Lianne La Havas to Headline at LA's Bootleg Bar; Recorded Forthcoming Debut Album in LA, Brooklyn
British singer/songwriter/guitarist Lianne La Havas, whose debut album, Is Your Love Big Enough?, will be released in the US on August 7 via Nonesuch Records, performs a headline show at Bootleg Bar in Los Angeles tonight, presented by KCRW and The Fold; Ferraby Lionheart opens. It's a return to Los Angeles for La Havas, who recorded Is Your Love Big Enough? there and in Brooklyn last summer; she also recorded her 2011 free EP Live in LA in the city.
In recent months, La Havas has emerged as one of the UK’s most buzzed-about new talents, with critically acclaimed EPs, sold-out shows worldwide and nods from the likes of Bon Iver and Ryan Adams. Esquire (UK) calls her the "songbird from London who pairs honeyed vocals with delicately finger-picked acoustic guitar" and says, "Her performances have a mesmerizing effect."
Pre-order information for Is Your Love Big Enough? and additional US tour dates will be announced shortly. For tickets to tonight's show, visit ticketfly.com.
