SoulTracks 10 Gems: Lianne La Havas

February 3, 2020 – Welcome back to 10 Gems, our new series featuring 10-song, single-artist playlists that we think may especially appeal to SoulTrackers. The focus here is not on track position or “hits,” although some are included; rather, it’s all about quality, atmospherics, groove, and feel. 

Our featured artist is the sublimely-talented, UK singer/songwriter Lianne La Havas. We have reported on virtually Lianne’s every move here, and for good reason: The depth of feeling and sincerity of her music, the grace and timbre of her voice, and her quavering, signature guitar sound all add up to something special. Although she’s been appearing live consistently since her debut in 2012, Lianne hasn’t released an album of her own material since 2016’s Blood Solo, and we thought SoulTrackers may appreciate a reminder of just how gifted she is. Enjoy.
