YOU’RE FINE – Available now!

Barbra Lica is a Canadian singer 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’. 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.

“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

‘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’s tonight and I’m so excited!!! I also have no idea how it turned out so I’ll be watching along with you and likely squirming every time I make a mistake. I already know I messed up a lyric somewhere!! If you can make it, please please write to me and lemme know what you think. I’d love to know if any of the newer songs are working for you guys.

You can watch live at 8 pm using this link:

Psssst... mark your calendars for an actual concert in July with me n’ all the boys (at a safe distance of course). We’re taking over the Imperial Pub with support from Downtown Yonge BIA and it’s going to feel glorious. Any requests? Can’t promise we’ll find a way to rehearse but hey, if it’s something we already know! Haha...

NEW POST ALERT! You won't believe it, but I finally finished that demo with all the audio recordings you guys sent me. After literal months of fighting with my new home recording set-up, you can find a streamable link to "Hello From My Basement" on my blog:

I hope you enjoy it and please please send me any and all feedback you have. It's my first time ever producing a song and my second time posting on my blog. Maybe next month I'll tell you about my Russian Kettlebell training. I just upgraded to 16 kg and I feel like a dangerous beast. Rawr.

Special thanks to: Tom Fleming (guitars), Curtis Graham Nowosad (drums), Ross MacIntyre (bass) and Bobby B Morales Hobart (mixing engineer/teacher of all things)
