Singer/songwriter Lianne La Havas sparkled on The Tonight Show last night, continuing promotional efforts in support of her spellbinding debut Is Your Love Big Enough?
She performed the title track for Jay Leno and his audience last night and was note perfect, backed ably by backing vocalists and multiple percussionists, providing the polyrhythmic textures to LaHavas' composition.
I love "Is Your Love Big Enough?" -- although it's not my favorite on the album -- but last night's performance was so good I find I like this one even more. Several songs from her album were among my most listened to songs of last year.
What a great week for music on television and ironically it all happened before The Grammys! We had Vintage Trouble on Conan earlier this week and La Havas on The Tonight Show last night and we have Gary Clark Jr. on Jimmy Kimmel tonight. We don't need The Grammys. You just need to stay tuned to BlindedBySound and we'll find the best stuff for you! And by best, we certainly mean Lianne last night!
La Havas kicks off a full-scale US tour next month, including a stop in Nashville in April (my ticket is already in hand!) and she's done several dates in the UK already. Check out the performance and if she's coming to a city near you, get your ticket quick, fast, and in a hurry!
