Interview: Laura Mvula Sings To The Moon

It seems entirely disingenuous to suggest that Laura Mvula is just happy to be part of the musical conversation in 2013. But here we are: the Birmingham, UK soul singer-songwriter notes that this time last year, she was an soft-spoken office receptionist and gospel choir director who simply composed and created music in her spare time, never dreaming that she would have a much talked about album and be touted as “the new Adele.” Her debut album,Sing To The Moon, is a gem, a soul/jazz/gospel endeavour that owes its existence to Mvula’s spiritualty and classical music upbringing and training. Riding the European momentum, Mvula lands on these shores poised to make a lasting impact.

Fantastic album. Read my interview with Laura Mvula over at Exclaim!
