Meet Thee Electrifying & Groove-Dropping British Songstress LAURA MVULA



We certainly cannot and will not pigeon hold thee electrifying and oh so enchanting, marches to the beat of her own drum, Laura Mvula. Shes bold, sassy, and delivers a sour-punch packed musical catalogue that at such an early stage in her career speaks much authentic depth and innovation. Her avant garde approach to melodies and lyrics ecompasses other ItsNotYouItsMe "electic-soul" favorites. Icons such as Kelis, Bjork, Grace Jones, Christina Aguilera, Debbie Harry, Nina Simone) this Britsh singer songwriter.

As she gets her ­sophomore reocrd for release, "The Dreaming Room", via Columbia, we complied a groove-dropping list of all her smashing tunes from her debut album Sing to the Moon. Whether its dance, gospel, pop, alternative, r&b-soul, up-tempo, mid or down tempo, call it whatever you need to incessantly label, Laura has got that "it" factor, that something extra, that pizazz jazz! Although her fan-base hails from her native land, thee United Kingdom, we are no strangers, in fact have always had an endearing soft-spot for all our Brit musical geniuses. We always say, the musique picks us not the other way around. Its mixed with glitter sex and rock n' roll and Miss Mulva was quoted saying.....




 "Listening to my songs being played on the radio next to Coldplay and Rihanna was very surreal," she says. "People were trying to market me as the next Adele. I'm a dark-skinned chick with short hair -- I was never the next Adele."




"Born and raised in Birmingham, Mvula sang in the church choir, then studied ­musical ­composition at university. Desperate to break into music but too timid to try, she worked as a ­substitute teacher until her husband, Zambian-born classical baritone Themba Mvula, encouraged her to post her songs on SoundCloud. A recording deal with RCA followed, and within a year she was a bona fide pop star; Prince declared himself a fan." - Billboard

Now without further ado kiddas, its time to dip into fun and get dem spaceboots boogie stilletos on and let the magic fever of Laura Mvula send you into an urban psychedelic pop dreamsicle-dream.
