Of course, it also helps if you're as talented as 23-year-old Lianne La Havas. One critic called the singer-songwriter the golden girl of British music. Another wondered whether she could be the next Adele.

It was just her, singing and playing guitar. Her voice was clear, pure and soulful. The song she performed — called "Age" — was both jazzy and sassy.<p>"Time seemed to stand still," wrote one critic of La Havas' live performance.

But sometimes all it takes to snap me out of a late-summer heat coma is the sound of a new and electrifying voice — like that of Lianne La Havas.<p>The first thing that grabbed me about the 22-year-old British singer was a curious moment halfway through a song called "Lost & Found" on her debut record, <em>Is Your Love Big Enough?</em> The music is moving at a stately, confessional pace. She's sharing a lot, maybe too much, about being hurt by a lover. Wed, 08 Aug 2012 20:34:00 +0000 Tom Moon 31795 at http://www.kunc.org Lianne La Havas: A Cool Antidote For Late Summer's Heat
