    David McClister

    Congratulations to Yola, who has been nominated for two UK Americana Awards: UK Artist of the Year and UK Song of the Year for "I Don't Wanna Lie," from the digital deluxe edition of her Dan Auerbach–produced solo debut album, Walk Through Fire. Yola won both UK Americana Awards for which she was nominated last year: UK Artist of the Year and UK Album of the Year for Walk Through Fire. The sixth-annual UK Americana Awards will be presented as part of the virtual AmericanaFest UK in January 2021.

    Walk Through Fire "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 album was nominated for four Grammy Awards: Best New Artist, Best Americana Album, Best American Roots Performance & Best American Roots Song. You can pick up a copy and hear the album here.

    Lianne La Havas's new, self-titled album has made the Best Albums of 2020 lists of the New York Times and NPR Music. Its songs are "brimming with poised musicality," writes the Times's Jon Pareles. "Graceful melodies, supple guitar syncopations, sophisticated harmonies and a voice that can sparkle with anticipation or cry out in pain capture all the hope and heartache of her narrative." NPR's Suraya Mohamed says: "The songs on this album, La Havas' third and perhaps best, reveal how her sophisticated artistry is made of not just brilliantly crafted lyrics, but a rich musicality, full with gorgeous harmonic voicings, catchy rhythms and soulful melodies."
