Lianne La Havas Featured on NPR's "Tell Me More," Rings in New Year on Jools Holland's "Hootenanny"

Lianne La Havas: "Age," Jools Holland's Hootenanny, 2012

London-based singer/songwriter Lianne La Havas, who rang in the New Year performing on Jools Holland's Hootennany on BBC Two (watch her performance of "Age" from the show below), is set to return to North America for an 18-city headlining tour starting March 17 in Dallas, following shows this month and next in Australia, the UK, and Ireland. Prior to the end of 2012—which saw the release of her critically acclaimed debut album, Is Your Love Big Enough?, in August—La Havas was featured on NPR's daily talk show Tell Me More last week. On the show, in a segment titled "La Havas Brings Her Soulful Songs Across the Pond," she spoke with guest host Celeste Headlee about the new album and the stories behind its songs.

"Singer, songwriter, and instrumentalist Lianne La Havas has already made a big impact at home in the United Kingdom," says NPR's Headlee. "Now she hopes to gain some more fans here in the U.S., and I doubt it will be very hard with her soulful and very edgy sound." About Is Your Love Big Enough?, Headlee concludes: "It's a great album. And I recommend people go pick it up."
