Yola - Walk Through Fire
British rising star Yola's debut solo album, Walk Through Fire, produced by The Black Keys' eight-time Grammy Award winner Dan Auerbach, was released on February 22, 2019, on Auerbach's Easy Eye Sound label, distributed by Nonesuch Records.
Yola has blazed her own trail with a passion for the soul and country music she loves. Walk Through Fire is a contemporary twist on a traditional sonic tapestry of orchestral strings, fiddle, steel, and shimmering tremolo guitars, it provides the perfect soundtrack to Yola's arresting vocals, which first came to the attention of Auerbach after a friend sent him a video of Yola performing in Nashville.
The moment I met Yola I was impressed, says Auerbach. "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."
