Barbara Nesbitt, a Georgia native, has found her home in music. Her life is reflected in the songs she writes which are about the ways, large and small, we abandon and seek that elusive safety of home. She has sung back-ups for Willie Nelson and Bob Weir and has performed/recorded with Berkley Hart, Tim Flannery, Dennis Caplinger, Freebo, Marc Ford, Cathryn Beeks Ordeal, Doug Pettibone, Gregory Page and many more. She has shared the stage / opened for artists such as Bonnie Raitt, Lyle Lovett, Robert Earl Keene, Lisa Loeb, Hootie & The Blowfish, Meredith Brooks, Nickel Creek, Jerry Garcia Band, Keller Williams, Widespread Panic, and more.
In late 2005, Nesbitt followed her heart to San Diego where, before long, she entered and won the San Diego Music Scene Cream of the Crop singer/songwriter competition and was nominated for best female singer for the inaugural H.A.T. Award. Inspired by her new surroundings and everything that came before, Nesbitt wrote the words and music for her debut album, “A Million Stories.” Her new album, Right As Rain, was released in 2017 and placed in the top ten female vocalists in the 2017 Austin Music Awards. She will be an Official Showcasing Artist at SXSW 2018 and heads out to tour Europe in the spring!.
“With a voice that is clear as a mountain meadow and emotive as Patsy Cline, Barbara Nesbitt sings songs of life’s journeys with fire grace and country soul” Ray Benson, Asleep At The Wheel
