'The Great Divine', Lara's sophomore album is a group of simple allegories that developed into delicate, atmospheric avant-folk/pop songs, influenced by M. Night Shyamalan's movie 'The Village', C.S. Lewis's Chronicles of Narnia, Philip Pullman's Dark Materials books, and the beauty that exists in all of us.

The album was recorded over the course of a year, in between touring, sweeping the floors in her house (which Lara seems to like more and more), and hanging out with her husband and two dogs. Colin Lay (recording engineer extroardinaire) recorded, co-mixed, and mastered the album. "We recorded the bed tracks at Retrogram Sound (George Blondheim's studio - just outside of Edmonton, Alberta). Then, I bought myself Protools (recording software) and did the rest of the album at home on my trusty (for the most part) computer", Lara laughs.

The lovely and sweet Alexia Melnychuk came into the studio, picked some banjo and sang. Kevin Parkinson's sensitive and unique style of percussion can be heard on most of the songs; and Marty Majorowicz enhanced one of the songs, 'Picadilly Square' with his shy and cute trombone playing (a real one - very exciting). Also, on one of her favorite songs, 'Gold Brick', (which also features The Brilliant Gold Choir), Lara's brother Justin and mom Trish, both sang. "It breaks my heart to hear their voices in there", Lara says.
