Twice now, In the space of two weeks I have found myself stood with goosebumps, gripped by Lianne La Havas’ live shows.
She successfully captivated crowds at Hop Farm festival, and during her support slot for Robert Plant, (HMV Forum) these sets included material from her debut album. (released earlier this week)
La Havas has great stage presence whether it be with or without her band. The contrast is welcomed, as alone her unique style of guitar playing combined with perfectly executed powerful vocals create a special feel.
In between songs La Havas seems cutely humbled by the crowds applause which is really nice to see as her beaming smile expresses her passion and delight. At both gigs Lianne paused just before the end of her set, to take a photo on her phone. “cough, I’m not texting” showing a good sense of humour. This was welcomed by the crowd as she later posted the pictures on her twitter account.
La Havas ended both sets with the title track from her debut album “Is Your Love Big Enough”
Buy the album, and support Lianne from the beginning of her promising journey, you can also book tickets for her upcoming tour later this year. (I will be !!)
