2020 Grammy Nominee for Best New Artist, Best Americana Album, Best Americana Roots Song, and Best Americana Roots Performance
Walk Through Fire is the debut album from Yola, whom Q calls a “Bristol country-soul miracle.” The Dan Auerbach–produced album puts a contemporary twist on a traditional sonic tapestry of orchestral strings, fiddle, steel, and shimmering tremolo guitars. Yola’s arresting vocals captivate with sincere tales of heartache and loves lost, forgotten, and broken. The album “showcases Yola’s otherworldly vocals and compelling songwriting,” says NPR. “It’s the work of an artist sure to stun audiences for years to come.” The digital album for sale includes two bonus tracks, including a cover of Elton John’s “Goodbye Yellow Brick Road.” Grammy Award Nominee: Best New Artist, Best Americana Album, Best American Roots Performance & Best American Roots Song (“Faraway Look”).
