Barbra Lica – You’re Fine

Up and coming Canadian singer/songwriter Barbra Lica has been quietly establishing herself on the jazz music scene. Working out of Toronto, Barbra has used that signature voice of hers to distance herself from all the pretenders. Obviously not feeling any pressure to follow up her 2017 Juno nominated I’m Still Learning, she has in short order released her latest album, You’re Fine. It is her fifth album and features a newish sound. A trip to Nashville and the city’s music left a mark so there is a slight country twang to be found. It is another addition to the ever expanding repetoire of what makes up contemporary jazz. Recorded in Nashville, lyrically the songs for the most part cover the typical topics of love and heartbreak. What sound is better to illustrate the human condition and emotions than country music?! For good measure, a little bit of folk is also blended in. All this also proves that being ambitious is not out of her wheelhouse. To help her achieve her lofty goals Barbra has some really good musicians featured in her band including well-known and respected steel pedal guitarist Paul Franklin, who has played with Vince Gill, Toby Keith and Dire Straits.
