XPN Welcomes Laura Mvula

World Cafe Live

Where:
3025 Walnut Street Philadelphia PA 19104
When:
  • Monday September 9th 2013

Since announcing the release of her debut EP ‘She’ back in November last year, Laura Mvula has been picking up critical acclaim and support from some of the biggest tastemakers out there. Laura’s unique sound has wowed critics, helping to make her one of names on everyone’s lips in 2013 and has led to her being described as “The voice of 2013” by The Evening Standard and her album hailed as “a masterpiece” by The Sunday Times Culture.

The classically trained, singer-songwriter’s music fuses orchestral soul with velvety harmonies and emotional vocals giving nods to Nina Simone, George Gershwin and Björk amongst others. A graduate from the Birmingham Conservatoire with a degree in composition, the 26-year-old is a unique collision of her Caribbean background and classical music.

As one of the most exciting new musical talents to come out of the UK, this young lady deserves every bit of attention that she gets. As Clash magazine say, “Beautiful in voice and soul, lift your eyes skyward and watch this girl soar”.
