Biography

A mature voice and dynamic, soulful guitar songs: Nilüfer Yanya’s music is indebted to Nina Simone, Amy Winehouse and Pixies. Her sound was discovered by leading music blogs and magazines long before her full-length debut ‘Miss Universe’ hit the shelves. So far the 22-year-old Londoner with Turkish roots has toured with Sharon Van Etten, Fleet Foxes and Broken Social Scene. Top tip of the house.
