Yola

For a girl raised on the coast of Southwest England, where she did not fit in and life was hard, finding herself in the easy camaraderie of Dan Auerbach’s studio was the realization of a childhood dream.

For the last three years, Yola (who previously performed as Yola Carter) has been a standout at the Americana Fest in Nashville. She released a debut solo EP in 2016 after the dissolution of her band Phantom Limb. She also toured as a vocalist with Massive Attack, among other acts.

Yola’s debut album Walk Through Fire, produced by Dan Auerbach, is a genre-bending release from one of the most powerful emerging British voices in music today. The singer/ songwriter first came to the attention of Auerbach (The Black  Keys) after a chain of people, starting with her manager, forwarded a video of her performing in Nashville that eventually found itself in Auerbach’s inbox.

“The judges’ votes are in, the decision is unanimous, Yola’s put us on the canvas. Fantastic” - HotPress

“A voice to die for…it could be likened to Aretha Franklin. She is that good.”  - Maverick

“Sporting an afro that’s almost as spectacular as her voice, Yola Carter explores that glorious territory between country and soul… authentic Americana with a British soul” **** The Times

“Hype can be fickle, but with Walk Through Fire, Yola proves that the AmericanaFest excitement was anything but a fluke. It's the work of an artist sure to stun audiences for years to come.” - NPR
