Little Voice Makes Big Impact

Lianne La Havas

What is it with all these female singer-songwriters and their posh names.We’ve had the dark romanticism of Lana del Rey and the gothic folk of Kyla La Grange and now we have another new act who is about to buck that trend.

Enter Londoner Lianne la havas who has been championed by Paloma Faith and has even rubbed shoulders with rock royalty – Prince.

Lianne has toured with the likes of Bon Iver and Bombay Bicycle Club but is now ready to make a splash all on her own.

Le havas has one of the most original soul vocals since Adele but doesn’t stay within a particular genre as she incorporates elements of folk,indie and jazz into her music and has a refreshingly honest and restrained take on music.

In these times where it is the big female voices that rule its easy for the weak to be left out in the cold but one listen to the gorgeous ‘Lost and Found’ could melt even the most skeptic of hearts whilst ‘Forget’ straddles folk and soul brilliantly without even trying to sound epic.

It’s the delicate vocals and ornate instrumentation that makes Le Havas such a striking talent and one to while away sunny afternoons to.

She comes to Manchester in October so be sure to check her out then.
