Lola Lamour has been a professional singer and all-round entertainer for over 15 years, and has a penchant for musical styles from the 1940s and 1950s.
A sparklingly original artist who perfectly captures the glamour of that era, Lola Lamour is a reminder that they don’t make them like they used to! Lola transports her audiences to a bygone age when big band music dominated the musical landscape, and brings the spirit of those party years into the modern world.
Her energy, enthusiasm, and talent has ensured her popularity on the vintage circuit, touring throughout the UK and Europe and playing huge stages to packed crowds.
She has been featured in the Daily Mail, the Telegraph, The Lady Magazine, Radio 4’s Woman’s Hour, Radio 2, GMTV and countless other outlets, and as that list grows so does the profile of Lola Lamour and her band.
Lola grew up listening to fantastic singers such as Peggy Lee, Ella Fitzgerald and Doris Day, and as a teenage girl they epitomised all she longed to be – glamorous and sultry with amazing voices that pulled you into a song.
She has always loved that early music, and the fact that all the greats started singing with Bands. Performers from that era were never “just” singers – they acted as they sang a song, and you believed it. In the same tradition, Lola sets out to entertain, not merely sing, and she just loves performing live!
The fashion styles from the past have always been a passion of hers. She collects items from the 30’s to the 60’s, and has a huge collection of original clothes that she loves to wear during her performances.
Before she became a full time entertainer, Lola started her career in banking, then for several years she worked for Lord Lichfield at his private residence, Shugborough Hall in Staffordshire, until he sadly passed away in 2005. The famous royal photographer once surprised her by setting aside some of his time to conduct a full photo-shoot for her at various locations on the Estate, which was quite a privilege!
