Barbara Fasano

Barbara Fasano who has just released her fourth CD, “BUSY BEING FREE”, has been hailed as one of the nation’s most stunning and soulful singers. Frank Scheck of The New York Post raves, “Fasano is a gorgeous, soulful singer who has an actor’s intensity in whatever she sings.” Whether singing a song by Joni Mitchell or Harold Arlen or Cole Porter, Fasano takes her audience on a spellbinding, emotional musical journey. Her performances and recordings have won her three Backstage Bistro awards, three MAC awards and a New York Nightlife award. Fasano is a regular performer at New York’s most prestigious clubs. Together with her frequent musical partner, Eric Comstock, she was among the last singers to headline at the Algonquin’s legendary Oak Room supper club, with their show “HELLUVA TOWN: A New York Soundtrack”, which enjoyed an acclaimed and sold-out run and has toured the country. The New York Times’ Stephen Holden called it “exhilarating”, singling out Fasano as a “lyrically sensitive interpreter” and comparing her to one of her idols, Lena Horne. “Mr. Comstock and Ms. Fasano are turning the neighborhood into a hotbed of pleasure.”
