Biography

Lola King & the Kickstarts are an exciting new band built around the songwriting partnership of Lola King and her brother Dan. Having toured the UK fronting indie-popsters Kyoshi (playing with the likes of Kingpin, Bloc Party and the Mentalists)

Lola King is an imaginative and brave lyricist who cites her greatest lyrical influences as Bob Dylan and Lauryn Hill. Her unique, rythmic phrasing combined with her jazz/pop melodies and noticeably British accent sit beautifully on top of the guitar based, raw indie sound of the Kickstarts.

Lola King had a vision for a modern take on the classic 4 piece band. She got her brother Dan on board, in-house producer at Kickstart Studios (producer of tracks for Jeanette Akua, Kurtis, Universal Records) and they set about recruiting the hottest rhythm section in London; BBC Philharmonic bassist, Chris Curtis, and young upstart ACM graduate, Shaun Lee on drums and percussion.
