Lianne La Havas – Tiny Desk Concert [Performance] (UK)

October 26th, 2015 | By Janei

We recently missed Lianne La Havas live when she made her stop in New York, and have been beating ourselves up about it. We thought we would never get a chance to see Ms. Havas perform live…until we found footage of her Tiny Desk Performance at NPR.

For those that’s not up on the Tiny Desk Performances, its when a notable or fast rising artist comes to the NPR studios and performs a intimate 10-20 minute segment for the people in the room. Lianne La Havas and her backups showcased “What You Don’t Do” and “Unstoppable” from her new album “Blood” (out now), and “Forget” from her first album.

This just made us beat ourselves up even more…

I’ve been dying to get Siaira Shawn on this site for quite some time now. She blew my mind when I seen her perform for Sol Village at SOBs last years, and I’ve been keeping a eye out ever since. Well today is the day you get to hear the wonder of Siaira Shwan. She recently performed at the Rockwood Music Hall, and tore the house down. Normally she doesn’t have her performances captured, but someone finally caught her talent in the act. She covered Bilal’s “Levels” in this intimate performance.
