“It’s really important that my lyrics are truthful. It’s hard for me to make up a story and to be able to put the necessary emotion into the performance. It doesn’t make me happy if I can’t hear myself in it. It’s like I’m lying; I feel bad.” – Lianne
We’re pretty sure this British-born, greek and Jamaican heritage, natural-haired beauty has heard it many times before, but if you listen to her music with your eyes close, you can almost…just almost, mistake Lianne La Havas for Corinne Baily Rae. Almost…because there is something strikingly different in the raspiness of her voice and the soul she evokes. Establishing cred as a powerhouse soul singer, Lianne has her own sweet sound that is soothing and soul reaching which makes her voice unique amongst similar song-bird type vocalists of her genre.
Lianne La Havas made waves this year as a bonified star. Along with her peers, Corinne, Emeli Sande and Jessie Ware, she moved crowds and critics alike with her heart-warming ballad “Lost And Found” on her debut album, “is your love big enough” which is chock full of relatable songs on love and life. Songs that seem to emotionally reach far beyond her young years here on this earth. Check out her single “Lost and Found” and let us know if you are feeling this deep vibe. Because we love it. Love.it.
