Singer, songwriter, guitarist and pianist… Lianne La Havas is definitely not short of anything in the talent department and the hard work is definitely there to match. Having supported Bon Iver and The Maccabees, the hype surrounding this velvet-voiced artist is proving to be real though, with her own UK shows selling out faster than you can spell ‘LIANNE LA HAVAS’. Since her star-making appearance on Later with Jools Holland in October 2011, Lianne’s trajectory to music’s upper echelons has been unstoppable. With two critically acclaimed EPs and nods from the likes of Bombay Bicycle Club, Bon Iver, Erykah Badu, Stevie Wonder and Prince under her belt Lianne La Havas released her debut album Is Your Love Big Enough? produced by Matt Hales on July 9 through Warner Bros a fully-fledged pop-super-star.
In her own words, she is “Nothing like Corinne Bailey Rae or Andreya Triana, but we all have similar hair.” In our words she is simply sublime.
