Yanya is fresh off a Turkish, U.K. and European headline tour which included multiple high profile festival appearances. Her North American tour includes appearances at Newport Folk Festival, Celebrate Brooklyn, XPONential Festival and Osheaga.


Her ambitious and compelling debut album Miss Universe arrived in March packed with stellar singles and powerful songwriting and has seen widespread acclaim from publications including NPR (First Listen) and Pitchfork who awarded the album Best New Music. Largely recorded in the same remote English studio she used to jam in with her uncle Joe, a former musician himself, Miss Universe features co-productions with both her former school guitar teacher The Invisible’s Dave Okumu and her live bandmates Jazzi Bobbi and Luke Bower, as well as producers John Congleton, Oli Barton-Wood, Will Archer and M.T. Hadley. Inventive, expressive and rapturous, the album has seen Yanya deservedly hailed as a true original and a vitally important new voice in indie-rock.
