Tom & Barb
Veteran singer/songwriters on the Milwaukee music scene for 18 years, Tom & Barb Webber were winners of a WAMI: Best Folk Artist 2003 and a WAMI CD Roulette contest. The music performed by Barb and Tom Webber as a duo or with their band Fair Webber is best described as Americana / Roots music.
Barb, the consummate storyteller, writes the lyrics and melody while Tom arranges them instrumentally. Tom’s voice carries the rumble of the Texas Panhandle and Barb’s the clarity of pure sunlight. The contrast is stunning and captivating.

“There is a kind of warmth in this sound that's immediate and front room more than back porch. There is a deepening and widening embrace of the various strains of American folk, country, and, in a sense, music from a previous century, all while remaining contemporary. Only Way Home is the true next step for this pair and their band as they stretch out musically and Barb Webber does so lyrically.” Rated 4 out of 5 stars.” - Thom Jurek, All Music Guide
There is great comfort in being with the Webbers by simply playing their music. Barb writes from her heart and head, and the songs are both personal and universal. They linger and become part of you. When Barb's angelic voice harmonizes with Tom's earthy singing, you literally have heaven and earth.
