Was magazining it today in Borders and saw Laura Izibor on the cover of jazz magazine, Echoes. Izibor is an Irish girl from Dublin of mixed Irish/Nigerian origin.
As you can see, she is talented. She has this retro stylistic touch to her voice that reminds me of Lina, an underrated artist for sure. I don’t get all the Joss Stone comparisons that UK people are giving. Izibor sounds nothing like Stone (thank goodness for that).
Here’s a cute interview with the 21 year old singer. Her accent is gorgeous.
This girl is going places.
