Lara Herscovitch & Eric Kilburn
For some people, what they do and who they are two different things. Not so for Lara Herscovitch, an "extraordinarily talented" (smother.net) American songwriter, poet, singer, performer, and policy social worker. Lara's award-winning music is "pure musical poetry" (The Courier): highly original, modern folk with shades of blues, jazz, and pop. As the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal wrote, "Singer-songwriter Lara Herscovitch doesn't write songs just for the ears, but also for the heart and soul."
With a voice "clear and smooth like expensive liquor," she stands "above and beyond the pack" (Northeast Performer). Herscovitch is "a remarkable performer" (WSHU Public Radio). Former State Troubadour of Connecticut (2009-2010), Lara brings charm, authenticity, intelligence and a love of performing that immediately resonates with diverse audiences. She has appeared as a guest on A Prairie Home Companion with Garrison Keillor (American Public Media) and tours from Maine to Miami.
Lara also has extensive experience as a policy social worker, and has worked in the US, Latin America and Asia on behalf of disadvantaged individuals focusing on education, community development, and juvenile justice. These themes are woven throughout her music. As Acoustic Live in New York City wrote, "She possesses not only a huge reservoir of musical talent and a voice with a bell-like clarity, but a keen sense of global concern and a fierce intellect."
