Barbra Lica is a JUNO-nominated, Canadian jazz and folk vocalist and songwriter of exceptional talent, and has been receiving accolades for her unique vocal ability that stresses subtlety, grace, and expression. Based in Toronto, Barbra’s performances have captivated audiences all over the world with her genuine warmth and engaging stage presence. Her work spans 6 albums and has amassed millions of streams. She recently won the CMRRA “Song of the Year” for The Ghost of Me, and is nominated for two Canadian Folk Music Awards.
In a world where almost everyone appears to have their public image and hashtags in order, Barbra’s latest album (2023) Imposter Syndrome, explores instead an identity still in flux. Equal parts playful and sombre, these songs flip unapologetically between genres, tempos, and production styles in search of what it means to be a flawed human with big dreams, bigger feelings, and a verifiably awkward social presence.

We honor the traditional lands in northwestern Vermont of the Abenaki (Wabanaki) Nation of Missisquoi, who have inhabited the Missisquoi River and the Betobagw (Lake Champlain) Valley for thousands of years. We are grateful for their stewardship of the land and animals occupying this beautiful place, in which we are fortunate to live and work. We uplift, honor, and speak the traditional names of the land and people to remind this community and other visitors that these peoples did, and do still, exist.
