Barbie Almalbis is doing a new album which she said is different from what she used to write.
As a singer-songwriter, her music is characterized by a rather quirky, but endearing vocal style, and guitar work. The difference of her new, all-original album from her previous albums is that it reflected with the changes in the music scene as well as in her life, which she gets to balance with her family life and career.
Formerly the lead singer of the bands Hungry Young Poets and Barbie’s Cradle, she pursued a solo career in 2005 marked by her self-titled compilation album, “Barbie: The Singles.”
Barbie is married to Martin Honasan (the son of the Sen. Gringo Honasan). The couple has two kids, Stina and Liam. Both kids, she said, are musically inclined. Aside from music, her kids also play outdoor sports like basketball and ping pong.
