La Havas’ debut studio album, Is Your Love Big Enough? (2012), was released to positive reviews from critics and earned her a nomination for the BBC’s Sound of 2012 poll and awards for the iTunes Album of The Year 2012.[4]

Paper Thin (Live) · Lianne La Havas

La Havas was born and raised in London, England, to a Greek father and Jamaican mother.[5][6] She was raised in Tooting and Streatham, spending the majority of her time with her grandparents after her parents separated.[7] La Havas began singing at seven, and cites her parents’ diverse musical tastes as having the biggest influence on her music.[8] Her father, an accomplished multi-instrumentalist, taught her the basics of guitar and piano. Lianne wrote her first song at the age of 11, but did not learn to play the guitar until she was 18 years old. Lianne sang in her school choir.[9] She attended Norbury Manor Business and Enterprise College for Girls in Thornton Heath where she studied art A-level, and had planned to take an art foundation course before she decided to leave college to pursue a career in music full-time.[7] Her birth name is Lianne Barnes, and her stage name is an adaptation of her Greek father Henry Vlahavas’ surname. She lives in London.[1]

Courage (Live) · Lianne La Havas

Whilst attending sixth-form in Croydon, Lianne was introduced to musicians who would assist La Havas in the recording of her first demos.[7] Through that same friend La Havas was also introduced to British singer Paloma Faith; she later sang backing vocals on tour for Faith. La Havas was discovered on Myspace in 2008. Duncan Ellis, owner of Scruffy Bird Artist Management, first heard of La Havas through colleague Alex Hardee of the Coda Music Agency.[9] When Ellis first saw La Havas perform, she was in the duo the Paris Parade, collaborating with future Elephant member Christian Pinchebeck (who designed the artwork for Lost & Found); their short-lived career would kick off La Havas’ career in commercial music.[10] In 2010, Lianne signed to Warner Bros. Records, spending two years developing her songwriting skills before releasing any music publicly.[11][12]

2020: Lianne La Havas

La Havas released “Bittersweet” on 25 February 2020[32] as the lead single from her upcoming album. On 4 May 2020, La Havas released the second single “Paper Thin” and announced that her self-titled third studio album would be released on 17 July 2020.[33] Following its release, the album received a number of positive reviews from major publishers.[34][35] The New York Times’ chief pop music critic, Jon Pareles, in his review, has mused:

The songs illuminate passion, impulsiveness, ambivalence and uncertainty, yet the structures La Havas created are lucid and poised. While matters of the heart may be out of control, her fingers and voice are impeccable.[34]

Her first EP Lost & Found was released on 21 October 2011 on the Labour of Love label,[13] featuring Willy Mason on the opening track “No Room For Doubt”.[14]That same month, La Havas released the live EP Live From LA, which was made available for free download on her website.[15][16] La Havas made her television debut on 21 October 2011 broadcast of BBC Two‘s Later… with Jools Holland, a programme that also featured Wisconsin folk band Bon Iver;[17] soon after this on 25 October 2011 it was announced that La Havas would be the supporting act for Bon Iver‘s December 2011 North American tour.[18]

Her official debut single “Lost & Found” was released in the UK on 30 April 2012,[19] and her debut album, Is Your Love Big Enough? was released on 9 July 2012 on Warner Brothers.[11] At the end of 2012, Is Your Love Big Enough? was named iTunes Album of the Year.

Midnight (Live) · Lianne La Havas

Midnight

Lianne La Havas
Mmm A long and lonely journey
To my hideaway
And I know they’ll try to turn me
With the things that they say
But no one knows where I’ll go
When I walk away
So come now hurry hurry
Don’t miss this train

Open up and let me get to you
Take you to another side
Come to my world
After midnight

We’re getting lost in another time
Your hand in mine
In my own world, on my own time
Maybe that’s why

People think I’m crazy
Lately I’m
(I’ll be fine…)
Living in midnight
Just living in midnight
(Ohhh…)
And if you think I’m crazy
Pay it no mind
(Ohhh…)
Living in midnight
Just living in midnight

Oh, if you could see what I’ve seen
You would dare to dream
Honey if you care to join me
Come meet the team

Oh and you all can be my army
There’s no other way
So come now hurry hurry
Don’t miss this train

People think I’m crazy
Lately I’m
(I’ll be fine…)
Living in midnight
Just living in midnight
(Ohhh…)
And if you think I’m crazy
Pay it no mind
(Ohhh…)
You’ll never know the places I go
When I’m alone

If only for a moment
Only for a while
‘Cause I’ll be lost to the unknown
Hope to be alright
Ohhh, ohhh…People think I’m crazy
Lately I’m
(I’ll be fine…)
Living in midnight
Just living in midnight
(Ohhh…)
And if you think I’m crazy
Pay it no mind
(Ohhh…)
Living in midnight
Just living in midnight

People think I’m crazy
Lately I’m
(I’ll be fine…)
Living in midnight
Just living in midnight
(Ohhh…)
And if you think I’m crazy
Pay it no mind
(Ohhh…)
You’ll never know the places I go
When I’m alone
