Lianne La Havas

By Lianne La Havas

The title of her third album is simply Lianne La Havas. With two virtuosic albums behind her that are wonderful showcases for her songwriting, musicianship, and her vocal adeptness the English songwriter’s latest offering is a unique insight to the complex coping skills needed to navigate romantic relationships. Lianne uses her blend of R&B, pop, and some exceptional dramatic rock and roll to work through her emotions with generous vulnerability and resonant lyrics. While Lianne’s found independence is tentative at best, her performances, both vocally and with her expansive guitar is sweeping in intensity, complexity, engagement, and confidence.
