She’s the soul singer and two-time Mercury Prize and Brit Award nominee, with a public endorsement from Prince. Her album The Dreaming Room features collaborations with legend, Nile Rodgers.
Laura Mvula first sang in church and later with all female acapella group Black Voices. By 2008 she had formed, and was composing for, her own jazz/neo-soul outfit Judyshouse. Mvula is a graduate of the Birmingham Conservatoire and holds a degree in composition.
Her debut album, Sing to the Moon, was released in 2013 and garnered multiple award nominations and critical acclaim. Discussing her follow-up, 2016 album The Dreaming Room, the UK Guardian described how Mvula “pulls the listener along with her through the most serpentine songs: however, winding their routes, the melodies are almost always beautiful; however much the musical scenery shifts, it is always striking.”
