Denver natives Paul medina Guevara, Woody Roberts, Kevin Eady, Matt Fink, Sarah Joelle Hoffenberg and Joe Z came to the consensus of forming a band. Not knowing what to call themselves the extracted the word ‘Lola’, meaning grandmother in Filipino, and the word ‘Rising’ to evoke imagery from their listeners. Overall their name alone posses spirituality and embraces the human condition as a whole. Despite that, their music is upbeat and loveable with soothing acoustics and fast tempos, at times. Their use of harmonies make their vibes familiar and thought- provoking. These harmonies can be most seen in their new album Westward Bound. This album contains continuous fun times and leaves you feeling as if the air had gotten lighter. This new album for Lola Rising is propelling the band farther than ever before. Lola is truly on the Rise.
