Lianne La Havas
Everywhere I went in England people were asking me, ‘have you heard Lianne La Havas?’ and now I know why. Intelligent and captivating songs combined with a beautiful soulful voice that can both cry and sparkle, this woman is a true talent who is hard to take your eyes off. She sings with a rawness and honesty that is rare these days and it makes me want to really listen to what she has to say. Her compositions go far beyond the average pop song, with chord and melody choices that you would never see coming yet then fit perfectly as she weaves her sultry voice around them.
It is superb to see a real musician like this gaining some recognition on a large scale and I can only hope that she doesn’t let any record labels dull her down and simplify her authentic musical style. A true unique musician.
