New Premium Styles: 00's UK Soul Diva & Country Blues Ballad!

We're back this week with two brand new Premium Styles! Both Styles are inspired by modern divas of Soul music from the UK and Country music from the US respectively. Fans of Adele, Amy Winehouse, or even Diana Ross should find plenty to inspire them with the new 00's UK Soul Diva Style. And if you like your Country mixed with a little Blues; Country Blues Ballad will give you the rhythms and sounds to play like Pistol Annies, or the Dixie Chicks! Like All Yamaha Premium Styles, our programmers have carefully created the high quality sounds that Yamaha Style players have come to expect, and frankly deserve!

Check out the video previews and detailed descriptions below. If you're looking for something a little different, browse the entire catalog at Yamaha MusicSoft, or directly through your instrument via Internet Direct Connection!

00's UK Soul Diva
Inspired by Adele's "Chasing Pavements", this Style is a terrifically smooth addition to our catalog of R&B/Soul Styles. The rhythm builds naturally, like a carefully written soul ballad throughout the 4 variations. Featured voices include harmonica, organ, a lush string section, and Yamaha grand piano!




Country Blues Ballad
Country Blues Ballad was inspired by Pistol Annies' song "Hell in Heels". One of the highlights of this Style is the amazing drum sound, and interesting rock rhythm that bounces from toms to snare, growing with intensity as you switch through the variations. Featured voices include Yamaha piano, steel guitar, harmonica, and lead guitar!




Yamaha Premium Styles are avialable exclusively at Yamaha MusicSoft and Internet Direct Connection.

Have a great weekend!
