In 2012, my kids introduced me to Lianne La Havas' debut album, Is Your Love Big Enough? One play and I was hooked; I've been a fan ever since. Her music works for any activity, any emotion.
The first time I saw La Havas live, I was unprepared for the experience: Her music touched my heart in a way I'd never experienced before. I cried through the entire performance. Her music was that powerful, with lyrics woven together with beautiful harmonies; it pulled emotions out of me I didn't even know existed.
La Havas is soulful yet playful, raw and vulnerable in a commanding kind of way, and her new second album, Blood, is as amazing as the first. In this Tiny Desk performance, she plays two new songs - "What You Don't Do" and "Unstoppable" - as well as "Forget," from her first album. She and her talented collaborators, James Wyatt on piano and Frida Mariama Touray on backing vocals, rehearsed this special arrangement during the sound check just moments before the performance. It's wonderfully intimate, with just guitar accompanied by vocals that embellish without getting in the way. If you're like me, you will never get enough.
Blood is available now.

    Tiny Desk fans: If you’re into hip-hop, then you know that it’s inherently protest music. Listen to our new podcast, Louder Than A Riot, to hear about the interconnected rise of hip-hop and mass incarceration. Through the stories of Bobby Shmurda to Nipsey Hussle, we’ll reveal how rhyme and punishment in America have always gone hand-in-hand. Check us out at: http://apple.co/louderthanariotpodcast

    There are a couple of times in 'it's what you don't do' when Lianne seems like she's just enjoying listening to the music that's happening so much that she's almost reluctant to start singing again. I thought that was so nice. Loving your songs and the other musicians so much

    I wouldn't mind being blind as long as I had her singing to me everyday... On second thoughts... She is too gorgeous... I love her work and natural born talent... I just hope her album tracks were more acoustic like this instead of that fuzzy modern syntethized style. I keep coming back to her acoustic performances... She is so natural... Yes, i'm in love too

    I am watching this for probably the 50th time. There are so many wonderful things, and I'm caught between wanting to talk about the musics... there are little gems hiding in here and I come back for ideas about how to play, how to think about melody... and then she smiles and the brain just stops... when was the last time I saw someone show that much joy just... singing?
    So this is just to say. Thank you, Lianne, James, Frida. This is.. so much. Cannot express.

    Hey Tiny Desk fans: Were we ever all supposed to get a say in our democracy? Throughline hosts Rund Abdelfatah and Ramtin Arablouei explore this question in three new episodes. In this series, we’ll take a close look at voting in America, and how that’s shaped what American democracy is, what it was meant to be, where it’s failed, and what it might become. Check out Throughline here : https://n.pr/3laoLr6
