NEW ALBUM

YOU’RE FINE – Available now!

Barbra Lica is a fast-rising Canadian jazz vocalist and songwriter, and has been receiving accolades for her unique vocal ability that stresses subtlety and grace. Based in Toronto, Barbra’s live shows have captivated audiences all over North America with her genuine warmth and confident stage presence.

Hot on the heels of her 2017 Juno-nominated recording, ‘I’m Still Learning’, Barbra Lica is back with her fifth and most ambitious offering to date – ‘You’re Fine’ (November 2018). Having spent the last couple of years touring clubs and festivals, Barbra found herself in Nashville where she was blown away by the sounds of old country and western swing. She dedicated the next year to song writing trips between Nashville and Toronto, collaborating with new songwriters and work-shopping with her band to find a new space for contemporary jazz, one that borrows and fuses elements of American country music.

‘You’re Fine’ covers all the bases: poignant, introspective, tongue in cheek and heart breaking. This genre-bending project breaks every rule while searching for commonalities between musical palettes, human experiences and two sides of one border. Recorded at Addiction Sounds Studios in the heart of Nashville, this represents Barbra’s second production with in-demand Canadian producer/bassist Marc Rogers. It also features Barbra’s full band of rising talents from Toronto alongside legendary guest artists Paul Franklin (Vince Gill, Mark Knopfler, Shania Twain) on the pedal steel guitar and multi-instrumentalist Wanda Vick Burchfield (Taylor Swift, Trisha Yearwood, Jason Aldean). ‘You’re Fine’ is a musical event not to be missed

“It starts and ends with Lica’s voice. It’s a bright, vibrant contralto one minute, laconic and syrupy the next when she lets a phrase die on the vine and trail off”

– Frank De Blase, Journalist, City Newspaper

New Video Drop! Here's a live rendition of "Drive" with special guest Michael Eckert on pedal steel. This was one of my favourite tunes on the album because it's about the most tumultuous relationship in my life: music. I'd bet many entrepreneurial sorts feel the same way. Well I say, keep at it till they catch you and put you away.

Dale Sood - Director
Tyler Emond - Audio Recording/Mixing
