Bristol-born Americana songwriter Yola heads to Gorilla on Tuesday 3rd December.
Yola recently released her critically acclaimed debut album Walk Through Fire, which established her as the queen of country soul from the very first note.
The album, produced by Dan Auerbach, is a contemporary twist on a traditional sonic tapestry of orchestral strings, fiddle, steel, and shimmering tremolo guitars. Walk Through Fire is a career-defining and genre-bending release from one of the most exciting emerging British artists in music today. The album won supporters from The New York Times to Vogue and accolades including Rolling Stone’s Artist You Need To Know and NPR Music’s Artist To Watch in 2019 who said Yola is “an artist sure to stun audiences for years to come.”
Yola has toured Europe and the US extensively with UK highlights that include performing at Glastonbury Festival, opening for the Killers at Cardiff Castle and sold out London shows including the legendary 100 Club. In the US Yola has appeared at The Hollywood Bowl, Newport Folk Festival, SXSW and Farm Aid. Yola has performed with artists including: Kacey Musgraves, The Highwomen, Mavis Staples and Dolly Parton and will open for Chris Stapleton at his An Outlaw State of Kind Benefit alongside Willy Nelson and Sheryl Crow.
