Barbara started singing as a child and later, at the age of 10 she choosed the violin. With 13 years, at the gymnasium, she could join the classical orchestra there. As a teenager she got inspired by pop and rockmusic, later also by country and jazz. Barbara Wilde graduated at the WIAM, Academy for Contemporary Music, (Jazzschool), in Winterthur, Switzerland.
Barbara was born and raised on the shores of Lake Constance in Switzerland. Perhaps it’s her roots which explain why Barbara feels most comfortable around the element of water, be it a sparkling clear lake or the ocean where she feels inspired by the sound of churning and foaming waves and by breakers spilling and crashing onto the beach.
