Smoky acoustic R&B reggae hit singer Lianne La Havas hits the Corn Exchange this Monday 7 November
The beguiling, smoky voiced Lianne La Havas visits Cambridge this month as part of a tour of the UK and Ireland, following her triumphant set at a sun drenched Glastonbury earlier this year.
The Tooting-born Lianne started out singing backing vocals for fellow Londoner Paloma Faith, signing to Warner Bros Records at the age of 21 and releasing her debut album Is Your Love Big Enough? in 2012 to widespread critical acclaim. She was an instant hit with the critics, winning both the iTunes Album of the Year and a nomination for the prestigious BBC Sound of 2012 award. She’s gone on to make good on the industry predictions of big things, winning fans with her expressive vocals and soulful tunes.
Her follow-up album, Blood, was released in July this year, and saw the singer moving away from the stripped-back acoustic sounds of her first album and experimenting with R & B, doo-wop, reggae and gospel influences. Catch her doing her thing at the Corn Exchange on 7 December, tickets are £21.
