If you're looking for a more accessible fka Twigs, then look no further!
Sonically and visually a cousin to the fellow Brit, Laura Mvula is a longtime Perezcious fave who makes really cool and slightly more "mainstream" art.
The singer/songwriter has just partnered with legendary musician Nile Rodgers for her latest release, Overcome, which may be the best song she's over done.
Check it out above!
We wouldn't be surprised if Laura Mvula is nominated for a bunch of Grammy Awards next year! She makes the kind of music the Recording Academy loves to honor!
She is very much in the mold of Norah Jones and Adele!
And if you like either of those two artists, you will very much like Laura Mvula! The Brit is very much like them - with a good dose of Nina Simone influence as well.
We love her!
Check out her GORGEOUS - and 6 minute long - Can't Live With The World (above)!
Laura Mvula is soooo phenomenally talented!!!! She's truly like a modern-day Nina Simone.
Check out an exquisite live version of her song Sing To The Moon above!
Watch, enjoy and SHARE her with your friends!
If you like Emeli Sande, we think you will enjoy Laura too!
Laura Mvula is like a modern-day Nina Simone! And that is so refreshingly awesome!
Nobody else is quite in this lane right now!
Her songs combine pop with soul and fierce syncopation!
Check out her latest single, That's Alright, above!
If you dig Jill Scott, Lauryn Hill or Erykah Badu, we think you will really like it!
This is special!!! And unlike anything else out there right now!
If Nina Simone were making music today, we think she'd sound a bit like Laura Mvula!
The British soul singer also reminds us a bit of The Noisettes and Estelle.
She's super dope!
