Yola - Walk Through Fire (Vinyl)

This is the debut album by Yola. It was released on February 22, 2019 on Dan Auerbach's Easy Eye Sound label, to much acclaim. The album title references both a fire which damaged Yola's home and an abusive relationship from which she escaped. Walk Through Fire was written, recorded and produced at Easy Eye Studio in Nashville. Auerbach produced the record and assembled an all-star cast for its creation. Most of the songwriting was a collaboration of Yola and Auerbach with contributions from Bobby Wood, Pat McLaughlin and Dan Penn.

Say what you want about Dan Auerbach and his work with The Black Keys, but he's turning out to be one of the best current producers for vintage-sounding music.
After curating everything from the latest Dr. John album to the best(?) Lana Del Rey  record he's started his own label and is having a really interesting streak lending his expertise to a few talented but quite unknown singers.
Enter Yola, a singer from Bristol whose warm voice marries the sun-kissed Tennesse plains in a dozen songs that flow effortlessly like a lazy Sunday afternoon.
She's backed by a few of the best session musicians in Nashville, people who worked with Aretha Franklin, Dusty Springfield and Roy Orbison, plus Auerbach himself.
The result? Perhaps it's nothing new, and I guess it won't make the top of the charts, but I guess it's enough to warm a tired soul in these last few winter nights.
