Editorial Reviews

Sing To The Moon is the critically-acclaimed debut album by Laura Mvula. The 26-year-old classically trained singer-songwriter's music fuses orchestral soul with velvety harmonies and emotional vocals, utilizing her formal training at the Birmingham Conservatoire along with hints of her Caribbean background.

Sing To The Moon has received overwhelming critical praise in the UK, with the Daily Mail, the Daily Mirror, the Evening Standard, the Guardian, the Telegraph, and Metro all giving the album 4 stars and the Sunday Times selecting it as their Album of the Week. She was also nominated for the 2013 BRITs Critics' Choice Award and ranked fourth on the shortlist for the coveted BBC Sound of 2013.

Mvula played showcases at the FADER Fort, Hype Machine's Hype Hotel, the VEVO TV Control Room, and the BMI & Billboard Acoustic Brunch at this year's SXSW. The New York Times featured Laura as one of their picks from this year, describing her set as "polished and unconventionally structured songs that suggested Joan Armatrading by way of Cecil B. DeMille. Her songs had a few lines of exposition that would suddenly be answered by her whole band which included harp, cello and violin with choirlike vocal harmonies, pushing Ms. Mvula toward exultant incantations that gave obsessions a cinematic glow."

Laura Mvula is a new and prodigious talent from Birmingham who would be well advised to demand a recount from the BBC's poll the Sound of 2013. Here she finished fourth behind the rather average band Haim. On the evidence of this debut album "Sing to the Moon" she was robbed. Mvula arrives in the most crowded of musical fields and the key to success here is the ability to present extra dimensions in terms of both singing and song writing, She is probably fed up already with comparisons to Nina Simone but they do echo throughout this record which is one of the reasons that why parts of it are so special. Some of the music on here has already been previewed in her earlier EP "She" released in November last year yet they fit wonderfully into the context of this debut when we witness Laura Mvula's talent in the round. Opener "Like the morning dew" is a case in point. It opens with a wall of voices alia the Beach Boys and then moves into a tender ballad where Mvula's phrasing and vocals are exemplary. It is on "Green Garden" where the Simone comparison is perhaps most obvious not least with the "Sinnerman" style hand claps in the background and the almost spoken vocal. It is nonetheless a great R & B song which deserves its rightful status as a sparkling single. Other songs like the aching ballad "Can't live with the world" and the joyous almost Pet Sounds sounding "Is there anybody out there" show the foundations for an incredible talent. It is a contest however between "Father Father" and "She" which vie for the albums best track. The former is a sublime jazzy piano ballad which will replay repeated listens.Read more ›

Please buy this album! If you like being the kind of person who finds something special and significant before anyone else, then Laura Mvula is for you. I feel like I have been waiting for her.. this. Her influences are Lauren, Jill, and Erykah; and she (a brit) came up with this master piece (definitely giving her influences a run for their money)... I am truly blown away. PS, I have never written a review here, and I buy at least two albums a week for several years. This album made me write these words.. Please enjoy.

Format: Audio CD
This is as impressive a debut album as I've heard in a long time. Classically trained in composition in addition to being a fantastic singer, Laura Mvula combines a strong, accessible sense of melody with sophisticated rhythm and syncopation and challenging harmonies.

I read something categorizing Laura Mvula has combining "classic soul" with something-or-other, and I feared the worst: another young singer out to re-hash Aretha Franklin. But from the first blast of dissonant harmony that launches the lead track "Like the Morning Dew", I was shocked. I immediately sat up and paid attention -- I knew I wasn't about to be spoon-fed some dreary attempt at a Motown revival. Don't get me wrong, I love Motown, but I also like music to have a strong spark of originality.

And there is no doubt that Laura Mvula has that. Not many "classic soul" singers would venture into an anthem in 7/4 time like "Flying Without You", or the plaintive off-beat vocal fade out of "Father Father". Not to mention the harmonies, which can be so beautifully unexpected that they hit you like a jolt.

But thankfully, there is more to this music than complexity -- it also has feeling, power, rhythm, beauty, and a good sense of fun. The lyrics are often pointed, sometimes funny, and usually thought-provoking.

Laura Mvula and her co-writer and producer Scott Brown have also recognized how well her voice, strong in the lower registers, goes along with high-pitched tinkling instruments -- harp, vibraphone, glockenspiel and I think I even heard a celesta in there. The sounds blend wonderfully into a cohesive whole that is deceptive in its smoothness.

This is a masterful album that shows energy and innovation in composition as well as skill and beauty in performance. I am really impressed. Heartily recommended.

Laura Mvula's freshmen set "Sing to the Moon" arrests your attention with its originality and joyous musicality. The layered harmonies of the opener "Like the Morning Dew" are breathtaking, "Our love feels like the morning clouds." "Green Garden" is a strong track with its handclap percussion and catchy melody that challenges the listener, "And I'll fly on the wings of a butterfly high as a tree top and down again, putting my bag down, taking my shoes off, walk on the carpet of green velvet." It's deliciously original. The title track is another favorite of mine with the delicate harmonies that soar, "Sing to the moon and the stars will shine, Over you heaven will turn the tide." Other tracks like "Father, Father," "She" and "Diamonds" also sparkle. Enjoy!

Once in a while something completely different comes along and turns current popular music on its head. Laura Mvula is one of those people. She has appeared on the music scene pretty much as a fully-formed artist with a unique concoction of influences from Nina Simone to The Beach Boys which gives you faith that great music will always surface every so often.
Brilliant, I can't wait to hear ( and see) what she does next.
