“Julie Lyn Barber is clearly a highly gifted artist. Indeed, her portrayal of various influential female leaders from history—including Cleopatra, Indira Gandhi, Margaret Thatcher, and Hillary herself—displays an extraordinary accent range as well as obvious singing prowess.” (Laurence Brown, Nuvo, August 18, 2015)

(John Deredita, July 14, 2013)
