Hailing from a small town outside Bristol in the UK, Yola grew up in poverty with an unsupportive parent who “banned” her from making any music. She later experienced homelessness, living on the streets of London, and also struggled with stress-induced voice loss. Yola overcame these challenges to launch a successful sideline in writing and performing on pop hits; she briefly joined British band Massive Attack and has gained fans like the late great James Brown--who once told Yola, “Soul’s a thing, and you got it!” after she and her band Phantom Limb opened for him.

Written and recorded at Auerbach’s Nashville studio, Easy Eye Sound, Yola’s debut record, Walk Through Fire is a contemporary twist on a traditional sonic tapestry of orchestral strings, fiddle, steel, and shimmering tremolo guitars. A truly collaborative record, it was written in the studio by Yola and Auerbach with contributions from songwriting legends who between them have written songs for artists from Glen Campbell to Aretha Franklin. Auerbach also assembled his Easy Eye Sound all-star house band, composed of legendary session players. Musicians who performed on the record include bassist Dave Roe (Johnny Cash) as well as drummer Gene Chrisman and pianist Bobby Wood, who played on hits by Dusty Springfield and Elvis Presley. Guest performers include up-and-comer Molly Tuttle and country music icon Vince Gill. 

Dan Auerbach said, “The moment I met Yola I was impressed. Her spirit fills the room, just like her voice...she has the ability to sing in a full roar or barely a whisper and that is a true gift. She made everyone in the studio an instant believer.” 

Yola’s debut album Walk Through Fire is the latest release on Dan Auerbach’s record label, Easy Eye Sound, distributed by his longtime label Nonesuch Records.
