Lara Herscovitch is “captivating” (Smother.net). “A remarkable performer” (WSHU Profiles in Folk), “one hell of a find” (New Haven Advocate). A unique and engaging singer-songwriter, Lara’s music is an original blend of contemporary acoustic/folk with pop, Latin, jazz, and blues influences. “Delicious” (Indie-Music.com), smart, poetic and witty, Lara “masterfully” (Womenfolk.net) merges soulful melodies with “perfect wordcrafting” (New Haven Advocate) and “keen intelligence” (The Chronicle). She is “inspiring” (Manchester VT Journal), “fresh and invigorating” (Music Morsels), with a voice “clear and smooth like expensive liquor” (Northeast Performer). Newly selected as Connecticut State Troubadour (2009-2010); “a still-rising talent who is truly someone to watch for.” (Acoustic Live)
"…Her voice and performance style had me captivated right away. She truly stands out in a crowd of rising folksingers" (Valley Folk). “The more you listen, the more you will like what she does” (Green Man Review); it is “pure musical poetry” (The Courier). Her latest CD, Through A Frozen Midnight Sky, is “simple magic” (Westport Magazine); “it’s rare to come across poets able to inject such an achingly human and knowing warmth into their work... It’s obvious that this musician-composer has hit her stride, that her star’s still rising” (Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange).
