New signing: Nilüfer Yanya New signing: Nilüfer Yanya

Universal Music Publishing are delighted to announce the signing of Nilüfer Yanya. 

Growing up in the heart of London, 21 year-old Nilüfer Yanya’s exploration of music was immersive from the very start. After discovering classical piano at secondary school in Pimlico, a little later at Saturday music school Nilüfer’s relationship with the electric guitar grew and was taught by Dave Okumu of The Invisible. 

Each track Nilüfer writes leaves a perfect imprint of simplicity and she takes her inspiration from iconic songwriters such as Nina Simone and Jeff Buckley as well as modern influences Connan Mockasin and Rosie Lowe. 

Nilüfer's music incorporates the city’s urban edge with beautiful wandering guitar lines, downtrodden soulful and jazz flickered melodies, on top of minimalist and atmospheric beats. Her first two singles are 'Small Crimes' and 'Keep on Calling'.
