Laura Mvula

Mark Radcliffe is flying solo today and he's joined by singer-songwriter Laura Mvula. From Birmingham, in just one year classically-trained Laura's songwriting has already garnered 2 BRIT Award and Ivor Novello nominations and been shortlisted for the 2013 Mercury Prize, for her album Sing to the Moon'. She's re-recorded this album with the Dutch Metropole Orkest, which known for working alongside artists such as Elvis Costello and Basement Jaxx. Laura chats to Mark ahead of her appearance at this year's BBC Proms, where she'll be performing tracks from this album, in which the orchestra makes its Proms debut.
