Yola - who was just nominated for Americana Music
Honors & Awards for Emerging Act of the Year and Album of the Year for her Dan Auerbach-produced debut album, Walk Through Fire - was a guest on NPR's World Cafe. She spoke with host Talia Schlanger about her life and music and performed three songs from Walk Through Fire from Auerbach's Easy Eye Studio in Nashville: "Faraway Look," "Walk Through Fire," and "Love All Night (Work All Day)".
The songs on the album "ring out with the triumphant air of someone who has withstood the flames and the heat en route to achieving their dreams," says Schlanger. You can hear the conversation and performance below:
