Jill Barber charms SXSW (UPDATE)

UPDATE: Here's some Canuck-style gossip for ya. It looks like love over here... unconfirmed but my research tells me that Lawrence and Barber are sweethearts - thus, the mushy tweets.

CBCRadio3 host Grant Lawrence has been totally crushing on Halifax singer Jill Barber all week at SXSW, via Twitter:
"GrantLCBCR3 Seeing sexy Jill Barber play at Canada House at 1245pm"
"GrantLCBCR3 Best legs in Austin: Jill Barber"
"GrantLCBCR3 Jill Barber crooning sweetly at and seductively at Habana Calle 6. Nice break from the cacophony! Like being at a resort!"
"GrantLCBCR3 Jill Barber doing Sam Cooke's "Cupid", which is Jay Malinowsky of Bedouin Soundclash's all-time fave song."
You can hear the lovely tune as Jill performed it for GO! on CBC Radio for Valentine's Day below. She starts at 1:06:18 but the whole show is great. If this flash player doesn't work, search "The Soul of Love" at this link.
