Lianne La Havas at the Loft

Posted By on Tue, Apr 16, 2013 at 2:28 PM

British singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Lianne La Havas' U.S./Canadian tour brought her to her first Atlanta performance at the Loft on April 13. This being the second-to-last tour stop, La Havas commented on a bout of homesickness setting in. But after witnessing the crowd's enthusiasm, her ails were quickly remedied. La Havas cracked a laugh or two during her opening song, jokingly with the crowd, "This isn't a happy song." Embracing local vernacular, she invited the crowd to get "turnt up" in true Atlanta fashion. The intimacy was palpable between the crowd and the performer, and was a testament to the excess of personality she brought to the stage. This melding of genuine personality and talent made for a rare scene of superstar presence, while her interaction with the audience felt like hometown familiarity.
