Laura Mvula has been confirmed to perform at this year’s Coachella and Jazzfest festivals. Additional headlining dates have also been added.
Mvula took 2013 by storm, making her US debut at SXSW in March, followed by a slew of headlining dates and a slot on the lineup for Alicia Keys’ Black Ball, as well as performances on The Today Show, The Late Show With David Letterman, Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and the Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson.
2013 was an equally thrilling year for Laura at home in the UK, where she was nominated for the coveted Barclaycard Mercury Prize and a BRITs Critics’ Choice Award, made the BBC Sound of 2013 shortlist, and won two MOBO Awards.
Her moving cover of Nina Simone’s “Little Girl Blue” was also featured on the soundtrack for the critically acclaimed film 12 Years A Slave.
