1 – When did you first get into music? What or who Inspired you?

I been singing for about 10 years now. My husband, Kevin has always played in Bands so I have always been in a musical environment. It was Kevin who encouraged me to start singing and he has been so supportive in my career

 

2 – Who did you grow up listening to, and does that impact on what you create now?

I have listened to all sorts of music from the 20’s onwards since i was a little girl. I used to love singing along to Doris Day, Ella Fitzgerald and Peggy Lee as I was growing up. I always loved old movies and glamour. I have always dressed in Vintage clothes and loved old music. This has a massive impact on me now. I anything retro with a bit of old fashioned glamour thrown in!

 

3 – How long have you been playing/writing?

I have been working for 9 years as a professional singer. I started as a solo act and then I started working with 2 Bands. It was only last year that I acme interested in writing original material. You never know what you can do until you try!!

 

4 – How often do you play live (include details and links for any upcoming gigs)?

I am lucky to have a lot of work and it’s always different. All my show dates are on my website www.lolalamour.net

 

5 – What has been your favourite moment in music?

That’s a tough question. There are so many highs that you experience as a singer. You can sing to 5 people or 5000 people and always draw something different from it. Music is an amazing thing and can reach so many people in so many ways. I always enjoy speaking to the audience after a show. If you make people happy, you always come home smiling. That is my favourite thing in this business
