“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
