With a voice of focused intensity and pure tone, a rootsy folk-rock vibe and a Latin/Southwest sensibility, bilingual singer-songwriter Lara Manzanares’s debut original album Land Baby weaves a tapestry of geographical, emotional, and cultural landscapes, describing stories of passion and comedy that cut to the heart – and motivate your soul to move.

I enjoy playing indoor venues, but a piece of my heart will always be singing on the street! In addition to the events listed here, I occasionally do spontaneous street performances or mini-events. You can see what I'm up to in the moment by following me on Facebook.
