It’s official. Laura Mvula is hot in the streets. The Birmingham, UK singer, songwriter, and pianist was ranked number 4 out of BBC’s Sound Of 2013 poll after releasing her She EP across the pond back in November. A huge buzz has been growing and for good reason. There is something magically intriguing about Mvula, whether its her stunning looks, Nina Simone poise, or engrossing lyrics.
For her BBC live performance, Mvula debuts “Green Garden” off her upcoming album, Sing To The Moon. The hand clapping number sounds like one long praise break, and I absolutely love it. The infectious single shows Mvula’s expansive musical range including jazz, folk, and soul.
I honestly feel that Mvula is a moving train of profound inspiration that cannot be stopped. 2013 is her year. If you want to see where it all began, check out another live performance of her breakout song, “She” after the jump. Facebook Twitter
