Biography

Lianne La Havas has a rare talent. Singing and playing the piano from the age of 7, she has always been surrounded by music. After years of performing with her local choir, she began her professional trajectory as a backing singer with Rough Trade artist Rox, also singing for Paloma Faith before launching her solo career.

Since deciding to strike out on her own, Lianne has gone from strength to strength. Developing original material with writers and producers in the UK and in America, she recorded demos that attracted the attention of Warner Brothers Records, who have taken her on to produce a full length album.

Lianne’s captivating charisma is at its most potent on stage. Her presence holds her audiences spellbound, often with a keyboard as her only accompaniment.

Since signing to Warner Brothers Records in late 2009, Lianne has been working with a selection of writers and producers including Dan Carey (Franz Ferdinand/Hot Chip/Lily Allen), Dave Sitek of TV on the Radio,and Matt Hales of Aqualung. She has also signed with mega-agency CAA, who’s roster literally stretches from AC/DC to ZZ Top.

2011 will see Lianne split her time between London, LA, and New York, working on material for her debut and playing shows on both sides of the pond.
