Winners of the 2021 Drake YolanDa Award for emerging young musicians announced

The Drake YolanDa Award has announced the winners of its 2021 prize, to be celebrated at an award ceremony taking place at North London’s Roundhouse Studio Theatre on 6th November, where all recipients of the prize will perform. Welcoming artists from all backgrounds and musical genres ranging between ages 16-30, the music prize was founded in 2019 by the two time MOBO winner and broadcaster YolanDa Brown and the philanthropist James JP Drake, to support the careers of young artists by providing financial support to spend on touring, marketing, recording or other ways to further their careers. 

About Us

The Drake YolanDa Award has been created by James JP Drake and YolanDa Brown, to support emerging artists across the UK on their musical journey. We will award artists who express a commitment to their careers, demonstrate creative excellence and a drive to succeed. The award is intended to further recipients’ artistic practice, encourage career sustainability, and best equip them to make their own artistic choices. We have decided to create an opportunity to hear from the artists in person. So the shortlisted applicants will have an opportunity to speak about their projects, as well as perform their music live to an expert panel. The Drake YolanDa Award is provided by the Drake Calleja Trust (Registered Charity No: 1164114).
