Barbra Lica promotes her new album, Kissing You,and celebrates old favourites with producer Lou Pomanti on piano and bassist Ross MacIntyre.

Barbra Lica is an artist who defies the stereotypes of the tortured and heartbroken jazz or pop singer by remaining resolutely upbeat and optimistic. This mandate permeates her just-released second album, Kissing You, a collaborative effort with noted producer/pianist Lou Pomanti that was introduced to the Toronto public in Dec. 2014 before a sold-out audience (1,100) at Koerner Hall. Barbra’s career took flight with the 2012 release of her debut album, That’s What I Do, opening at #1 on iTunes Canada’s jazz chart. Then in Nov. 2013, Barbra placed first runner up at the prestigious Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Voice Competition, earning the approval of celebrity judges Al Jarreau, Gretchen Parlato, and Janice Siegel. She has since performed extensively on Ontario’s jazz series and festival circuit including Jazz FM 91’s annual Jazz Lives concert among jazz greats Pat Metheny, Terence Blanchard, and Bill Charlap. Barbra will now promote Kissing You with tour dates across Canada and the U.S.

“Barbra Lica is a dazzling performer who has talent to burn and vocals that will knock you over.”
Ross Porter – CEO & President, JAZZ.FM91

“Early on, Barbra found her style and it is a beauty. Any musical trust that you place in her will not be disappointed.”
Kerry Stratton – Conductor/Music Director, Toronto Concert Orchestra

Barbra Lica is a gem in every sense – her talent is rare, it’s the real thing and she sparkles!”
David Basskin – CEO & President, The Canadian Musical Reproduction Rights Agency

“I’d describe her as Canada’s Stacey Kent (one of the world’s most successful jazz singers today). Lica smiles when she sings. You can hear it. When you see her in concert you’ll see it too. In a word: refreshing.”
Tim Tamashiro – Host, “Tonic” CBC Radio

“Barbra Lica’s voice is infectious.”
Greg Wells – LA Music Producer: Jaime Cullum, Katie Perry, Barbra Streisand
