"…Her voice and performance style captivated right away.
She truly stands out in a crowd." -Valley Folk
“Pure musical poetry” (The Courier), Lara Herscovitch’s music is an original blend of modern acoustic/folk with blues, jazz, and pop influences. With her voice “clear and smooth like expensive liquor,” she stands “above and beyond the pack” (Northeast Performer). Herscovitch is “a remarkable performer” (WSHU Public Radio), “a rising talent who is truly someone to watch for” (Acoustic Live in NYC).
THE CURRENT PROJECT
Lara’s new release, Four Wise Monkeys (produced by John Jennings) showcases her ever-growing vision and skill. This relevant, meaningful recording is about facing adversity and undergoing transformation — personal, social, political. Many songs speak to one of our biggest civil rights challenges: the U.S. has only 5% of the world’s population, and a staggering 25% of its prisoners. The meaning of the proverbial three wise monkeys is debated. When they see no evil, hear no evil and speak no evil, some believe they are stopping evil; others believe they are perpetuating it. Their intention in her song (and CD) is clear: Take a stand. Make a choice. Pick a side. Do something. Lara says, “my hope is that we each do something to create a better world. The world needs us, and we need each other. But for the grace go I and all.”
