Coachella 2014 | April 11 – 13

This year, I was lucky enough to get approved for a media/photo pass for the first weekend of Coachella.

I remember the day I first heard Laura Mvula sing (January 18th, 2013) because I was so amazed by what I heard that I immediately posted a blog entry about it. I kept an eye (and ear) on her music and would post additional blog entries about some of her other songs (“That’s Alright” and “Jump Right Out”) becauseContinue reading “Laura Mvula | El Rey Theatre | 9/17/13”

Laura Mvula | “That’s Alright” (Video and Lyrics)

2013 may very well be a GREAT year for new female vocalists.  I’ve already been smitten by Nai Palm, the lead singer of Hiatus Kaiyote … and now Laura Mvula is looking to squeeze her way into my heart as well.

Laura Mvula’s “She” (Live)… Amazing

Wow. I was eating lunch and surfing the web when I stopped what I was doing to post this video. I don’t know much, if anything, about this singer-songwriting, but I was immediately floored by her sound. Born in Birmingham, United Kingdom (why does it seem like all of the great soul singers these daysContinue reading “Laura Mvula’s “She” (Live)… Amazing”
