Laura Mvula: Shimmering Retro Soul With A Classical Twist

Email a Friend

British soul singer Laura Mvula has garnered comparisons to Adele and Amy Winehouse, but with her debut album, Sing To The Moon, Mvula proves she's in a category that's all her own. The album is a lushly orchestrated 12 songs of carefully crafted shimmery and layered retro soul that reflects both her longtime classical training and pop savvy. Simply put, Mvula's music is gorgeous, and absolutely worth a listen. 

Hear Laura Mvula and her trio play a set of songs from the album in the Soundcheck studio.
