Lianne La Havas ::


I went to The Bowery Ballroom on the Lower East Side last night and met up with Glyn and Chris to see Lianne La Havas. I discovered her a month or two earlier on a friend's Facebook wall and immediately was pulled into her intoxicating sound. She reminds me of Corinne Bailey Ray meet India.Arie meets Lilly Allen meets Jill Scott. She sounded amazing in person, had a bubbly and genuine personality, and took a photo of the crowd with her wind up, disposable camera to remember us by. When she played, the audience held onto to every breath, every word and as I looked around at the people jammed into the small space I couldn't help but love the fact that every type of person was represented. From the Lauryn Hill look-a-likes to scruffy bearded white hipsters, she truly reaches and connects with all audiences. In a word, she was lovely.
