Atmospheric, futuristic folk cinema; Lara Yule Singh's new musical direction is not just melodies and hooks, but subtly theatrical, sci-fi song tales, whispered and wailed in Lara's bold yet vulnerable way. The Canadian songstress is diving deep into writing and recording a new album of polished, and some refreshingly unpolished gems, that will gently tug your ear and warmly invite you, "like a welcoming committee, saying come in, come in" (Luka Symons - CKUA Radio).
Heartful yet mysterious lyrics, invite the listener to come out and play, to discover and explore inner territory like new planets; magical places we've had glimpses of and long to see more of. Not everything here is as it seems; warm, visceral, thoughtful, and adventurous, but with unflinchingly honest observations about herself and the world around her. Musically, Lara is "bright, sunny, and quirky" (Sandra Sperounes - Edmonton Journal), but is now spreading her proverbial wings to include a full span of folk, avante-grade, old school cinema, with a hint of blues/rock for spice.
Since her first solo performance in May of 2005, Lara has been honing her craft. Having played 100s of shows across Canada, she has developed into a sensitive, articulate performer. Lara has performed at many festivals, including Fred Eaglesmith's Southern Ontario Picnic, South Country Fair, North Country Fair, Night of Artists, Homefest, Pembina River Nights, and The Works. She has opened for Gaye Delorme, shared stage and tour van, with friend and fellow singer/songwriter, Alexia Melnychuk, and been featured on CBC Radio, CKUA Radio, Breakfast Television, and in Alternative Trends Magazine, to name a few.
