"Never Alone" 

New Single Out Now

Don\'t Delay...they say...

Don't Delay...they say...

Happy 2023 music lovers,

Very happy that I was able to record six new songs and release three singles in 2022. Recording was met with an uncanny, unprecedented amount of delays, "it's either one thing or another..." (Gord Downie) ... a sport's race, a surgery (neither mine, fortunately, ha), a miscommunication (or many), change of direction leading to no-electric-guitar-rentals-in-Perth-for-cheap or short-term... OK. So!

Excited to have recorded two remakes, and get the 6th track finished pronto. Plan to release 2-3 singles and an EP in 2023 - "la vida sigue," amigos: life goes on, my friends, and so must the music and we!

Stoked to be performing live right now in Mazatlán. Here's this two-weeks' snapshot:

Thu, Jan 19 @ Water's Edge Bistro, Centro Historico, 7-10pm: Lola & Benito (duo)

Sun, Jan 22 @ Pedro y Lola's, Plaza Machado, 6:45-10:30pm: Lola y Los Lolos (Dave Oakey, Benito Meschoulam, Darío Avila, Javier Murillo)

Wed, Jan 25 @ Macaws Bistro, Centro Historico, 7-10pm: special evening of music -- solo Lola

Sat, Jan 28 @ Torres Mazatlán (VI Resorts), Cerritos, 5-8pm: solo Lola

Sun, Jan 29 @ Pedro y Lola's, Plaza Machado, 6:45-10:30pm: Lola y Los Lolos (Dave, Benito, Darío, Javier)

Thu, Feb 2 @ Water's Edge Bistro, Centro Historico, 7-10pm: Lola & Benito (duo)

Then - after several flight cancellations and other impasses that precluded me from going to Nashville for the first time for the 2022 Sync Summit, led by CEO/sync agent/mentor Mark Frieser (Sync Summit, Disconic), I'm booked and headed to Sync Summit 2023 in Los Angeles, CA Feb 6-11 - Mark's last foreseeable live event, where I'll finally get to meet Mark and "la jefa", the most amazing woman, mentor, music supervisor and Control Freaks founder, Paty Carrera, and many other incredible music supervisors & sync agents.

Gracias al universo, gracias a todos por su apoyo duradero.
Thank you, Universe, and thank you all for your enduring support.

la vida sigue y la vida es buena - Jan 20th, 2023

About

Lola Parks (Sandy Powlik) is a Soul Folk Pop singer-songwriter from Vancouver. Her style is intelligent, intimate, evocative, boho chic and deeply influenced by her Indigenous and European heritage while staying true to her jazz roots ALA Sara Bareilles, Brandi Carlile, Bonnie Raitt and Norah Jones.

 

In 2022, Parks released 3 singles: "You Are Light (Lynne's Song),” a tribute to Parks’ recently late mama, "It'll Be All Right," about early loss of life due to overdose or suicide, and “Never Alone,” about a loved one not returning home. "Somber yet hopeful," says Parks of the recent releases, "with a resilience, acceptance and carrying-on: la vida sigue."

 

No Apologies, her 2020 album, features singles, “Dreamer” and two-time International Songwriting Competition semi-finalist “Freight Train.” “No Apologies encourages us to own all of who we are, stand strong in our roots and our right to be, speak our truth and stand up to power,” explains Parks. “The songs are about female empowerment, dialogue, forgiveness, and celebrating where we come from.”

 

Parks has created a fiercely independent musical history: five studio recordings; five continents, multiple awards (Female Songwriter of the Year, Outstanding Vocal Jazz Musician); Western Canadian tours; TV/film/radio syncs incl. CBC's “The Early Edition” theme song.

 

Stay tuned for more new music by Lola Parks in 2023! 

 

One seriously amazing voice” - Brett Smith-Daniels, Luxton Fair

 

"Lola Parks is the most mature, original, soulful and honest fusion/folk act I've had the pleasure to witness. Sandy Powlik’s dangerous writing and immaculate vocal stylings inspire me to get up tomorrow.” - Barry Newman, Cosmic Debris Mag
