Former CT State Troubadour, she leads with authenticity, integrity, humor and heart. Her themes include stories of misfits and underdogs, connection and courage, love and loss, hardship and hope, resilience and transformation. As WNPR Public Radio's Colin McEnroe observed, "Lara reminds us that music can be heroic when it springs from a strong heart. Walt Whitman would recognize his own soul in her expansive American vision, and there really is no higher compliment I can pay an artist."
The wisdom in Lara’s artistry comes from her decades of humanitarian work in the U.S., Latin America, Asia and Africa, in education, community development and justice system reform. This breadth & depth of experience resonates throughout her music: as MS's Daily Journal summarized, “Singer-songwriter Lara Herscovitch doesn’t write songs just for the ears, but also for the heart and soul.”
