Hailing from a small town outside Bristol in the UK, Yola grew up in poverty with an unsupportive parent who “banned” her from making music. She later experienced homelessness, living on the streets of London, and also struggled with stress-induced voice loss. Yola overcame these challenges to launch a successful career in writing and performing on pop hits. Since the release of her debut album, she has made her US TV debut on CBS Saturday Morning Session.
