Yoji

Hailing from Suffolk, Yoji is a soulful pop singer and pianist. Inspired by artists such as Stevie Wonder, Alicia Keys and Lauryn Hill, Yoji mainly writes heartfelt songs from experience and has won song writing awards such as Fame Music & Coffee House Sessions, iluvlive and Future Breakers. Yoji has released two EPs and her songs have been played nationally on radio hosted by Marvin Humes Capital FM & Heart FM and this year she has been featured on Tom Robinson’s Fresh On the Net and played on 6 Music. BBC Introducing in Suffolk have been great supporters of Yoji, playing her music regularly and invited her to perform at a showcase. Tipped by the East Anglian Daily Times & the Ipswich Star to be a ‘future chart success’, she is set to take the charts by storm with her new single. YOJI is bringing all the feels with ‘Satellite’, a metaphor for being there for each other in a digital age and a reminder to stay connected with friends. ‘Satellite’ features a beautiful choral arrangement sang by singers from London Gospel Community Choir which uplifts the song and signifies care in unity. Teaming up with The Samaritans YOJI is raising awareness for mental health and also donating the proceeds of all streams and downloads to the charity. Yoji recently completed a Masters in Popular Music at Goldsmiths where she wrote and self produced her latest singles ‘Twinkle Star’ & ‘Satellite’.
