatory –
I was open mouthed with astonishment.”
(New York Times, 2013)
Following the success of Hard Rain, Kristalyn started releasing Jungr’s back catalogue, from classic British 80s cabaret (Blue Devils)
to new beginnings Bare Again:
In pursuit of the perfect song, Jungr found herself joining Grammy and Emmy award-winner John McDaniel on Come Together , a brilliant innovative study of Beatles songs.
And Float Like a Butterfly, The Songs of Sting - also in collaboration with John McDaniel.
Barb's latest Kristalyn release Bob, Brel and Me is already being acclaimed - and was immediately on release, number 1 in iTunes Jazz Singers.
"The British singer finds confessional depths in Bob Dylan and Jacques Brel that no one else can see...but the big surprise is No One Else Could Ever Wear Your Shoes (co-written by Jungr with the late Michael Parker), that lingers longest"
(The Sunday Times)
