It's a pretty good sign that a crooner's got golden vocals if Stevie Wonder's showing up at the Bootleg Theater to groove to her tunes. And that's precisely what just happened to soulful songstress Lianne La Havas, who performed in front of Wonder — and a bevy of Lala Land fans — last week before she hopped the pond back to her native Britain, where she's already causing quite the brouhaha. And he's not the only luminary who's taken notice of the stirring sounds La Havas has going on — Christian Louboutin gives the fashion-forward gal first dibs on punchy pairs (just wait 'til you peep 'em!) and Bon Iver snatched her up last year as an opening act.
So, when La Havas offered to model her singular style for our lens, it was, well, music to our ears! Her debut album, Is Your Love Big Enough?, drops August 7, so we suggest getting to know this melodic hottie if you want to stay ahead of the curve. Consider this your introduction.
