Lara Herscovitch




Usually the first glowing comments one hears from Lara's audience after a concert is about her great voice (well, sometimes this is second to comments about her hair). As Northeast Performer called it, "clear and smooth like expensive liquor." Not everyone knows she also loves - really, loves - to create and sing harmonies that truly lift up a song and its meaning. 



Because Lara is normally playing solo or fronting her band, listeners don't always know she is also a skilled percussionist, live and in-studio. 

Her recent studio work has been in New York City, Boston, Rhode Island and Connecticut. Please reach out directly - lara [at] laraherscovitch [dot] com to discuss your project, timing and rates. 


"Lara could not have been more professional in her approach to recording harmony vocals for Joanne Lurgio's recording. As Joanne's producer Lara hit all the marks...on time...well rehearsed..listened to direction..made changes easily if needed and spot on harmonies.  You can't ask for more ." -Jack Gauthier, Lakewest Recording

"In addition to being a powerful singer-songwriter that I have long admired, Lara Herscovitch is also a natural, versatile percussionist who adds just the right touch; a creative, beautiful harmony singer who knows can deftly support any song; and a warm, empathic human being who is fun to be around! It's always an honor to collaborate and perform with Lara and she gets my highest recommendation!"
-Sharon Goldman

"Lara arrived for her vocal recording session fully prepared, calm, and on time.  She blended her voice into mine with generosity, skill, and a sophisticated sense of harmony.  She had great ideas and also took direction seamlessly.  Her harmonies took songs on my new album, 'Dog Year,'  to another level."  -Larry Kolker


"Lara added harmonies on my Rise From the Storm album. I was so impressed with Lara’s unique vocal choices. Her notes are clear and her wide range lends itself to beautiful voicings. I clearly remember a 'goosebump' moment when Lara’s voice rose to the most unexpected note; it was a beautiful blend, beyond perfect, better than I imagined in my own head. The producer and I just looked at each other with a 'Holy Cow, Did YOU hear THAT?' look. That is a gift. Thank you, Lara Herscovitch." -Joanne Lurgio
