At just twenty three-years old, the London-based singer finds artistic range and nuance that may catch new audiences off-guard.
Often, to speak of maturity when listening to a musician of LOLA’s age is to play with fire. Yet the intricate compositions, haunting melodies and spiritual musings in her songs to date defy the listener to suggest otherwise. The candidness of delivery in LOLA’s smattering of performances lend audiences to believe they’ve finally been let in on a guarded secret. And in the tradition of those mysterious tales of royalty and romance once imparted to LOLA as a young artist, perhaps they have.
The release of LOLA’s debut EP ‘The Sleeping Prophet’ in early 2020 with support from NME, i-D, CRACK and more, as well as radio support from Phil Taggart (BBC Radio 1), Jamz Supernova (BBC 1Xtra) and Mary Anne Hobbs (BBC 6Music) has firmly positioned her amongst the UK’s most exciting rising stars.
