Lianne La Havas
The 23-year-old Brit has sung backup for Paloma Faith and toured as a supporting act for Bon Iver and Alicia Keys, but now having paid some dues on the road, she has the singer-songwriter bona fides to shoulder a worldwide tour of her own. On her debut studio album, Is Your Love Big Enough, La Havas threads the needle between soulful vibrato and throttling electric guitar, a combination that gives her a refreshing unity of opposites, with the kinky hair and sidelong glance to keep listeners guessing as to how innocent her edge might be.
