Artist of the Week: UK Sensation Laura Mvula

Artist of the Week: UK Sensation Laura Mvula

By Halley Bondy | December 10, 2012

Laura Mvula beat out our first-ever 8-strong Artist of the Week poll, and we’re grateful for the opportunity to feature this rich, gut-wrenching (in a good way) songstress even more.

As we’ve said in the past, Mvula’s sound is like “The Fleet Foxes and Nina Simone had a secret, synthesizer-playing love-child.” Her voice could dazzle anyone anywhere, from a gospel choir to the Broadway stage to a rainy day, tucked-away soul joint. The Birmingham, UK singer is working with Adele’s producer Tom Elmhirst on her debut album on RCA records, and we’re waiting with bated breath.

Check out our Q&A with the songstress, and in the meantime enjoy her single, “She.”
