Does anyone know Yola?

Just been listening to her debut and she has a really great voice.  Loving it so far and it's a nice take on Americana.  Check it out!

Thanks for the heads up Cheif! Got our tickets for 2/9 at The Kessler. Opener looks pretty good too!

Right on.  She has 2 shows here but they're already sold out so I won't get to go. :(  I think she will be definitely playing bigger venues next time around!!

I'll check out the opener, thanks for posting!

Have you heard Thomas' album?  I heard one song and I dig the sound and voice.

So I used to volunteer for Young Life in Houston and Thomas was one of the YL kids that was really involved. Great kid and was just starting to write his own stuff in high school and I of course showed him everything MMJ especially live at the Fox in Oakland which was my latest MMJ show at the time. I remember him playing some of his songs in people's backyards etc and it was pretty good especially for a young kid. I lost touch with him and had no idea he became a legit singer/songwriter so I could not believe it when I saw his name as the opener for Yola. Listening to his stuff now and it sounds great. Very small world!

Such a cool story!  Would you recommend getting the album?

I haven't listened to his album all the way through yet so it is hard to say but I'm sure I will get to hear more on Sunday!

Csorba was good, cool voice and a lot of fire, I'm prob gonna hold off on buying the record for now though

Just saw that she has a new album coming out on July 30th and am definitely excited after hearing the single "Diamond Studded Shoes"
