“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

Maternity leave? What maternity leave!?! haha...I'm happy to announce a live in-person show hosted by the Aurora Cultural Centre on Friday November 5th - my first since February 2020! None of my dresses fit at the moment and I'm not entirely sure who's going to babysit but I'm looking forward to it immensely. Join us! Resistance is futile.

Dear Friends,

As I post this, I can see the amazing promo photo that Dale Sood took of me only 5 months ago in the background. Since then, I've come to experience all the joys of this little thing called pregnancy. Let me tell you, if pregnancy were a casino, I'd be deep in the red. All the "natural things" that approximately 50% of pregnant women experience? Well I've rolled for ALL of them. Tonight, come see my one and only concert performed with completely numb hands and feet, limited air supply, unbelievable nausea, a clicking jaw - how is that a thing? - and a rather charming waddle as I travel from centre stage to piano and back again. Don't get me wrong! I'm not trying to make any excuses here: we did pretty well all things considered! Hopefully you can read more about it in my upcoming autobiography, "Not Dying, Just Pregnant". Hahahah..okay jokes aside, we go live at 8:30 PM ET. Thanks to City Hall Live for putting this on, to the lovely band joining me on stage (Joel Visentin, Tom Fleming, Mark Godfrey, Will Fisher - Musician) and to Canis Major Music for setting up all the necessary admin while accommodating my brain fog. See you soon: https://fb.me/e/2lJDfIuAu
