Barbra Lica

Juno-nominated artist Barbra Lica is a fast-rising star in the Canadian Jazz scene. In the short period of time since her 2012 debut album release ("That’s What I Do"), she has been selected as one of Canada’s Top 5 Jazz singers and Top 35 Jazz artists under 35 by the CBC, as well as one of 5 up and coming jazz artists in Toronto by blogTO. "That’s What I Do" not only opened at #1 on iTunes Canada’s jazz chart but enjoyed wide release in Japan via Universal Music Japan.


Barbra's first U.S. performance in Nov. 2013 also proved highly memorable. Competing in the prestigious Sarah Vaughan International Jazz Voice Competition, Barbra placed first runner up, earning the approval of celebrity judges Al Jarreau, Gretchen Parlato, and Janice Siegel. Since then, Barbra has played in intimate spaces and large theatres across North America and Japan, opening for the likes of Christian McBride, Pat Metheny and Terrence Blanchard.

Barbra Lica is currently promoting her new 2017 JUNO-nominated album, “I’m Still Learning” with a coast-to-coast jazz festival tour of Canada and the U.S. including a stopover at legendary Jazz Club, Birdland NYC. "I'm Still Learning" introduces Barbra’s touring band of up-and-coming Jazz musicians from across Canada who will be joining Barbra on the road including ECMA nominee Will Fisher (drums), Tom Fleming (guitar, ukulele), Joel Visentine (piano, accordian) and Mark Godfrey (bass). "Lica smiles when she sings. You can hear it. When you see her in concert you'll see it too" - Tim Tamashiro (Host of TONIC on CBC Radio 2).
