“the concert – and indeed Mvula herself – oozed sincerity; a real celebration of original, authentic work in the music industry.” – narcmagazine.com
“brilliantly fierce and fiercely brilliant. Mvula has taken personal misery and turned it into musical magic.” – The Evening Standard
As one of the most exciting musical talents to come out of the UK, Laura Mvula
has been nominated for the Mercury Prize, BBC Sound poll, the BRITs Critics Choice Award, two BRIT Awards in 2014 (British Female Solo Artist and British Breakthrough Act); winning an incredible two MOBO’s in 2013 (Best Female and Best R&B/Soul).
The classically trained vocalist and soul singer-songwriter - who has been compared to the likes of Nina Simone - caught the attention of her musical heroes Jill Scott, Erykah Badu and Prince whilst performing at the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury.
Laura Mvula has since gone on to travel the world, selling out shows and captivating crowds. Her sophomore album The Dreaming Room (2016) is an acclaimed follow-up to the universally adored debut album Sing To The Moon (2013).
