With an undeniable vocal talent, a universal understanding for musicality, and an attention-drawing charisma, Lianne La Havas is one of the most interesting newcomers out of the UK scene lately. The 23-year-old London-based songstress and multi-instrumentalist has convinced music critics with her clever melange of soul, folk, jazz and hip-hop sounds, and even impressed Justin Vernon and Bon Iver to invite her as the supporting act for their December 2011 North American tour. With her debut album Is Your Love Big Enough being released this week, the Greek-Jamaican singer is likely to significantly increase the numbers of her steadily rise number of followers. We sat down with her and found out about the prevailing theme in her music, her eclectic taste, touring with Bon Iver, and more. Is Your Love Big Enough is available here.
