    Lianne La Havas Featured on NPR's "Morning Edition": "The Golden Girl of British Music"

    British singer/songwriter/guitarist Lianne La Havas—pictured at left in the Tom Ford gown she wore as a nominee at last week's Mercury Prize ceremony—was the subject of a feature profile on NPR's Morning Edition earlier today. In the piece, reporter Elizabeth Blair examines La Havas's banner year since her performance on Later ... with Jools Holland one year ago, through the release of her debut album, Is Your Love Big Enough?, to her Mercury Prize nomination, and more. And, as Morning Edition host Renee Montagne says in her introduction to the piece, it "helps if you’re as talented as the young singer-songwriter we’re about to hear from." Listen to the piece, titled "The Golden Girl of British Music," at npr.org.

    Lianne La Havas has arrived in the United States, where she will make her debut performance on the Late Show with David Letterman this Thursday, November 8; she appears for the first time on Conan next week, on November 14. Also next week, La Havas gives three headlining shows in the US: Sunday, November 11, at the Washington, DC–area Birchmere Theatre; Friday, November 16, at Los Angeles’ Roxy Theatre; and Saturday, November 17, at San Francisco’s Rickshaw Stop. For additional details and ticket links, go to nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    To pick up a copy of Is Your Love Big Enough?, head to the Nonesuch Store, where CD orders include an instant download of the album and, for a limited time, an exclusive print signed by La Havas.
