“You’ve never heard of a band like this come out of Colorado. Promise. Lola Rising calls its sound “Jahawaiian” – an island folk rock. And while the pitch of a ukulele melody might seem to run counter to Colorado’s landlocked culture, it slides oddly well. Almost too well. With its infectious “Oh-whoa-whoas” and quick tempo lines, Lola Rising puts your winter-drenched mind at ease with a tropical wakeup call. Craft Mai Tais anyone?”
- Rooster Magazine
"One of the bright artists to come out of Colorado. Their unique sound and way to takeover a crowd of any size is impressive. They make new fans everywhere and it's one of the many reasons I keep booking them on our select festivals."
Clay Busch - Former Festival Producer for Danny Wimmer Presents and
Hermosa Beach Summer Series with 5B Artist + Media
"Colorado based band Lola Rising combines several styles in their infectious and unique sound. With a Dance Hall Island Reggae Rock vibe they create very dance - able grooves. High energy, inspiring lyrics, beautiful harmonies and the obvious love and passion for humanity flows from the stage. The musicianship and the showmanship is not forced, it comes out naturally and gives the audience a big hug of spirituality and compassion. Go see this band!"

"Big shows aside, these guys make the essence of music their driving force for creativity."
- Spinnaker Radio, University of Northern Florida College Radio
Opened the main stage at the 2015 Big Ticket Festival in Jacksonville, FL.
"The crowd was surprisingly early, turning up in HUGE numbers for Lola Rising."
-Rock Revolt Magazine
"These Coloradans dished out supremely like-able dance rock with a distinctive island flair, ukuleles and all. Simply put, from the opening island-infused notes of Colorado’s Lola Rising to the thunderous close of Twenty One Pilots,
there was no let down on either stage."
