Description
It's hard to fathom that this arresting and authoritative debut comes from a singer-songwriter still in her 20s, but its easy to be swept along as you absorb the wonders of each new song. Sophisticated and exhilarating, it's as if a mid-career Joni Mitchell had suddenly sprung out of Birmingham, England.

"On paper, 'Sing to the Moon' may seem like yet another album by a young, big-throated British singer but it sounds like practically nothing else out there. It's not exactly pop or soul or jazz. It's all those things, yet transcends those things. Over the course of the album, you might be swept into the intimacy of an after-hours speakeasy, find yourself clapping along at a Manchester all-nighter, or be thrust onto the stage of an old-time cabaret. The album's baroque, velvet textures and atmospheric ambiance perfectly complement the lush, smoky curls of Mvula's voice. But even more mesmerizing is how this former choir director sublimely weaves her bandmates' voices with her own, helping to make seven people sound like 70…. A debut that's ambitiously distinct and confident, as if they had perfected their sound years ago but only now decided to share it with everyone else. What begins like an invocation ends up feeling like a revelation."—Oliver Wang, NPR
