Yola Carter is a country-soul singer/songwriter from Bristol. Heavily influenced from an early age by sixties country, Stax-era soul and gospel ranging from The Staple Singers to Otis Redding, Yola was raised in a small seaside town in the South West of England and 'always wanted to be a country music artist'. Unafraid to address difficult issues in her lyrics, Yola's real-life story - both heartbreaking and inspirational - naturally finds its way into her songs. Coming from a poor, broken home and a parent suffering from mental illness who 'banned' her from making any music, Yola's experience of growing up was one of truly living below the breadline.
