ARTIST SPOTLIGHT: OUR CHAT WITH LOLÉ ...
Which artists old or new inspire you the most? "Artists that most inspire me are Erykah Badu and George Michael because they are two of the greatest soulful artists."
When you start working on a new idea or song what is the first thing you do to kick start the idea? "I feel the instrumental or beat, then create a melody by humming or free styling a melody over the track."
Are there any producers or artists you would love to collaborate with? "I would love to collab with Pharrell, Grades and Kaytranada as they are some of my favourite producers right now. I would love to feature with Anderson Paak, Sinead Harnett and Kelela."
What is your go to track of the moment? "My go-to track right now would be Talk about forever by Mabel "
Do you prefer performing live or studio recording? "I love to both record in the studio and perform live, but performing live is more intimate for me and knowing that the audience are there feeling my music gives me such a rush of energy."
Are you heading to or performing at any festivals this year? "I won't be performing at any festivals this year as I am focusing on my EP, however I am definitely heading to a few festivals."
What’s next for you this year? "Releasing my EP by September, which I can't wait to let the world hear, I am also looking to sign a publishing deal by the end of this year."
Who are your style icons and why? "Style icons would be Erykah Badu, Rihanna, Adwoa Aboah, I admire their styles because they don't stick to trend they create their own which is similar to my fashion style. I rarely stay on trend."
What’s your ‘go-to’ item of clothing for any stage performance? "Jewellery is my go-to item, I feel naked without rings or earrings. It rounds my outfit off and looks great with everything."
Why are you excited to perform at Bicester Village? "I am super excited to play at Bicester because I have never had the opportunity to play such an intimate set to a large and diverse international audience."
