New Release: Lianne La Havas ft. Willy Mason – No Room for Doubt

Label:  Warner Bros/Labour for Love
Genre: Acoustic Soul
Lianne La Havas
Sounds Like: Tanya Auclair, Laura Marling, Corinne Bailey Rae

After reading Lianne’s own description as “Nothing like Corinne Bailey Rae or Andreya Triana, but we all have similar hair”, I won’t dare make the musical comparison, tempting as it is. Previously a backing singer for Paloma Faith, Lianne has whizzed to the foreground with her own style of delicate folk-soul, guided by folk veteran Willy Mason. The contrast in timbre between the two adds a unique atmosphere to a brilliantly written song – I can only pray they collaborate more in the future. Lianne has also released an EP – Live from L.A, which is available as a free download from her website, so go cop a copy.
