Yana's debut EP to be released on June 30th 2020
Yana is a singer/songwriter from Czech Republic with strong ties to Ireland. She might have lived there in the past life if you believe in that kind of thing.
With her influences including the likes of Interference, Mic Christopher, Glen Hansard or Nick Cave, she writes deep songs that make listeners think. Yana is building a strong reputation by working with the likes of Liam Ó Maonlaí (Hothouse Flowers) or Colm Mac Con Iomaire (The Frames), supporting The Hills Mover (BE), performing in UK, Ireland, Czech Republic and Belgium so far.
She has released three singles to date, each receiving rave reviews and great radio support. The debut EP also contains a very special song, in fact the first song Yana has ever written and her most personal to date. The song is a tribute to the late Fergus O'Farrell of Interference who remains Yana's biggest songwriting influence. She worked on the song with Liam Oragh who put her lyrics to music. The acclaimed fiddle player added another emotional layer to the track. There wil be a powerful lyric video released with the song, on the same day the EP is released. The date is chosen intentionally, it would have been Fergus O'Farrell's birthday.
