*NO APOLOGIES* is a musical shotgun to your heart with empowering and inclusive messaging that centres around owning all of who we are, standing strong in our roots, speaking our truth and standing up for what’s right. It’s a sonic journey that calls us to value and honour ourselves and our right to be here, to be ourselves and to respect others. It’s about awareness & responsibility, empowerment & optimism.

“Lola Parks is an award-winning soul folk singer-songwriter with a mission to achieve cultural brokerage through voice and song. She sings with an honesty that inspires her audience to dig deeper and share a genuine connection across diverse barriers. Lola’s dangerous lyrics and seductive voice compel listeners of all ages to move closer, in hopes of capturing every note and word. Her new album, No Apologies, featuring “Dreamer” and “Freight Train” is a musical shotgun to your heart and will be available on September 25th on all major platforms.”

I'm really proud of every track & there really is something in it for everyone: it will uplift you, make you think, sigh, grin & dance.

THANK YOU:
With sincerest #gratitude to the First Peoples' Cultural Council, Creative BC & the Province of British Columbia - your continued support for BC artists to create and share #music has made the latest musical dream a reality. My heart smiles on the awesomest musical team too - Jeff Dawson (producer/engineer/mixer), MJ Dandeneau (bass) & Adam Dobres (electric guitar) --we weathered delays, social distancing and travel restrictions (almost) like we weren't navigating through a pandemic storm. You make music better & I love you hugely for it.

Thanks to all who've been along for this musical escapade. May we continue on the path for years to come.

🎶Merci for adventuring with me & daring to dream the music dream. 🎶

About

Vancouver-based singer-songwriter SANDY POWLIK has been turning heads for years. From fronting a 17-piece big band, co-founding/sole lyricist/vocalist for folk rock group, Sonnenblume, she has since staged her own show, LOLA PARKS, for over a decade. 

A nationally-recognized multi-award winner, including “Most Outstanding Musician – Vocal Jazz" and “Female Songwriter of the Year,” her 2011 release (Here) garnered three VIMA nominations and continues to receive international and playlist attention. She is a skillful and intelligent songwriter straddling genres unapologetically, staying true to her jazz roots while allowing her world pop sensibilities to surface.

LOLA is a female Indigenous Canadian musical artist of Montagnais (Innu), Ukrainian, French and British ancestry, compelled to create and share her art, to give and be a voice. Over the years, she has created a fiercely independent musical history that includes studio session recordings, collaborations and performing around the world. She has led Western Canada tours and had TV/film/radio placements on TV's "Higher Ground", Mutant Film's "The Orchard" and CBC Radio’s “Early Edition” theme song. 

“Lola Parks is an award-winning singer-songwriter with a mission to achieve cultural brokerage through voice and song. Lola sings with an honesty that inspires her audience to dig deeper and share a genuine connection across diverse barriers. Through a stream of original content, her dangerous lyrics and seductive voice compel listeners of all ages to move closer, in hopes of capturing every note and word." 

Her new album, No Apologies, featuring “Dreamer” and “Freight Train” is a musical shotgun to your heart, daring you to dream: awake and empowered. Now available on all major platforms.
