Barbara Ann Aguirre, a Miami native, displayed an early aptitude for music, mastering the piano by ear during her formative years. Her passion led her to private lessons by 2nd grade, and by 4th grade, she was already the Church pianist at her private school.
A chance encounter with a fashion designer in Miami marked the beginning of Barbara's modeling journey at the age of 13, which eventually took her to New York. During her time in the fashion world, she ventured into guitar playing, even securing endorsements from prominent guitar companies. Concurrently, Barbara honed her craft at HB Studio with notable mentors Utta Hagen and Herbert Bergoff, studying musical theatre, scene work, voice, and ballet.
Relocating to Los Angeles, Barbara delved into songwriting and music video production, achieving chart success on the Top40 as an independent artist. Notably, her talents caught the attention of director JD Labou, who took her under his wing and guided her as a protege. She furthered her education at UCLA, where she pursued a degree in film and television directing.
In addition to her artistic pursuits, Barbara shared her expertise by teaching musical theatre, voice, and modeling to young professionals aged 4 to 16 at Art Of The Dance in North Hollywood. Her passion for music led her to a contract with Windswept Music in Beverly Hills, and she embarked on tours across the United States and Japan.
Barbara's music journey extended beyond borders, with single releases making waves in France, Germany, and Turkey. Her creative endeavors culminated in the release of the full-length album titled "Ode To My Freaks," garnering attention both in the USA and Europe.
