Hometown: Birmingham, UK
Record Label: RCA
In today’s musical eco-structure afflicted with over-polished images, auto-tuned vocals and disposable content, the Birmingham hailing, classically trained rising star Laura Mvula arrives like the antidote to the infested scene.
The beautiful RCA signed soul singer, songwriter and composer (Laura graduated from the Birmingham Conservatoire with a degree in composition), who grabbed our attention with the stunning “She” – a stunning blend of delicate instrumentation, choir harmonies and stirringly distinctive soul drenched vocals – oozes a credible, honest and undeniable talent on record and live that has gained her accolades all the way from the blogs to the broadsheets, comparisons to the likes of Billie Holiday, Nina Simone, Amy Winehouse (who she cites as a huge influence), a nomination for the 2013 BRIT Award of Critics’ Choice and a growing army of fans and supporters determined to she her light shine brightly across the globe.
With her debut album Sing To The Moon set for release on March 4th (featuring the incredible singles “Green Garden”, “Father Father“, “Like The Morning Dew” and more), Laura is going to have to clear an entire wall or two for the numerous awards she is set to sweep up this year.
