Lianne La Havas has seen an exciting career accomplishment with the recent nomination for a Grammy Award for her current critically acclaimed album Blood for Best Urban Contemporary Album.

The Grammy nomination adds another major addition to Lianne’s list of achievements with Blood. Released to a flurry of her best reviews to date with many critics drawing comparisons with the likes of Lauryn Hill, Erykah Badu and Joni Mitchell, the new release went straight into the charts at number 2 – two places higher than the peak position of her popular debut album Is Your Love Big Enough?

She was also subsequently nominated for three MOBO Awards for Best Album for ‘Blood’, Best Female Act and Best R&B / Soul Act.

Lianne embarked on her biggest tour to date concluding with her biggest headline show to date at the Brixton O2 Academy. After the show sold-out months in advance, Lianne added a prestigious Albert Sessions show at London’s Royal Albert Hall on March 14. Earlier this summer, Lianne played triumphant sets at festivals including Glastonbury, Bestival, Gentlemen of the Road, Latitude and Secret Garden Party.

Even President Barack Obama proved to be a fan when he featured Lianne in his summer Spotify playlist.

Lianne’s show-stopping performances captivate huge audiences – such as on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert – and intimate sessions alike, as with her Tiny Desk Concert for NPR. She played her largest North American show to date in front of 2500 people at New York City’s Terminal 5 which Billboard reviwed as “a treat for true La Havas fans and newcomers alike, a spectacle with incomparable energy.” Doors 7pm.
