Jazz for the unabashedly uncool
Friday, Mar. 22, 2024

JUNO-nominated singer-songwriter Barbra Lica (pronounced Lee-Kah) “smiles when she sings. You can hear it. When you see her in concert, you’ll see it too” (CBC Radio). With a playful, soothing voice as sweet as maple syrup, the Canadian vocalist blends and bends elements of jazz, pop, and folk.
As easy as it sounds, Lica confesses, “I never really felt like I was cool enough to be a musician, but I never felt I could do anything else, either.” Her latest album, Imposter Syndrome, explores big dreams, bigger feelings, and the verifiably awkward. With light-hearted dedications to girl nerdom, gentle musings on empathy, and spirited odes to aging, Lica takes listeners on a rollercoaster ride of emotions.
Celebrate a joyful start to spring and breathe in the intoxicating melodies of Barbra Lica.
