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

    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."

    To listen to Lianne La Havas on Tell Me More, go to npr.org. To follow Headlee's recommendation and pick up a copy of Is Your Love Big Enough?, head to the Nonesuch Store, where CD orders include a download of the album at checkout. To find out where Lianne La Havas will be performing on her upcoming tour, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour.

    On New York City NPR member station WNYC, the staff at Soundcheck have included La Havas's September appearane on the show among its favorite in-studio performances of 2012. Listen at wnyc.org.
