She’s been described as “the most striking voice since Adele” (Telegraph UK), a crooner whose concoctions of neo-soul and indie folk, but with an added punch, is delivered with six-string acoustic notes. British chanteuse, Lianne La Havas, will be visiting Brisbane while in the country for the 2013 Sydney Festival, and the critics want us to know that we’re lucky to have her.

She’s wowing industry giants wherever she goes; La Havas supported Bon Iver on their North American tour after lead man Justin Vernon was so moved by her stage presence - and that was just during a soundcheck! Her entrancing, slow vibratos and simple arrangements have been captivating audiences across London, Paris and New York, and she shows no signs of losing momentum.

Lianne La Havas will be supported by Brisbane’s own Thelma Plum, the combination sure to prove a soulful musical experience.
