Click on the link here for Audio Player: Laura Mvula – Live at VPRO – March 23, 2013
Sounds from up-and-comers this weekend. Tonight it’s Laura Mvula, a classically trained R&B singer from Birmingham in the UK. Her debut e album, Sing To The Moon was released just a few weeks ago and already she’s being given nods in the press as “an artist to watch” in 2013.
Here she is in session at VPRO, the pop radio outlet in Holland for the It’s Live program, recorded last week.
She refers to herself as “the geeky kid of R&B” – and my impression is; we could do with a whole lot more geeky folk if they sound even remotely like her.
A very enjoyable set and a very bright career ahead – I suspect you’ll be hearing more of her in the coming weeks.
But for now – check out a new artist.
