Lianne La Havas: Is Your Love Big Enough + Lost And Found + Forget + No Room For Doubt

23-year-old London born singer-songwriter Lianne La Havas (Greek father, Jamaican mother) started singing and playing the piano early, but didn't pick up the guitar until she was 18; today it's a distinct part of her sound.

Three EPs have been released since 2011; her debut studio album 'Is Your Love Big Enough?' dropped July 9.

She has played with Bon Iver, Bombay Bicycle Club, and Willy Mason; the track and video "No Room For Doubt" features Mason.

Prince, Stevie Wonder and Ryan Adams are among her biggest fans - maybe they'll sneak in in disguise for one of her many upcoming shows, including an in-store gig at Amoeba Records in Hollywood this evening at 6 pm.

The September 28 - October 21 UK part of her dizzying fall tour kicks off in London at the iTunes Festival where she will be opening for Alicia Keys.  She has one night in Paris October 24 before opening for John Legend in the U.S. October 29 through November 18.  (Note: one non-Legend gig in San Francisco is scheduled for November 17. )  Finally, there will be eleven shows in continental Europe November 21 through December 7.
