What we're Listening to...

Oh the elusive season that is spring! That is, perhaps, until now. We are finally able to finish our working day with a sprinkling of sun rays and a little warmth, which means we start to think of brighter and happier times spent in the sun listening to good music. Who better to be this week’s choice than the splendid Laura Mvula.

For a while now this contemporary singer has been rated as being one to watch for 2013 and of course the posters infiltrate the London underground, so those of us that live in London at are no strangers to her name. But when we take notice of the hype and  really sit down to give her music time and appreciation we are not disappointed by any means. 

Mvula, influenced by other soul singers such as Jill Scott and Erykah Badu, is an accomplished composer and singer with a style that is original and uplifting. Her debut album released last month Sing to the Moon is just gorgeous. 

Watch our favourite video of the single that preceded her album which is full over beautiful spring time quirk and vocal brilliance.

She’ll next be playing live at Marlay Park at Longitude Festival in Dublin and you can purchase her music from iTunes.
