In 2016, Yola embraced a career with her first love, Americana music, and in September of the same year was chosen to represent the UK at the prestigious Americana Music Association showcase in Nashville in where she was selected by the massively influential broadcaster NPR as one of their top 10 artists. In February she crowned UK Artist Of The Year by The Americana Music Association UK.


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

“Country gospel with the driving energy of old-fashioned soul music...Her songs brandished big hooks and she filled them with stirring vocals, shouts, and yes, yodeling.” The Guardian
