Bands You Should Listen To: Laura Mvula

One of the best artists that stands out in my mind from 2013 is the English soul singer-songwriter Laura Mvula. I first found myself wagging my head to her music on KCRW’s Morning Becomes Eclectic and fell in love when I saw one of her music videos. She grew up writing music and singing in an a capella group, directed a gospel choir and taught for a while. Her well rounded musical background shows in her style. She’s got this old voice that you don’t hear in pop music but the jazz vibe to compliment it perfectly.
Sounds Like: Feist, Janelle Monáe, Amy Winehouse
Gotta Listen To: Sing To the Moon, Green Garden, It’s Alright, She
