EU LP pressing. A nominee for the 2013 BRITs Critics' Choice Award and included in the coveted BBC Sound of 2013 longlist, this is Laura Mvula's debut album. Described as "The voice of 2013" by the Evening Standard, 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, Laura is a unique collison of her Caribbean background and formal music. Laura's debut single "She", produced by Steve Brown (Rumer) and mixed by Tom Elmhirst (Adele) is a track so lyrically poetic that it took on a life of it's own. Laura started writing songs on her laptop while working as a supply teacher in a Birmingham secondary school. Clash magazine say, "Beautiful in voice and soul, lift your eyes skyward and watch this girl soar".
