From Nashville — Music Talks with Hunter Kelly: Yola

Hunter Kelly and Yola

Apple Music Country radio host and journalist Hunter Kelly curates and hosts a series of intimate conversations with some of the industry’s most iconic and influential artists, exploring their creative process, where their music is headed, and how they hope to expand the genre for those coming next.

Powerhouse singer, songwriter and four-time Grammy nominee Yola joins Hunter Kelly for an up close and personal conversation about her artistic journey and acclaimed new album, Stand for Myself.

The formidable Bristol-born artist spent 20 years in Britain’s music industry before blazing onto the American scene with her sensational 2019 debut album Walk Through Fire, which Rolling Stone called “a meticulously crafted love-letter to 20th century American pop that fuses … country-soul, Laurel Canyon singer-songwriter, Phil Spector pop, smooth R&B [and] Sixties countrypolitan.” Now based in Nashville and winning accolades for her new album, Yola talks with Kelly about taking control of her creative independence, her writing process, her genre-fluid artistry, black feminine strength through vulnerability, and where she’s headed next. They also explore the community of BIPOC musicians who have helped empower the inimitable Yola to Stand for Herself.
