A ONE-OF-A-KIND VOICE

Lara Herscovitch is a gem of a modern American troubadour. A singer-songwriter-poet-performer-author and policy social worker, she writes masterful modern folk music, sings and leads with authenticity, integrity, humor and heart, and delivers performances that inspire, inform, uplift and entertain. As described in The Boston Globe, she brings "...a luminous voice and a buoyant stage presence... big-hearted lyrics embrace the sum of life... Herscovitch's music blows on the embers of a lagging spirit or a dormant creative life." Sound Waves Magazine described her music as “expertly written prose… songwriting at its best… good for your ears AND your soul.” Acoustic Live in New York City added, “She possesses not only a huge reservoir of musical talent and a voice with a bell-like clarity, but a keen sense of global concern and a fierce intellect... It might seem too good to be true, but true it is.”
