Nilufer Yanya

Artist Biography

Nilüfer Yanya is a 22 year old Londoner whose soulful but angular guitar-framed songs feel cutting edge but timeless. Her breakout anthem 'Baby Luv' was named one of Pitchfork's songs of 2017, a year she also played her first North American headline shows to sold out rooms and toured worldwide with artists as diverse as The xx, Mitski and Fleet Foxes.

Coming from Turkish, Irish, Bajan heritage and inspired by Nina Simone and Jeff Buckley as well as The Strokes and the Pixies, her songs are threaded with spacious echoes, sax flourishes and run through with her deeply luscious voice. People have likened her soulful chords to Amy Winehouse and her guitar work to King Krule, but Yanya is certainly carving her own path.
