Lara Herscovitch is “a remarkable performer” (WSHU), “one hell of a find” (New Haven Advocate). A unique and charismatic songwriter and performer, Lara’s music is an original and skillful blend of contemporary acoustic/folk, pop, and Latin styles. “Delicious” (, smart, poetic and witty, Lara “masterfully” ( merges soulful melodies with “perfect wordcrafting” (New Haven Advocate) and “keen intelligence” (The Chronicle). She is engaging and “inspiring” (Manchester VT Journal), “fresh and invigorating” (Music Morsels), with a voice “clear and smooth like expensive liquor” (Northeast Performer).

“Herscovitch is polished and cool, and swings convincingly from moody to upbeat, in English and Spanish” (Record-Journal). Her songs cover a broad range of topics from personal to global/sociological; “the more you listen, the more you will like what she does” (Green Man Review); it is “pure musical poetry” (The Courier). Her third CD, Juror Number 13 (2006), is“among the best folk releases of the year and possibly many years past.” (Folk & Acoustic Music Exchange), with her “great and refreshing sound” (Acoustic Café).
