With her roots in Aotearoa, Lola Sola is a singer-songwriter with a dynamic vocal range and emotive lyrics; blending folk, soul and a hint of blues. In late 2015, following a successful crowd-funding campaign, she went on to record an EP and tour New Zealand. Currently based in Sydney Australia, she has released her first studio album ‘Walking Back from Hell’, a stripped-back collection of originals recorded at A Sharp Recording Studios with producers, Richard Lake & Joe Sharratt. Since the release in mid 2016, she has toured New Zealand and the East Coast of Australia to share the album and successfully crowdfunded for her first independent music video for single ‘Swim’; filmed in New Zealand.
Lola’s solo performances are intimate and captivating. Her shows are always developing with the different collaborative efforts of the musicians she works with. She is currently touring as a duo with Sydney bassist/percussionist Kate Hogan.
‘Walking Back from Hell’ is a collection of honest song writing. Pairing haunting lyrics with delicate harmonies and simple guitar riffs, it sets a backdrop of an artist who has a powerful connection to her experiences and a lot more stories to tell.
“..Raw, soulful and full of emotion. The goose bumps were back, this girl is good for my soul” - Loretta De Hann, Live’n’loungin NSW
