Lola Parks live in the Pacific Lounge
Friday, May 19 at
463 Belleville Street
Looking for some weekend entertainment? The Pacific Lounge is proud to present live music every Friday & Saturday night in May. or a singer-songwriter who is fresh on the minds of many music fans, Lola Parks has been turning heads for years.
In 2012, Lola Parks was nominated for three 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.
