Babbie Green is a passionate story teller. Whether as a singer-songwriter at the piano or an actor on the stage, she creates characters and situations in which audiences see themselves.
Winner-of the first Johnny Mercer Songwriting Award and the 1994 Back Stage Bistro Award for Outstanding Songwriter, and a former Master Teacher at the Eugene O'Neill Cabaret Symposium, her songs are in the repertoire of cabaret artists here and abroad and on numerous recordings.
In addition to her own cabaret act, she has appeared in many ASCAP sponsored events around the country, including concerts at UCLA's Schoenberg Hall, the Smithsonian Institute, Carnegie Hall, the Chicago Humanities Festival, and in the noted 92nd Street Y (N.Y.C.) series, "Lyrics and Lyricists", as one of the "New Breed", as well as in the Mabel Mercer Cabaret Conventions on both coasts.
Among the artists featured on her first CD, "IN NOBODY'S SHADOW" (soon to be re-released by LML MUSIC arid considered "...a contemporary cabaret treasure chest") are Margaret Whiting, Andrea Marcovicci and Michael Feinstein, as well as her own cabaret act partners, Kirsten Benton and Laurie McIntosh. The trio of Green, Benton and McIntosh have recorded a new double CD set, "SOLDIERS OF THE HEART.. More Songs of Babbie Green". The three women have performed together and individually on cabaret and concert stages across the country; in theatre productions; on screens large and small, and on recordings. Benton was heard as the voice of Pocohontas on radio and television and in Disney's WORLD ON ICE tour. McIntosh has been referred to by critics as "the Carol Burnett of the 90's".
Michael Feinstein on the subject of Babbie Green : "The songs of Babbie Green are wonderfully crafted miniatures, brimming with wit and wonder. She is a great talent with a rare and keen interpretive ability. In short I love her work."
