She’s already made legions of South African hearts happy with her soulful voice and striking stage performance so it’s only natural that Lira would want to extend a little of that love to the rest of the world. Her 4 albums (and DVD shot in 3D) have all sold platinum and above in SA.Â She’s making her American debut with shows this week, in celebration of the US release of the Lira EP today. A 14-song album will be released on 31 January 2012 (my birthday!) with Feel GoodÂ being her first radio single release.
Lira is playing SOBs tonight, with support from Zim saxophonist extraordinaireÂ Max Wild.
