There’s something special about this young lady from Birmingham. Laura’s debut single ‘She’ appeared out of nowhere almost overnight to huge praise from the cream of UK music critics - a track so lyrically poetic that it took on a life of its own.
Nominee for the 2013 BRITs Critics’ Choice Award and included in the coveted BBC Sound of 2013 longlist, Laura Mvula’s debut album ‘Sing to the Moon’ was released on 4th March 2013 through RCA Victor (Sony).
Described as “the voice of 2013” by The Evening Standard, the classically trained, singer-songwriter’s music fuses orchestral soul with velvety harmonies and emotional vocals giving nods to Nina Simone, George Gershwin and Björk amongst others. A graduate from the Birmingham Conservatoire with a degree in composition, the 26-year-old is a unique collision of her Caribbean background and formal music.
As Clash magazine say, “Beautiful in voice and soul, lift your eyes skyward and watch this girl soar”.
