|Lianne La Havas is collaborating with Prince!|
If you are already a fan of Lianne's, you'll be glad to know that the artist, formerly and presently known as Prince, has sought her out to be part of one of his projects. He is taking his band, 3rd Eye Girl, to do some secret concerts. Prince did a press conference at Lianne's house of all places! The details are all very mysterious, but something cool is brewing, that is for sure.
Heartbreak and an ex-boyfriend is what drove Lianne La Havas to pick up that now famous second hand guitar, find herself and write songs from her heart. The man who broke her heart should be thanked! For, even while in abstentia, he is at least partially responsible for helping generate such great musical artistry. Oh, how love and heartbreak can inspire genius!
Her impeccable original song stylings and voice are beautiful. Her unique guitar picking and strumming is part of her originality that is inspiring many guitarists who happen upon her sound. She is still way too under the radar in my opinion, but she really has got a majorly loyal and solid international fan base that keeps growing organically.
She writes the vast majority of her song repertoire and only rarely does an occasional cover, quite beautifully I must say. See the great live cover song by Lianne at the In The Woods Barn Session in the 6th video below where she covers a song by Little Dragon titled Twice.
In describing Lianne La Havas, Beautiful is a word that cannot be overly emphasized here on every level from her music, to her poise, to her genuine authenticity. Enjoy! - GC

Lianne La Havas - Is Your Love Big Enough?
Here is a live take and scaled down version of the song above, "Is Your Love Big Enough". It's just Lianne singing with her guitar and Joss Stone sitting next to her grooving out on the French TV show TARATATA. Lianne La Havas is an inspired artist with "it".
