Laura Izibor "Don't Stay"

Man, I have been playing this track over and over again. I am really impressed with Laura Izibor and I love her voice. Very fesh!

Thanks go out to Ron, for introducing me to her music.

According to;
Laura Izibor is an R&B singer/songwriter from Dublin, Ireland, who began her major-label recording career with a series of soundtrack contributions in 2007 before making her full-length album debut in 2009 with Let the Truth Be Told. Born in Dublin and citing as her primary influences soul icons of the 1960s and '70s such as Otis Redding, Marvin Gaye, Stevie Wonder, Candi Staton, and Roberta Flack, she began singing professionally as a teenager and developed a personal style that has been compared to Lauryn Hill and Jill Scott. Recognition came quickly for the young Irish R&B singer/songwriter, as she won the 2FM Song Contest at age 15 and was signed to a major-label recording contract with Jive Records at age 17. She began recording her full-length debut album while under contract with Jive Records, but her relationship with the label frayed. She subsequently moved to Atlantic Records, where she continued with the ongoing recording sessions for her debut album, a process that would ultimately take four years in total and include sessions in a variety of studios in Dublin as well as the United States.
