"FEMALE SONGWRITER OF THE YEAR" - 2012 VIMA

Boho chic SOUL FOLK carried by dangerous lyrics, hypnotic grooves and a seductive voice.

Lola Parks has been turning heads for years. A multi-award winner, including "Most Outstanding Musicianship" and "Female Songwriter of the Year" (and The Q’s “Band of the Year” with her first band, Sonnenblume), Lola’s song, “When Comes The Change” was featured on TV’s “Higher Ground” while “Trouble With Me” off 2011’s HERE has been featured in two indie films. HERE garnered Lola three Vancouver Island Music Awards nominations and continues to receive international attention and grace playlists.

Adjectives used to describe Parks’ music include evocative, dangerous, sultry, organic, natural, jazz-infused, smooth, soulful, genuine, honest and fun. Lola has performed on five continents, shared billing with Grammy Winner Loudon Wainwright III, Grammy Nominee Ruthie Foster, Juno Winner Jim Byrnes, and Juno Nominee Mae Moore, toured Western Canada three times, and released multiple well-received recordings: The Hustle (2017), Here (2011), Lola Parks (2002 self-titled debut), Sonnenblume (1999) – available on Spotify, Apple Music, Bandcamp! Don’t miss this one-of-a-kind act!

What they’re saying about Lola Parks:

“Outstanding voice…Spot-on, beautiful work, perfect pitch, great lyrics delivered beautifully. Superb emotion and inflection, just as good as it gets. Brilliant!” – Barry Morgan, Talenttrove.com

“The song is only 17 seconds old, but I’m in love.” – AmphetaZine

“Lola Parks is definitely the most mature, original, soulful and honest fusion/folk act I’ve had the pleasure to witness…dangerous writing and immaculate vocal stylings…brilliant…” – Cosmic Debris Magazine

"Sandy’s music comes from a place of natural beauty. Like the artist herself it sings with honesty and makes the listener move closer in hopes of capturing every note and word.” – Jeff Dawson, Producer/Engineer/Musician

“Lola Parks creates a dreamscape of sound, an aural portrait of human emotion and her songs hold nothing from an audience. Her lyrics display a masterful command of the language combined with honest, simple expression. More impressive than her songwriting skills, her voice is an instrument of pure beauty that rivals any contemporary female performer.” - David Burke, Bassist

Infectiously groovy, smooth and daring - it's time to become better acquainted with Lola Parks!
