Laura Mvula: She

Classically trained at the Birmingham Conservatoire where she majored in composition, 27-year-old British singer-songwriter-pianist Laura Mvula (born Douglas) released her debut album 'Sing to the Moon' in March.

Two stunning videos were created for the outstanding lead single "She".  The most recent clip is by London based director Alex Southam; the original video is by photographer Damian Weilers, also London based, and was shot in and around the town of Montagu in South Africa’s Western Cape province.

Mvula (her husband is Zambian-born baritone Themba Mvula, also a Birmingham Conservatoire graduate)  is currently touring:  her next show is August 4 in Stockholm.  A string of dates are scheduled for continental Europe, the UK, the U.S., as well as Canada.  She wraps up the tour in Dublin October 12.  (director Alex Southam)  (director Damian Weilers)
