(2012 Vancouver Island Music Awards)


For a singer-songwriter who is fresh on the minds of many music fans, Lola Parks has been turning heads for years. When she was 14, she received the "Most Outstanding Musicianship Award" for her school during a 5-state US tour, beating out all of the 18 year-olds. In 1999, Lola’s band Sonnenblume was selected for 100.3 The Q’s Rocktoria compilation album and was later named The Q’s Band of the Year. That same year, Lola’s song, “When Comes The Change” was featured on the TV program “Higher Ground.” Skip ahead a decade’s worth of traveling and performing around the world (including a 4-month residency at a resort in Nepal) in addition to recording and releasing her debut solo EP ‘Here’…

In 2012, Lola Parks was nominated for 3 Vancouver Island Music Awards, including Artist of the Year. She was named Female Songwriter of the Year. Citing Karen Carpenter, Ella Fitzgerald, Billie Holiday, Ani DiFranco, and Janis Joplin as influences, Lola Parks’ music – much like that of the aforementioned list – continues to turn heads. She has shared billing with Grammy Winner Loudon Wainright III, Grammy Nominee Ruthie Foster, and Juno Nominee Mae Moore, among others. She has performed throughout Central America, Argentina, Nepal, and North America, and she has released multiple well-received recordings to date. Adjectives used to describe Parks’ music include sultry, organic, natural, jazz-infused, smooth, soulful, genuine, honest, evocative, dangerous, and fun. An impressive list, but no amount of adjectives can quite define the intangible mystique and musical depth that is Lola Parks. Lola Parks toured with her trio through BC and Alberta in 2012 and 2013 and is preparing to get back into the studio and record. Keep current with Lola Parks at www.lolaparks.com

“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

Infectiously groovy, smooth and daring---the music speaks for itself.

It is time to become better acquainted with Lola Parks!
