Award winning Laura Mvula has a stunning singing voice as exhibited on her Top 10 album Sing To The Moon. Her song Little Girl Blue featured on the soundtrack to the film 12 Years A Slave. She has captivated and international audience and recently returned to the charts with her second album The Dreaming Room.
Growing up in the suburbs of Birmingham, Mvula developed her talent by singing in the a cappella band Black Voices which had been setup by her Aunt. In 2008 she started her very own group called Judyshouse. Placing herself as the lead singer and the groups writer, the music was predominantly informed by jazz and neo-soul. The experience gained from working in the two acts combined with her superb voice and talents for writing made her the perfect choice to become Director of the Litchfield Community Gospel Choir which she became in 2009.
Mvula began to write new material and create demos on her laptop and send them out to various persons in the music industry. Her tracks were heard by composer Steve Brown who passed them on to his manager Kwame Kwaten who also took her on. Despite her obvious abilities, Mvula was crippled with stage fright when being made to perform industry showcases but still managed to shine resulting in signing to Sony subsidiary RCA.
Her first LP was entitled Sing To The Moon and was released in 2013. A huge commercial success, the record reached #9 in the UK Album Charts and saw her win Best Female Act and Best R&B Or Soul Artist at MOBO Awards.
She has just released her brand new album The Dreaming Room. The fantastic record features performances from Nile Rodgers and Wretch 32.
