This past Friday, JUNO-nominated singer-songwriter-producer Barbra Lica shared her most deeply personal music to date with her new single “The Ghost of Me.”
“This song is a meditation on identity, disconnect, and failure;” shares Barbra. “Who are we when we’re no longer the person we pretend to be – the person we wish we were?“
The song was co-written with Danielle Knibbe. The haunting production with layers upon layers of guitars and voices is a first-time collaboration between Barbra and accomplished producer/guitarist Nick Tateishi (Sam Drysdale, Joanna Majoko). Today, Barbra announces the release of her forthcoming EP Imposter Syndrome, due out on Friday, October 7th (Cookie Cat Records).
The album is a collection of songs released over the past few months, including “Girls Like Me,” “In 40 Years“, and “Blue Monday.” The songs from the album have been featured on such playlists as Apple Music’s “New In Singer-Songwriter,” “Breaking Singer/Songwriter,” and Spotify’s “Folk & Friends”. She’ll celebrate with a Toronto show on October 1st at the Supermarket as part of the 2022 Kensington Market Jazz Festival. Stay tuned for details here.
