New Music Alert: Laura Mvula
The latest to emerge from the pack of young and talented beyond their years British soul singers, Laura Mvula is a standout. Her sound is not so easy to label…at least for the mainstream…but her star is definitely on the rise. You may hear traces of Amy Winehouse or her influences Erykah Badu and Lauryn Hill but in more of an old school Nina Simone forge her own path kind of way. Her take notice debut album Sing to the Moon was just released and the title track is absolutely luminous. Which is pretty well summed up in the live performance below and if you hurry you can download the track today over at KCRW.
Laura Mvula. Remember that name!
